Something you may not know.....
Many hotmail users had been switched to Outlook.com AUTOMATICALLY by Microsoft without their consent.
Windows Live forum moderators insist that those users were notified in advance of the " switch over ".
Worst, those being switched over withouy their consent are not able to switch back to hotmail.
MS want everyone switch to Outlook.com. We all realize that. But this tactic is distasteful, to put it mildly.
