Please disregard my previous post because when i send mail from my msn dot com acct when it is received as from outlook dot com. I am not interested in outlook dot com

Fair enough but I would say is amongst the nicest webmail interfaces amongst the free providers, and due to their service being backed by Microsoft you're sure it'll be around for many years to come. Is it only the domain instead of that bothers you? If you already had the domain it should still function ; they're all part of the same service, and existing, and were never deleted to my knowledge. Only for new sign-ups it seems to automatically redirect to

I am not entirely sure, but new sign-ups are either, or outlook.cctld domains.
Already existing accounts using the domain should be fine. I never used it myself, so not entirely sure, but I never read any article announcing that existing users would have their domains changed. New sign-ups with aren't possible anymore, which is a pity because the domain indeed is short and sweet. That said, is a nice domain too (I am not too enthousiast about the name "Hotmail" but due to its popularity I guess few people would bother that the name is a bit childish)

I believe that after 270 days (9 months) of inactivity on a Microsoft email account (msn, live, outlook, hotmail) all messages are permanently deleted. After an addition 3 months (one year of inactivity) the account is completely closed. So if you havenít logged into your msn email account in over one year it is probably gone forever and you wonít be able to get that (or any other) .msn email address.

In most cases you will have multiple aliases under your single Microsoft account. In Outlook online, click your photo (or the icon) in the upper right corner (to the right of the ?) and choose:
  • Edit profile
  • Manage your sign-in email or phone number
You should then see all of the aliases currently assigned to your Microsoft account. This will include,,, and email addresses.
