    Outlook Express


    On my MSN homepage they have changed the Hotmail to Outlook.com. I have several friends Email address which are Hotmail.com so do I need to change them or will it occur automatically when used.

    Thanks

    Keep using the same email addresses as before, unless your friends tell you they've changed them.

    friend123@hotmail.com will not automatically become friend123@outlook.com. They are two totally separate email addresses that can be owned by two different people.

    Many people will just stick with their Hotmail/Live/MSN email addresses as they can use the new outlook.com interface with their existing @hotmail.com, @live.com & @msn.com address.

    Apparently it's called 'branding', but in reality their naming just leads to confusion.

    Mail, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Mail Desktop, Windows Live Hotmail, Windows Live, Hotmail, MSN Hotmail, Outlook, Outlook Express, Outlook.com...
