Hotmail to Outlook email address convert


How to change your @hotmail.com to a new @outlook.com
  1. Log into outlook.com with your Hotmail credentials.
  2. Once in, click the engine wheel located on the top right of the page.
  3. In this menu, select "More mail settings".
  4. Now, look for the option "Rename email address" under the "Managing your account title"
  5. Change what you want and your done, click OK/Save.
If your Hotmail account does not have a strong password that conforms to outlook.com requirements (i.e. at least 8 characters with at least two of: upper case, lower case, number, symbol) you must first change your Hotmail password then you can do the conversion.
Also note that you may be asked to supply a phone number and other information in case something goes wrong and they need to contact you. A phone number for sure has to be entered. A dummy phone number with area code and 123-4567 worked. You may or may not need to supply a security question. I supplied and tried to avoid the phone number. Now I cannot remove it. The other passwored recovery questions appear to be optional.
