Your e-mail address is a place where people can get a hold of you. If you no longer like your Hotmail e-mail address or if the address you have gets too much junk mail, you might want to change your Hotmail e-mail address. You can change e-mail addresses with Hotmail very quickly and easily and import all of your old contacts into your new e-mail account. You might even want to keep your old account, and use it for certain correspondence or for junk mail listings.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log out of your Hotmail e-mail account.

  2. 2

    Click "Sign Up" at the bottom of the page.

  3. 3

    Input your first and last name, and choose what you would like your new Hotmail address to be. Click "check availability" to make sure the desired address is available.

  4. 4

    Complete the rest of the form. Fill out your address and birth date, read the terms of agreement and click "Create Account" at the bottom of the page.

  5. 5

    Log in to your new account and go to your contact list. Choose "import contacts" and put in your old e-mail address and password. Hotmail will import your old contacts to your changed e-mail account.
