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.
