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.

Log out of your Hotmail e-mail account.

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

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.

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.

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.
