I've been searching and trying to figure out how I got about renaming my microsoft account from a live.com to outlook.com. Every time that I try to change it I get a page that says "The email address associated with your Microsoft account can't be changed".
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or how i can go about getting around this? I really want to switch from live to outlook

If you're already using .live.com and want outlook.com doesn't it let you upgrade to outlook anyway?
Now if's a .net microsoft account say with a gmail address it won't let everyone use the rename feature.
You might have to just create a new outlook address, download your contacts photos etc and import them to the new account, and for your apps etc you must change it via the xbox to keep purchase history.
