ive done a few searches and its only left me confused as i dont want to lose my skydrive space or anything
when outlook came out i reserved my outlook name with a alias, now im getting ready to purchase a wp8 device and i go to update my email address and it says new address and a drop down box but it only has @live.com and @hotmail.com ...nothing about outlook anywhere in there how do i get it to be renamed as outlook.com???
it also says new address where i can manually type a address in is that how ur suppose to do it? i saw screenshots of outlook.com being in the dropdown listn i mentioned earlier but its not there anymore...do i have to delete my alias @outlook.com address in order for it to appear in those drop down lists?

Go to Outlook.com. Click on the gear icon and select More Mail Settings. Click on Rename your email address. The drop box should be on "@outlook.com" as a default, though you can choose "@live" or "@hotmail." From what I've read, you need to delete your alias first.

I was thinking about changing mine too, but right now I am currently using the @live but I do have an @Hotmail and @msn and just DONT need an @outlook now!! I am sure MS will come out with another new @ email address name in a few years anyway!!!

Having anticiapted my switch from android to WP, I secured an outlook.com address right away when it was released to be sure to get the one I wanted. However, since I was coming from gmail I guess I did not understand that issue that you guys were referring to.
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
