    No...just Hotmail.com
    Windows Live Mail is a desktop application.

    Outlook.com is a web interface and the replacement for Hotmail.com

    Currently if you logon to Outlook.com instead of Hotmail.com (or
    Mail.live.com) you'll have access to the new Outlook.com UI. Currently you
    still have the option to switch back to the older Hotmail.com web UI (though
    that option may not be permanent)

    Note: If you create a new @outlook.com email address you will not have the
    option to switch back to the older Hotmail UI.

    Has anyone tried Outlook.com yet? Apparently that is the next step for
    Windows Live Mail and/or Hotmail.

    http://www.live.com ???

    Is it any good? Have you tried it?
    Does this mean you can also have a new account like: ?

    So does this new outlook.com account give you something like:
    ?

    Would love to hear this soon. I like to collect important email addresses.

    I didn't see an option to create an outlook.com email address, merely and
    alias from my hotmail account. My login is still my hotmail address and from
    the web interface I can send an email from my alias and of course receive
    email from my alias. I have not seen a way to send an email from my
    outlook.com alias from and email client. I haven't investigated closely. I
    am impressed by the interface and it follows very closely Windows 365 and
    the Office 2013 interface. I have been a Google/Gmail user for quite
    sometime over Microsoft's online presence, but that is changing. Bing also
    is shaping up as an excellent search engine with much easier to find options
    for narrowing a search for a novice user and great recommendations.

    See this for details
    http://blogs.office.com/b/microsoft...8/03/upgrade-from-hotmail-to-outlook-com.aspx

    And keep in mind..
    There could be an in Memphis,TE and in
    LasVegas,NV and in LosAngeles,CA all wanting
    for a rename or alias. Compound that same username
    @hotmail or live or msn.com which are also available in some other countries
    and even further compounded for all the other domain suffixes (.jp, .kr, es,
    ..au, .ca, etc).
    -i.e. there can only be one , one and so
    on for each new, renamed, alias..... a few of those elvis will succeed, the
    rest will be crying in the chapel or stuck in sorrow at heartbreak hotel.

    Create a new account is an option on http://outlook.com
    Ensure you are not signed in with an existing Live ID/Microsoft account.
    In your browser address bar enter http://outlook.com
    Choose the option to create a new account (i.e. don't sign in with an
    existing)

    Rename is only available from the web UI.

    Alias can only send mail from the web UI.

    Thanks. Hopefully an option will become available to make alias's
    regular addresses. If you have it as an alias right now there is not
    way to make it a regular address and to use it with a client.

    Ahould've realized that Spammer Guy, er, Good Guy wouldn't care about
    ads. He (Jay Tanna) started spamming his mytaxsite domain in Usenet a
    month after registering it. Time to update my anti-spam filters.

    Doubtful that will occur anytime soon.
    An alias must be removed to make it available for reuse, and a time limit
    exists on when it becomes available. And there is no guarantee that once
    available that someone else didn't grab it first.

    p.s.
    Only 5 alias can be created per year. It does not matter whether they are
    active or removed.
    Only 15 alias can be created in total, then no more, ever.

    Hence why I would continue using Spamgourmet.com for aliases.
