What has changed in Hotmail, with the signing in process?

Asked by flo (7369 points ) October 22nd, 2013

I know it used to be that it made a difference whether you put in @hotmail.com or @live.com etc. next to the username or not. What does someone who hasn’t signed in for a while need to know that is new?

The password doesn’t work is the issue.

I’m shocked to be reading hotmail still exists….

That it is now outlook express.

Still, your hotmail.com address ought to work and you still will have the hotmail.com trailer to that address.

The main recent change is they disabled linked accounts due to security issues, so if you have more than one microsoft account (hotmail, live or outlook) you can no longer easily switch between them from one login. And yes, you still need to include whatever is after the @ sign when you sign in.

The interface is all new and much better IMO.

Thank you all.

Gmail goes back and forth from the new Compose to the older (and perfect) Compose. Why can’t they leave well enough alone?
