Changing Windows LIVE ID email address (not the ID associated with Xbox account)

Currently I use yahoo as my email provider. It's tied to all my online accounts anywhere pretty much, including my Windows LIVE ID which has this account tied to it for both Zune and Xbox. I've been a little annoyed by yahoo lately. I went to to see my options. I'm thinking of switching to Windows Hotmail and changing my Windows LIVE ID email address from my @yahoo address to an @live address. The only thing I'm wondering, will this change transfer to my Xbox/Zune account as well automatically since I'm not actually changing the Windows LIVE ID but just the email address associated with it?

If you're changing the contact email, then it won't change your WLID. If you change the email listed as the WLID then it will update the ID on all of the services.
