Hey there.

The option you're actually looking for on the account security screen is "Change Microsoft Account." This will allow you to change the account associated with your Gamertag. (and ultimately your e-mail) Just login with your Hotmail account and you should be good to go. As of now, this is the only way to "change your e-mail" but this will enable you to use Windows Live Messenger on your gamertag's profile and the like.

However, do note that if you have any microsoft points on your current account, they will not transfer if you change your gamertag's account. Also, there is no way to change just the e-mail associated with your Gamertag due to limitations on how Microsoft accounts work.
