Upgrading account to @outlook.com

I'm curious as to whether I should upgrade my @hotmail.com email address to the @outlook.com for the Xbox? Has anyone done this already and will it affect anything on my account?

This should not effect anything either way if both accts are still active email address you use. If the hotmail is no longer one you use then updating to a current email is always a good idea.

Hey there Digital

Just reminding you.

As you are an Ambassador, if you do change your email, you will have to tell them via twitter @XboxSupport

Or Post on the forums and a Support Agent will look into this.

You might know of this info.

I just thought I might remind you though.

Good luck!

Another thing to add,

When they make the change of your email address in the Ambassador program, you won't be able to use the Ambassdor chat while they are making the change until they make the change.

You will only be able to use the forums as an Ambassador

Well I've actually just read that upgrading to outlook I will still retain the @hotmail.com as my main account it's just when I sign in to hotmail it will be the new outlook instead of hotmail so wouldn't lose anything.

What if I was to switch my alias to @hotmail.com and use the @outlook.com as my main? I've read that it messes with features on windows phone like the marketplace, would the same happen to the Xbox?

@Logical, That's another thing! If I was to rename my main email it will still be the same, only the @hotmail would change to @outlook so I'm not exactly sure if it would affect the ambassador chat? If it does I probably won't bother because I've already been through that once before.

I've done it. It's keeps everything the same. It just keeps everything the same. Your Email is just more organized. It's all Microsoft, so it's all synced

Hey again Digital,

I was an Ambassador before, I was an level 4 but I got removed due to some reasons I can't say at the moment.

I updated my email and I couldn't use the Ambassador chat or the Ambassabank.

But as far as I know you will be able to use the forums as an Ambassador.

You could PM XboxAmbassadors

To make the change.

It will take a process of 2 Weeks.

If they don't reply back to you within that time limit then PM one of the staffs so they will look into this.

Right now I use my gmail address to sign in to hotmail/outlook, xbox, and zune. If I change that to my @outlook address will it screw anything up with zune pass or my xbox gamertag and acheivments? And will I then sign in using the @outlook address across all accounts?
