Microsoft to Offer Live.com Addresses
Starting June 20, Microsoft customers will be able to sign up for a new e-mail address from the company under the @live.com and @windowslive.com domain names. The address will be associated with Windows Live ID, formerly known as Passport, and will work with any MSN or Windows Live service.
The new e-mail account will not include current contacts, but Microsoft is working on a migration tool that will allow users to import them from Hotmail and MSN. "If you are excited about the new domains names then definitely sign up and let your contacts know about your new address. This is a great opportunity to make get the account name you have always wanted," says the Windows Live Mail team.
