    I created an Outlook Account and a Hotmail want to sign up for XBOX have some questions


    I created an Outlook Account and a Hotmail account and I want to sign up for XBOX

    and I have some basic questions

    01) Is Hotmail and Outlook the same thing or are they separate

    02) Is there a Live email account

    03) Is XBOX a separate email account

    04) If XBOX has to be connected to a Microsoft Email what is best Hotmail or Outlook or Live

    05) Is there a like a one year subscription for like 20 or 30 bucks with more storage

    06) If Hotmail and Outlook are separate can I use them for secondary security emails

    or is it recommended to use another email company and if so what is recommended

    07) Does XBOX account include PC MMO games such as Elder Scrolls and is Elderscrolls PC MMO

    08) I do not have an actual XBOX I am a PC Gamer only and I like PC MMO only

    09) I want at least one year of premium service on both accounts so the next question is odd

    Lets say XBOX does include PC MMO games and it has to be connected to either

    Hotmail or Outlook or Live the first year I sign up for XBOX it is connected to Hotmail

    for one year I get ingame items for Elder Scrolls thru XBOX connected to Hotmail the next

    year I pay for XBOX and it is connected to my Outlook account can my elder scrolls account

    that started up as connected to Hotmail get the ingame items or do i just edit my elder scrolls

    setting and change email from hotmail to out look

    Or is it best to just keep Elder Scrolls connected to one email and what's the prefered one

    is it best to use Outlook or Hotmail or live

    Is XBOX connected to those emails or is it seperate or is it optional

    On Elder Scrolls it says X64 I think that means PC 64 bit or something I got that

    I am only a gamer that's all

    Thanks for any help

    :)

    Trying to Move XBOX account from Hotmail to Outlook ID.

    Unfortunately, I created the outlook address literally an hour after they started enrolling and snagged THE email address I wanted…., not knowing you could rename the Hotmail account. From what I’ve been told at Microsoft Answers.com. you cannot change
    or merge Hotmail and Outlook accounts once they have been created separately, nor can you use an existing Outlook account as an alias to another account.

    Upgrading account to @outlook.com

    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?

    Change email of Xbox account with another mail

    Since outlook is already a Microsoft server email it is not possible to use the outlook email you can add another email alias that is not a Microsoft server email (@outlook.com, @live.com, @msn.com) or you can create a new outlook email in the process of
    adding an alias to the account at account.live.com/addassocid and it will put that new outlook account on the hotmail account or you can use any non MS email account.

    Now keep this in mind you can have multiple aliases that you use to sign into accounts with (if they are not already a Microsoft account)

    If you do add a new alias to your hotmail account and decide to remove your hotmail email from the account that will render the hotmail account null and void and you will never be able to get it back.

    so do not remove the hotmail email from the account if you ever think you will need it for anything in the future

    Ok, so if i create an alias and i remove my hotmail email i will not be able to use the hotmail email, but will i lose all the data and achievements of the xbox account? (i hope not...)
    You will not the only thing that you would be doing is changing the email address that you use to sign into the account with.
