    • I’ve been on calls and live chats with no much help until they finally told me this is not possible.
      This is so annoying!!! Please keep this post alive if anybody knows of a solution…. (I’m still hopeful I guess)

      • “This email is part of a reserved domain. Please enter a different email address.”

        This is the message it shows if you try to add an account created on hotmail, that as the steps above shows to press “remove” to be converted to outlook.com.
        Once removed from the steps above there’s no turning back at this point.

  1. I think this trick does not work anymore. You can revert Outlook.com email id now, once it has changed. Otherwise, you have to keep using the old Hotmail account.

  3. well, i have one BIG problem with MS and their changing the interface. It is not usable by me with a screen reader. None of the usual buttons are there and navigation is a real pain now. I use jaws on my windows machine and firefox for the browser. I have tried other browsers only to have the same usability issue. There doesn’t appear to be a way to contact MS and tell them that this is a real show stopper. any suggestions?

  7. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with
    SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very
    good results. If you know of any please share. Cheers!

  8. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems with your site.

    It appears like some of the written text within your posts are running off the
    screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

  9. First of all I would like to say great blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Thanks!

  11. I don’t like the new change to Hotmail to Outlook because I didn’t even say yes or no to this change and they did it all for us. And now that we have it we can’t even change it back this is not good. We need solution to fix this situation and they should have ask yes or no to upgrade the Hotmail to Outlook. I am so confused and mad that they are doing this. Even Emailing people are different and confusing too.

  12. For my main email, I was able to revert to the Windows Live interface. With one of my ghost emails, I cannot revert. The option is not present in the drop box. I hate Outlook’s interface. I have a Win8 computer, but there are a few features I don’t use. I hate the general design, because it feels very 1997 to me. It’s flat and ugly. Pretty soon I expect some Nsync knockoff boyband to pop up and do a cover of Digital Getdown.
