Here are instructions on how you can register a live.com ID at Microsoft, it's a few simple steps and after that you will maybe snap up an ID that's not already registered to someone else. I got mine and have verified that these steps do in fact work. Enjoy!

How to get a Live.com ID

Note:
  • If you do not change to US (skip step four), you'll get @windowslive.com domain address
  • If you change to 'China', you'll get @live.cn domain address
  • If you change to 'Korea', you'll get @live.co.kr domain address and so on...
  • It seems like Windows Live Mail only works with @live.com addresses at the moment
  • Please note that after migrating to @live.com domain, your previous NON-HOTMAIL/MSN email address will no longer be associated with passport
  • Currently, it only works for NON-HOTMAIL/MSN email addresses (in Step 1)

Passport = Live ID

You can change your current Live ID to @live.com or @windowslive.com

That's what this does for you.

There was a JavaScript trick posted on the Neowin forum yesterday (originally from Mess.be). I signed up directly for a @live.com account. Got just the one I wanted. :)

Was trying to figure out what all the buzz is.

My hotmail has been Windows Live Mail since god knows when.
My hotmail was working on Windows Live Mail as of the first post of this thread.

Confused, but it's Friday so who cares?

Good weekend all.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
