Sign On to Hotmail Account

Since Microsoft officially retired the Hotmail brand, along with its familiar user interface, this option has been revoked, meaning if you’ve been automatically upgraded to Outlook.com you’re stuck with it. That’s why you cannot sign on with Hotmauil.com, or with @hotmail.co.uk/@hotmail.com in your email address which is also referred to your username. However, the same will be used as Outlook.com, meaning that Outlook.com will be used instead of Hotmail.com. Even if you visit Hotmail.com from your browser, you will be redirected to a new login page for Outlook.com which is https://www.live.com/.

Note: Windows Live is a discontinued brand name for a set of web services and software products from Microsoft as part of their software plus services platform owned by Microsoft Corporation.
