You may have no intention to change to outlook, but it will change for you, there is nothing you can do about it.

Some users have suggested there have been similar issues on the SkyDrive cloud storage service, but Microsoft has offered no comment on those reports.

Hotmail users will be migrated to the new Outlook.com service, but can retain their Hotmail.com email address should they wish.

The move has been seen as an attempt by the Windows-maker to claw back ground lost to competitors such as Google, whose Gmail service has proved immensely popular since its launch in 2004.

i remember watching an interview with one of the directors a few years ago, he was saying that new email addresses were getting spam before hotmail sent them an email to confirm the account!!
