Windows Live Hotmail
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Like some of the previous posters I have had my "@msn.com" address for many years via my Verizon DSL ISP. Now I am considering switching to a Verizon Wireless aircard (UM175USB)instead of the hard-wired DSL. Can I keep my msn address if I cancel my DSL and switch to Verizon Wireless?
Many many people, especially across europe, use the MSN Live Messenger. And everybody calls it simply "MSN". "Do you have MSN? What's your MSN?"
Personally I like to have a @msn.com address to go with my messenger profile. And I strongly believe this is why the majority of other people prefer it as well, over the 'default' @hotmail.com address.
my answers is: msn.com looks more professional
thank you leo for your information
I didn't know that you have to pay for msn.com
I want MSN, NOT hotmail, because I get it free with my DSL connection. More to the point, the format for MSN that I have been getting has folders to which I can sort the messages I wish to save, while I delete the rest. I have yet to figure out how to find these folders on the hotmail buttons, nor can I find out how to get back my regular e-mail with folders already filled out on MSN. Do you know how to do this?
I would assume msn.com is desirable because it is short and easy to remember. That's why I want one!! Seems obvious to me. I like gmail.com because it is short and dislike googlemail.com because it is long. Having hotmail.com is so common and boring. Simnple as that I reckon!?
ok here is the deal. I have an msn email for my business. No joke it is easy to put on marketing because it's short. Not like hotmail and I get less junk too. Also aol is the only other shoert extension I could use and I HATE AOL. Now for the record I have never been charged anyp premium service. So not sure what that is all about. But I have to MSN accounts and I like them because are business name is long and the msn makes it the business name work for us. But that is my reason for using it. I also use my business extension due to we have our own website. OK just giving some feedback

The reason people like the .msn extension is that it is much shorter and easier to use than .hotmail. It's that simple....really!
Getting an MSN email address could not be any easier my friend. I'm surprised you didn't know. If you allowed me tp put the link in here I would, but I know you don't allow it. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GOOGLE "HOW CAN I GET AN MSN EMAIL ADDRESS AND YOU WILL SEE THE SITE. Easy as pie! Just fill in your info and "bam!" You now have an MSN address! And contrary to what you say about "not caring"...I for one DO CARE. Having an "MSN" email address carries a tad more professional appeal then "Yahoo" or "Hotmail"...trust me!
The ONLY reason I want an MSN email account is because I want to use Outlook, which doesn't support Hotmail.....You can get an MSN email account, but it's NOT free!
I have business cards printed with the msn.com address. I sent the cards out and now can't open the email account using msn.com. It hasn't been used for over 6 months and just may be deactivated but I already sent the cards.
That's my story
