    I logged into my hotmail and now im greeted to the message that they upgraded my account to outlook without me doing so.


    I had already made a alias for when I was ready to upgrade and I was going to switch my email to my alias when I upgraded now it appears im out of luck

    So did they wipe out my chances of upgrading and changing the email address? Did they cut my SkyDrive from 25gbs to 7?

    wTf has this happened to anybody else? Did my app purchases on wp7 transfer over ??

    Take a deep breath, step away from the computer and take another deep breath...

    Have you actually tried to email anyone yet? Your email didn't change.

    You merely got the "Outlook.com look" and that is as far it will go. They will never change your email address. Read the fine print (actually, it's not really fine, it's pretty huge). You can even change back to the old look.

    To see how much SkyDrive space you still have, you could, you know, just log into SkyDrive as it says it in the Left hand pane. My bet? You still have 25GB.

    My wife's hotmail switched to the outlook version a few minutes ago, so I had to talk her through it, so don't feel bad, you're not the only one surprised by the change.
