|Q:||Can I switch back from Outlook.com to Hotmail?|
There is no longer an option to switch back to Hotmail. Your Hotmail address and password, saved emails, contacts, calendars, and rules were automatically moved to your new Outlook.com inbox.
We think Outlook.com builds on the great tools in Hotmail, and we hope you’ll agree. You get all the features you loved in Hotmail, like Sweep and one-click Unsubscribe, along with new features like archiving and a refreshed design. Outlook.com helps you see and do more from your inbox quickly. The streamlined interface shows more messages at a glance, and the new toolbar helps you complete everyday email tasks with fewer clicks.
