I have recently changed my password twice, due to a hacking problem, my mistake.
I note that in My Account, I have a Unique ID allocated by Hotmail.
My Account also offers me the ability to change my "Windows Live ID" - what I call my e-mail address, ie. the bit that ends in email@example.com.
I would like to change this windows live ID. I have had it for over 6 years and a clear out is called for. However, I must not loose my existing folders etc.
If I change my Windows Live ID, (but keep The Unique ID issued by hotmail) will I loose all my current folders and all the information stored in them plus all the e-mails in my current inbox??
I do not want to close the account, all I would like to do is change my e-mail address/windows live ID without losing all my old e-mails that I have not deleted.
