Most people use multiple email addresses for different reasons. Some people do it for protection and some to filter email messages. However, with HOTMAIL, as well as other email provider have the option to create an ALIAS.
An alias is an additional email address that uses the same inbox, contact list, and account settings as the primary alias. You can sign in to your account with any alias using your standard username and password. Creating aliases will help us filter messages as well as to protect our main email account from hackers.
Here’s how to create an ALIAS with HOTMAIL:
Sign in to Outlook on the web using any Microsoft account, including email accounts ending in @outlook.com, @live.com, @hotmail.com or @msn.com.
1. Sign in to MY ACCOUNT
2. Click “ Your Info” which is located on the top of the page.
3. On the profile page, click Manage your sign-in to Microsoft. Verification might be needed on this part. Just follow the instructions.
4. On Manage how you sign in to Microsoft, you can make or add your Alias. Either you create a new email address and add it as an alias or Add and existing email address as a Microsoft alias.
5. And you are done.
You can create multiple ALIASES to your desire or as you need. This can help you filter your email messages fast.
