Fair enough but I would say Outlook.com is amongst the nicest webmail interfaces amongst the free providers, and due to their service being backed by Microsoft you're sure it'll be around for many years to come. Is it only the domain outlook.com instead of msn.com that bothers you? If you already had the msn.com domain it should still function ; they're all part of the same service, and existing hotmail.com, live.com and msn.com were never deleted to my knowledge. Only for new sign-ups it seems to automatically redirect to outlook.com.

I am not entirely sure, but new sign-ups are either hotmail.com, outlook.com or outlook.cctld domains.
Already existing accounts using the msn.com domain should be fine. I never used it myself, so not entirely sure, but I never read any article announcing that existing msn.com users would have their domains changed. New sign-ups with msn.com aren't possible anymore, which is a pity because the domain indeed is short and sweet. That said, Outlook.com is a nice domain too (I am not too enthousiast about the name "Hotmail" but due to its popularity I guess few people would bother that the name is a bit childish)

See:
https://www.msoutlook.info/question/...ookcom-address

I believe that after 270 days (9 months) of inactivity on a Microsoft email account (msn, live, outlook, hotmail) all messages are permanently deleted. After an addition 3 months (one year of inactivity) the account is completely closed. So if you havenít logged into your msn email account in over one year it is probably gone forever and you wonít be able to get that (or any other) .msn email address.

In most cases you will have multiple aliases under your single Microsoft account. In Outlook online, click your photo (or the icon) in the upper right corner (to the right of the ?) and choose:
  • Edit profile
  • Manage your sign-in email or phone number
You should then see all of the aliases currently assigned to your Microsoft account. This will include outlook.com, hotmail.com, live.com, and msn.com email addresses.
