    How to rename Hotmail account after reconnecting on Outlook 2013


    Hello,

    By default, when adding hotmail accounts on Outlook using EAS, the account got added with FULL HOTMAIL NAME:
    L: xxx@hotmail.com.

    There was a process by which the left pane of Outlook showed any Name that user wanted.

    Now with reconnecting Hotmail account in Outlook (going to Exchange), the same situation of FULL HOTMAIL NAME in the left panel has come up.

    The older process (with EAS) does not work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    :)

  2. How to synchronize Outlook 2013 and Windows Phone 8

    Have you installed and set up the Outlook Hotmail Connector? The Outlook Hotmail Connector is an add-in to Outlook and is used to sync Contacts and Appointments from Outlook 2010 (or earlier versions of Outlook) to a Windows Live/Outlook.com account.

    You can learn how to set up the Outlook Hotmail Connector in this article that I have posted to my blog.


    The Outlook Hotmail Connector is not used by Outlook 2013 since this functionality is built into Outlook 2013. Outlook 2013 syncs Contacts, Appointments and Tasks directly to a Windows Live/Outlook.com account

  3. name of outlook account

    To syncronize your Outlook related data that is on your computer, you need to install the Outlook Hotmail Connector. The Outlook Hotmail Connector is an Add-in to Outlook 2010 (and earlier versions) and is used to sync the Outlook-related data between
    your computer and your Microsoft account. Once you've installed and set up the Outlook Hotmail Connector, the data will sync to your Microsoft account and then to your phone and vice versa.

    See my article entitled "Using the Outlook Hotmail Connector" to learn how to set up the Outlook Hotmail Connector on your computer.


    If you are using Outlook 2013 on your computer, you won't install the Outlook Hotmail Connector. See my article entitled "Sync Outlook 2013
    to a Microsoft Account" to learn how to set up Outlook 2013 to sync to your Microsoft Acctount.


    Like you, the primary Microsoft account that I use on my windows phone does not use a Microsoft related email address. Instead I am using an @mindspring.com email address. I have set up the Outlook Hotmail Account on my computer to sync my Outlook 2010 data
    to this Microsoft account.

  4. How to rename Hotmail account after reconnecting on Outlook 2013

    When you say old process were you connecting to "Hotmail" as a POP account?

    Mine shows exactly as yours does but even before I did the reconnect it showed that way.

    No, POP was old old way. Then MS moved to EAS and now Exchange.
