LiewCF's Windows Live account summary

LiveSide revealed that Microsoft has enabled the Windows Live ID registration with ended with LIVE.COM (or other country top-level domain). Meaning, now you can get a yourname@live.com email account!

How to register Windows Live ID?

Simply goto http://get.live.com/getlive/overview to signup your Windows Live ID for local domains (e.g. @live.com.my, changed according to your location). Although LiveSide provided a link for @live.com signup but it doesn’t work for me.

Migrate Hotmail or MSN mail to Windows Live

For those with existing hotmail.com or msn.com accounts, you can migrate your email inbox to Windows Live Mail using TrueSwitch. You can visit Windows Live Fresh Start for more information.

My two cents

I grabbed liewcf@live.com.my and lcf@live.com.my before telling you the news. :P

I can’t get to register LIVE.COM or Windows Live ID for other country top-level domain. The signup page automatically detects your location. I think, we can use proxy server to mask our location. ;)

Register your favorite Windows Live ID now before other people grab it!
