I've had many problems with outlook.com. Earlier in the year someone in the Microsoft Community suggested I should move to the Outlook that I have in my Office 365 Home.

Here are a few of the points that immediately come to mind:

(1) I log onto around 140 organisations (including on-line suppliers, power providers, local authorities, forums and the like). I also use my current email address for exchanging emails with family and friends. My current email address is "mynameAToutlook.com" - would it change if I move away from outlook.com to Outlook? If so, what would it change to?
(2) Contacting everybody to tell them about my new email address would be a huge task. Would emails sent to my old outlook.com address automatically be sent to my new address?
(3) What would happen to all my existing folders, contact, my calendar etc?

I'm hoping that you're going to tell me it won't be a problem, of course!

1. No your address won't change if you are checking mail in Outlook desktop - it's just a different client for the outlook.com email account.
2. Only if you add an alias to the current account so all mail goes into one mailbox.
3. If you open the existing account in Outlook desktop, the folders will sync down.

This Is my outlook.com account in a web browser and in Outlook desktop software that was installed with my Office 365 subscription.
