Windows Live Hotmail

To me @Live addresses are cool even though I like Gmail interface and email handling a lot better than Hotmail. It is short and sweet and stands out. When Microsoft announced that it will open up the @Live addresses I was excited. But then the news faded and there was no word for a while. In the mean time our unofficial hackers came up with a hack that will let us get @Live addresses (unofficially) by changing few parameters in the browser URL.

Here is how you do it,

  1. Visit the Windows Live Hotmail subscription page
  2. Click the “Get it free” button 
  3. When the new page comes up, in the address bar, replace “hmnewuser.aspx” with “newuser.aspx”
  4. Locate and delete “&hm=1” from the same address bar
  5. Hit enter, and when the page reloads it will let you create @live addresses

Enjoy!!! And make sure to get your @live addresses as soon as you can as this hack might not work forever.
