First post here. Sorry if it is a lame one. I hope to get some answers though, as I could not figure it out for my self.
I went to www.outlook.com
as it seems MS is shifting over to that address. Decided to try it out I applied it for my regular hotmail-address (seems dumb, but I wanted to get my feet wet right away). The migration to the new address was fast and painless, until I decided to logon using aMSN.
First it said that the username/password was mismatching, obviously since it is now migrated to an @outlook.com address. So I tipped it in and fixed the password. It logs in just fine, but all my contacts are blank, along with chat history etc. Naturally since aMSN thinks of this as a new profile. The real question is: How do I migrate my hotmail profile to the new outlook profile in aMSN?
I tried to copy the content of the hotmail folder to the newly auto-created outlook folder inside of C:\Users\MyName\amsn\my_email_outlook_com\ but that doesn't do it of course. I tried to skip a few of the config files first to see if it matters, and then when the first attempt failed I tried to copy each of the config files manually one by one into the new folder. The only thing that now happens when I launch aMSN is that it shows my old hotmail address, then I change it to the outlook domain and tip in the password, only to get an error saying that it's wrong somehow. It still works perfectly if I erase the automatically created outlook_com folder entirely, but not if I try to transfer the hotmail content to the outlook folder.
Any suggestion on how to migrate this in an easy way? I still want my old contact list etc...
Thanks in advance!
