How to put a different name on outlook.com alias? I have my main address with my real first name and last name. I set up an alias, but when I send emails with it, I don't want my real first and last names to appear. In other words, I want a different screen name for each address. How do I do this?

I don't think this is a feature of Outlook.com yet. You could always set up another account and link them –  bungeshea Dec 27 '12 at 20:45

Microsoft removed linked accounts from outlook.com.

Microsoft said Monday that it is eliminating the ability to link accounts within Outlook.com, replacing them with aliases instead.
