We could say this is kind of a hidden trick of Gmail.

Use Gmail. In Gmail, you can "Archive" old mail messages that you most likely don't want to see anymore to free the inbox from clutter; but the messages will still be there if you go to "All Mail" (or search).

Your Windows Live account page should show a "Registered since" date. (This is for any Live/MSN account, not just for Hotmail.)

It may time out within a day, but if not in cases like these, you may need to recover the account. What that means is either customer support or web form will take you through a series of questions about the account that only you could know, like creation date (don't worry, they realize that it won't be down to the specific day), or maybe someone you ...

Hotmail will not let anyone else register with an existing Windows Live ID username before 365 days after that username has been cancelled/deleted. It may also be possible that someone has registered a Windows Live ID username without opening a hotmail account. In that case, nobody else can use that Windows Live ID username in a hotmail email-address.

Unfortunately, email services from live.com have been discontinued. If you already have one, they will remain active and no end-date has been published to my knowledge for them being deleted. However, new signups have been disabled for some time in favour of outlook.com and Office365.

Your values are accurate. Your Outlook\Live\Hotmail messages and data are stored on Microsoft servers. Skydrive is a separate service that you have simply by having an Outlook.com account (not always do you have this, many people do). If you have Outlook locally installed on your computer there are ways to save mail on your hard drive, or in Windows 7 and 8 ...

There is lifehacker article called Reformat your Gmail address with dots that discusses this great feature.

One thing you could try is using a second domain to redirect. It looks like Windows Live would support you creating an email domain, of say mail.example.com and then you could create a catchall on your registrar's site (GoDaddy instructions for example) for the "main"/primary domain. catcher@example.com (is catchall) (redirects to ...

Within Windows Live multiple folders are created for Gmail by default. One will be inbox another will be the Gmail accounts folders themselves (All Mail, Drafts, Sent etc).

Use the forwarding option to forward all email to a backup address. e.g. yournamebackup@hotmail.com. Make sure that the "keep a copy of forwarded messages..." is ticked. This way, any emails deleted will still be accessible after your seven days have passed. Just log into your backup account and forward the email to undelete to your main address. I'd use ...
