Move from Office 365 to

This question has suggested answer(s) This question has suggested answer(s)

Hi,  I am coming to the end of my Office 365 trial and i have decided that it isnt for me.  I have a custom domain and associated email address and i dont want to lose it so i want to move it to a hotmail/ account.  Do i have to remove my domain from office 365 before i can then add it to hotmail/ is this straight forward to do?  I have my hosting(?) with melbourne IT.


I also have a wp7 and xbox and i have read horror stories of people losing xboxlive gold/zune subsciptions, am i in danger of doing this as my liveid is my email address?


Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    I setup a new account but i couldnt get me Melbourne IT registration to link to it.  I had the MX records but it needed an A record to point to it.  I looked all over and tried anything but i couldnt get it to work.

    However, i notice the my old hotmail account left over from Office Small business, or what ever i was using before office 365, which originally had my domain on it was receiving the emails to it.  So i am using this now and it is working fine, i have the free email that iwanted using my domain, but it isnt the new interface, but i dont mind.  

    It worked out OK in the end.
