If you are an existing Hotmail user you’ll continue with your old log-in details and you can also create an alias from the Settings with the new ….@outlook.com address. So, even when mails are sent to your @hotmail.com account, they’ll be redirected to your @outlook.com address.
New users are also welcome to sign up for the @outlook.com address. See for yourself.
