Over 300 million people used Hotmail prior to the transition. Microsoft transitioned the addresses to Outlook.com over a six-week period in 2013, a transfer of 150 million gigabytes of data. Existing Hotmail users could choose to wait for an automatic transition to Outlook.com or move immediately to the new service. Existing users were able to keep their Hotmail.com, Live.com and MSN.com email addresses after the transition.
