Okay, so either this is some conspiracy on MS's part, they are completely inept, or I am just an idiot today. I am in the process of migrating completely to Outlook.com (see my earlier thread, questioning whether I should do this), and I am stymied by how to bring all of my other e-mail addresses under my primary account's (@outlook.com) umbrella. Up until now, I have had my one Gmail account serving as a focal point for my 5 other firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com addresses (it's a mixture). I check that Gmail account and only that, and I send and receive from the other accounts through Gmail. It's one-stop shopping, and, as far as I'm concerned, it is totally necessary in this day and age. For the migration, I want to stop Gmail from checking these other accounts, and instead I want them all to go directly to my firstname.lastname@example.org. However, when I try to tell Outlook.com to use one of my accounts as a "Send and receive", it balks, suggesting I should try "linking" these accounts instead (which MS has disabled!). I then thought I was supposed to try adding them all as Aliases, but it would let me do that either, stating "This email address is part of a reserved domain such as live.com, hotmail.com, or msn.com. Please enter a different email address." I am exasperated at how hard this is. Fellow Surfacers, please tell me I'm missing something.
