MSN Hotmail is an email service powered by Microsoft. Getting an email address is free and can be done in a couple of minutes. It only requires that you sign up for a Windows Live ID. This ID will be used as your email address and identification for other MSN-related services.
Go to Hotmail.com.
Click the small, blue "Sign Up" button on the left side of the window.
Enter a potential email address, which will be considered your Windows Live ID, and password. You can check to see if your email address/Windows Live ID name is still available by clicking the "Check Availability" button.
Enter personal details such as your name, state, gender and birth year.
Read and accept the "Microsoft Service Agreement" and "Privacy Statement." If you do not agree to these terms, you will not be able to get a Hotmail account.
