You can set up aliases in outlook.com and then set one of the aliases to be the main address, that way you'll still end up receiving any email directed to the original address. I think they let you make 5 per year or something like that.

From the Outlook.com site

 

An alias is an additional email address for your Microsoft account. It uses the same inbox, contact list, and account settings as the primary alias. You can sign in to your account with any alias—they all use the same password. You can send email from an alias whether you’re using a mail app like Outlook or a device such as a phone.

 

An alias is also the best way to change your email, but keep all your mail. Add an alias, then make the new alias primary. Then you can keep or remove the original alias. If you have a @hotmail.com, @live.com, or @MSN.com email address and would like to add a new email address, the best way is to add an alias.

I would create a new one then make it the primary and then delete the old one

I would also use outllook.co.nz rather than outlook.com as it could be more difficult to find a new name you like with outlook.com

Spend $25 per year on a domain name, then free Office 365 email for non-profit. Assuming church is a registered charity / NFP org.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Yes.

Setup an alias.

You can also make the alias your Outlook login. In effect renaming your main email address.
