Hey there. Im currently thinking about going from 365 personal to Business. When it gets to the "Create your business identity"part, whats making me stop it when im about to purchase it at "me@businessname.com, would my previous email being "me@Karima ben .com"be changed to the new domain name? or will i still be able to use the @Karima ben .com email for logging in to onedrive, and receiving emails in my outlook.

thank you

    Hi @Nik Srpcanski

    Our forum is mainly focused on the general issue of Skype for Business troubleshooting. According to your description, your issue is not in our support scope. The following suggestion is just for your reference.

    To my knowledge, you could choose to add your own domain or the default domain(onmicosoft.com) when going from 365 personal to Business. The following blog show the detailed steps:
