Mr. Drums has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Yes, the ID I use to sign onto the MacBook is actually my hotmail account. Before I got the MacBook, that hotmail account was what I used to set up iTunes. During the setup process, it said to just use my iTunes account as my Apple ID, so I did. Before I caught it, that email account also became the name of my Home Folder, and I have read you really should not change this.

So, until 2 days ago, I have been able to use Apple Mail to access Hotmail, not suddenly I cannot. For that reason, I was thinking of getting a GMail account and using that as my Apple ID. I guess my question is, will doing that effect how I log onto the MacBook, or will it effect the Home Folder in any way. This may be a silly question - just a bit confused at the moment. Thanks.
