A New Outlook on Mail

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Just recently Microsoft has been testing a new mail service called Outlook.com. Not to be confused with Microsoft Outlook, Outlook.com is a brand new email service created to eventually replace Microsoft’s dated email service Hotmail. Hotmail has sort of earned itself the reputation for being ad-filled, slow, and hard to navigate. Microsoft wanted to create a new email service that focused more on messages themselves and the overall design of the website. With a more intuitive look and cleaner layout, Microsoft would like to steal the thunder from Google’s email service; Gmail.

If you have an existing Microsoft Hotmail or Live account, you can log into it right now and check it out. I was able to jump in with my existing Live account and see what all the buzz was about. You are also welcome to make a completely new account using the @Outlook.com domain if you’d like. Some of the great features of Outlook.com are the integration with social websites and apps like Facebook and Skype.

Microsoft’s plan is to eventually wipe out Hotmail and Live mail. If you currently have either a Hotmail or Live mail account, don’t worry, you’ll eventually be able to pull all your contact and emails over and keep your email as well. If you’re ready to give it a try, head on over to outlook.com and check it out!
