One million people signed up for the new email service in just six hours. It have to be something big! And it is . Say hello to Microsoft's new free email account, Outlook.com [...].
No it is not the cloud version of your (non used for most of us) Outlook PC email Clint But it is all new Email Service from Microsoft, designed as an eventual replacement to Hotmail, (for now it is a it’s opt-in for existing Hotmail users) the free browser-based service sports a strikingly simple interface.
It's not often we get a shakeup in the email world, If happens it’s mostly with Gmail, With its new Outlook.com e-mail, though Microsoft is trying to change that perception. And by most measures it succeeds. Not only it does look good, it seems pretty fast too.
It is so good that after testing it for 3 days i will defiantly say that Outlook.com is the most awesome Email service now in the web world. Yes i know there is a huge Gmail fans out there even I have been using Gmail since 2005, but the new Outlook.com service looks extremely tempting both in terms of features and also the user-interface. I am sure that you will also agree to me if you try it.
What makes Outlook.com awesome
Top reason for switching to Outlook.com
Not only it does look good, it seems pretty fast too
Though Microsoft is calling Outlook.com a preview version, it has been pretty stable for me. Microsoft is making its most radical change yet to the 16-year-old email service.
Integration with social networks
This is useful when you are logging from a public computer. Gmail has two-step verification which adds one more layer of security.
Or if you are a Hotmail/Windows live user Just click on Update to outlook.com and you are done.
Storage Space! No problem here
The maximum size of an email message (including attachments) that you can receive in Outlook is 25 MB which is similar to Gmail.
Get the Outlook.com Email Address You Want
Hotmail and now Outlook, lets you create temporary email aliases that are just regular email addresses but you can delete them or create new ones whenever required. You can also rename an existing alias without deleting. you can select just five Outlook aliases a year (an anti-spam and anti-hoarding restriction),
If you are a hotmail user you might think that Microsoft would automatically reserve that address for your outlook.com, but it doesn’t. You have to do that yourself. to do this open Outlook Mail Settings and choose Create an Alias under Managing your Account.
And there is more improved features in managing emails,Easily Recover your Deleted Mails,Use of Use HTML and CSS in Rich Emails,Block Emails from Particular Addresses or Domains
All of this makes Outlook.com the awesome email service. If you try it I am sure that you will also agree to me ,Don't you ? If users are to have any issues, it’ll probably be with the Outlook name. The brand generates a lot of bad blood among users. At least in this case, things get better on the other side.
Update : As expected SkyDrive Also got a makeover, just like Outlook. The new “modern design” and it looks great and beautiful.
