Microsoft has announced the official launch of “world’s best email experience”, Outlook.com. It’s been just over 6 months since the Outlook.com preview released and over 60 million people already actively using Outlook.com.
Using the modern email, millions of people are connecting Outlook.com to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to keep up-to-date on their friends’ contact info, updates, photos, and Tweets.
The mail service comes with Sweep, a simple but powerful feature that helps people clear out their inbox by moving, archiving, or deleting specific email (and having this happen automatically in the future, if they want).
“When we say that we’re confident Outlook.com is the best email choice for consumers, we mean it. As Outlook.com comes out of preview, we’re also announcing that we will soon upgrade every Hotmail user to Outlook.com. The upgrade is seamless and instant for people who use Hotmail. Everything from their @hotmail.com email address, password, messages, folders, contacts, rules, vacation replies, etc. will stay the same, with no disruption in service. When upgraded, they’ll also get all the benefits from the redesigned Outlook.com experience–a fresh and intuitive user interface, lots of new features and better performance. And we won’t ever make you switch your email address to an @outlook.com address if you don’t want to,” claims the blog.
