Say Goodbye to Hotmail, Hello, and welcome to Outlook

Microsoft is renaming its Hotmail email service as Outlook.com. Hotmail was launched in 1996 by Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith and acquired by Microsoft in 1997 for an estimated $400 million. Hotmail was still the world's largest email service with 324 million users 

Outlook.com was built to help you get more done by integrating the information from social networks your friends already use. Office and SkyDrive are built right in, and we get the Greymail out of your way so you can get through your email fast.

A modern interface: faster and cleaner

The simple, fluid and interactive design of Outlook makes it easy to use whether you're on a desktop, phone or tablet.
