Goodbye Hotmail, Hello Outlook

One of Directions Training’s Microsoft Office training experts wanted you to know…

If you’re one of 300 million people using Hotmail.com, it’s time to say goodbye and hello to Outlook.com. Microsoft has announced that Outlook.com will phase out Hotmail, but it will be a gradual process. First affected will be the most active Hotmail users. However, by the summer of 2013, all users will be migrated over.

Benefits of moving from Hotmail to Outlook:

  • Ability to keep your Hotmail.com, live.com or MSN.com email address
  • Fresh new look and cleaner interface
  • Social integration with Twitter and Facebook

This new design more closely aligns to the look and feel of the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system. Overall, Microsoft’s main goal is to have all products and services embrace the cloud.

In the end, Directions Training believes customers will like the change and additional options that Outlook.com has to offer.
