Microsoft Reboots Hotmail as Outlook.com
« on: August 01, 2012, 09:51:37 AM »

Hotmail is going cold, at least as a brand.

Microsoft Corp. is phasing out the email service, a pioneer of electronic mail accessed on the Web, in favor of a new-but-old brand: Outlook.

The company said Tuesday it is converting Hotmail, which competes with Google Inc.'s Gmail and email services from Apple Inc. and Yahoo Inc. into a revamped Web-based email service called Outlook.com, mirroring the name of Microsoft's dominant line of workplace email software.

Microsoft said an interim "preview" period—whose length has not been determined—for Outlook.com began for U.S. users Tuesday. The service, which will continue to be free, will eventually be available world-wide.

Like the current Hotmail, Outlook.com allows people to access a free, stripped-down version of Microsoft's Office.
