Microsoft announced the launch of Outlook.com, a new email platform that will replace the company's Hotmail.com and Live.com user interfaces in 2013. You can sign up at Outlook.com to get a preview of the service, or if you have a Hotmail or Live account you can upgrade it to the new Outlook.com user interface by going to the "Options" menu and clicking on the "Upgrade to Outlook.com" link.
Microsoft has been working hard over the past few months to build a new email service and they are ready to show off their hard work. The company is announcing a new email platform, Outlook.com, and Microsoft hopes that with a mature sounding domain and a few time-saving features, you will give it a try. The new email service takes a fresh look at the email experience and is changing everything from privacy and workflow, to advertisement placement and attachments to help you get things done faster with less distraction.
