is changing it's name to Outlook.com
I use it because: I've had the address since around 2000; it syncs to my iphone; it's got all the features I need. It was slow to catch up with features like flagging, but it's got them now. I don't get why people are so down on it.
but surely you suffer from the same thing as me, that when you registered it yo were a stupid teenager and therefore it has an awfully embarrassing id? I use mine for spammy stuff now.
Which is the main reason I still use it. With such a common name as mine, it's hard to get without numbers in now.
which is pretty great.
The only thing I don't like about Hotmail is that it sometimes feels a bit unresponsive
Also really annoying that when you read your emails and delete accordingly on an iphone it doesn't reflect the changes in Hotmail thus regularly have a ton of unread emails waiting for deletion or saving
Send emails to Junk if subject contains Payday
Send emails to Junk if subject contains work from home
It's really enjoyable
it's been holding me back for years
What's wrong with it?
it's the Post Office and The Spastic Society
Gmail for sending CVs / PayPal / Trainline / most personal correspondence / stuff that is important and/or I actually want to read
Hotmail for mailing lists, restaurant vouchers, website notifications, all the other trash
This system works perfectly.
Yeah, apart from that, perfect.
the launch of Outlook.com means you can register a new account and, if you're quick, you can get whatever account name you want.
It feels really cleannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
