Outlook.com is awesome. It is super-fast with hyper-advanced features that sort of make Yahoo!, Gmail, and AOL a great fit for your grandparents, but not you. Not tech-savvy you. What’s better is Outlook.com is free. Now you get an awesome web, comprehensive Office Outlook integration, Xbox integration, Windows Phone integration, and Microsoft Account integration for nothing.
To be completely open, Outlook.com is Microsoft’s attempt to shed that Hotmail vibe. Though Hotmail was great, people started to see Hotmail like Gmail and AOL. Perception is reality, after all. To some, Hotmail looked less professional to send your resume from – solely based on the domain. Enter Outlook.com. A new email domain that ships with a wholly updated backend service.
