    Soon Hotmail.com will no longer exist, they are going to shut it down.

    Test the new version of Outlook Online out on http://www.outlook.com (where you can also open your hotmail/live account).

    The Hotmail name and service change announcement has upset many people here locally. I don't think MS will close your hotmail.com account rite away. But it will eventually get closed. Business card holders are already raising heck because they have to change their hotmail email address, on the card. It's microsoft; did you really think hotmail would last forever? :eek3:

    For me Hotmail...

    EMail notification (with the MSN or the gtalk plugin) in miranda is nice, but it's a little bit useless for me.
    Why? The problem is not the notification, but what happens after the notification? It open the Mail website, I am not a friend of this sites. It's okay when I am outside or at work, but at home I maybe sort the mails, set reminders or whatever, or in other words, miranda is no email client.
    My EMail client is Outlook 2007. MS have a nice addon for it, it's named "Outlook connector" with this you have Hotmail access and Calendar. (And yes, screen notifications too)

    (Okay for GMail I can enable IMAP, but IMAP+GMail+Outlook, ermm, you know what I mean if you ever tried this)

    Another point is, that I very often visit MS websites, forums, blogs, newsgroups. Most of this sites have an LiveID login and alerts via EMail and Alerts.

    Spam? The spam amount in GMail is much higher.
    Sure the gmail spam folder works great, but you get the mails.
    I assume the server side spamfilter in Hotmail works a little bit better,
    even you don't get spam mails in the spam folder.
    (I know that the MS server blocks some domains)

    Gmail VS Hotmail

    It is undoubtedly Gmail. Because its easy platform enables everyone viewing mail and entire operation regarding mail.

    I use Gmail. It has a lot of options, easy to use, it is transparent and I not receive spam.

    Associated services

    Some users might be unaware that using a Gmail or Hotmail/Live account is about more than just email.

    Access to Google Drive - Which is like a mini, free Office suite and several free Gigabytes of online storage
    Access to special YouTube features
    Access to the Google+ Social Network

    Access to SkyDrive and OfficeOnline - Which are like mini versions of OneNote, Word, Powerpoint, and Excel with free hosting for those files
    Access to Windows Live messenger

    While both services allow for collaborative editing of documents, my vote goes to Google for ease-of-use, greater customization, and more reliable service.

    If you use any Google services, always check out the "Labs" - These are extra features that can be enabled for each service for free.
