Hotmail will soon become Deadmail. It’s going away. This summer, Microsoft will gradually transfer Hotmail users to their new Outlook.com email service. That transfer is going to involve 300 million Hotmail users. Click here to read more about what’s going on.
The first email service I ever used was Hotmail. In fact I’m still using it. My Hotmail account has got to be at least 15 years old. A lot of friends have told me I should switch to a better service, but I never found anything wrong with what I was using. Besides, I liked my email address and I’ve had the same password since the beginning. Why try to remember a new password?
Apparently the transition is going to be an easy one and I get to keep that same address and password, so I’m not going to make a big deal out of it, but, Microsoft, I want you to know something. If you weren’t introducing this Outlook.com thing, I never would have switched. I know you don’t care—just telling you.
