Yep that’s right, Microsoft is planning a re-design of their free email service. Microsoft has been looking at many of their services and last week we saw the preview of the new Outlook.com. Webmail was first introduced with “HoTMaiL”. in 1996 and these days email is becoming less and less useful as inboxes seem to be inundated with newsletter and social updates and people using social networks to stay in touch with friends. The new system has 30% more messages visible in your inbox than the webmail, no display ads or large search boxes that take up extra space. Outlook.com also uses Exchange active Sync to power your email and calendar, making peoples experience on their smartphone tablets more exciting. Hotmail was one of the first free web-based email services, and was founded by Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith and launched in July 1996 as “HoTMaiL”. It was acquired by Microsoft in 1997 for an estimated $400 million, and shortly after, it was rebranded as “MSN Hotmail”.
