An excerpt from a review of the latest Hotmail update
But should you really consider reviving your old Hotmail account or opening a new one? I've been using this new version of Hotmail for the past few weeks and I've found it handled large files with ease, performed browser-like tasks within the inbox and integrated third-party social networks and email accounts. Though the Hotmail name still conjures up frustrating memories of too much spam and the belief that storage was restricted, Microsoft has revamped its old email service into one that's smart, robust and reliable. It deserves a second look.
