Microsoft's Outlook.com Email Service: Have You Tried It? by ektbear: 8:13am On Aug 03, 2012
I registered an account (mostly just to get a prime email address grin )

I was pleasantly surprised, the user interface is nice.

Anybody else registered/tried it? www.outlook.com

The UI is nice, quite alright. Beautiful, really, and flush with Metro. But try editing your profile and it takes you to that god-awful, butt-ugly ho*m*il interface. MS should please, as a matter of utmost urgency, do something about that.

I logged into my hotmail acccount some day back and it was nice. They're learning from Gmail. Thumbs up Gmail for setting the pace.

Its still a "preview". Surely when its kicks off officially, that would be handled.

There have speculations that Microsoft is still up to something. Normally, certain key addresses like donotreply@outlook.com should be reserved, but they didn't!!! It was grabbed by a user within hours of preview launch.

Learning from Gmail? Maybe, but they surely put more juice into it. It samples features not yet mainstream in any other mail service.

Google just overtook Hotmail as the largest webmail, which isn't unrelated to the rise in adoption of Android phones/tablets which needs a google account to access the application store, Google Play. Do the math, estimated 400million+ android phones worldwide!

Don't get me wrong though, Gmail rocks and is/has been my preferred mail service for years now...but I like trying out new and shiny things! grin

I hope they will also offer the like of Google Apps for Business, where companies can host their email. They will drive a lot of companies especially if their price is lower than Google's own per user. Google is currently giving 25GB per user at $50 per year, a company of 100 employees will pay $5000 every year for their employees' email service.

Outlook looks sleek and loads faster than Live, but it still has to take you to Live when editing your profile. I think they will transfer the interface of Live to look as Outlook is now. My only suggestion would have been to retain the live and add additional email offerings like the way Yahoo added Rocketmail and Ymail, they should have just made Live look better, then offer @Hotmail @Live @Outlook @MSN. This would have been better in my opinion.
