Microsoft is parting ways with Hotmail.
Over the next few months, the tech giant will invite Hotmail users to test a new web-based version of Outlook.
Existing users will be able to keep their Hotmail addresses, but new users will have to choose an Outlook domain.
Hotmail was created in 19-96.
It isn't as modern as other, newer e-mail services.
According to Microsoft, the new Outlook e-mail system has a cleaner interface, and has social aspects built in.
Users of the new Outlook can connect their e-mail addresses with Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, and Twitter contacts.
Eventually, all Hotmail users will be forced to switch e-mail systems.
But Microsoft has not set a firm deadline.
