Microsoft Cuts Ties With Hotmail

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.
