Better and Faster Hotmail


Contact Us

Hotmail based on Customer Feedback has come up with certain changes. The most immediate change will be how the inbox looks. The inbox has been streamlined and its performance has been improved, creating a faster and better Hotmail. 

It'll be up to 70 percent faster to sign in and see your e-mail. Of course, along with more speed, you'll get powerful technology that deflects spam and helps protect you against viruses and scams.

The classic and full versions of Hotmail are being combined, so you get access to everything Hotmail has to offer. The reading pane will let you check out your e-mail without having to open it up. 

New themes and colours will let you design the look of your inbox, so your personality can really shine through. 

Just start typing in the "To" line and you'll get a choice of e-mail contacts that most closely match what you've typed. Plus, it'll be even easier to e-mail groups of people.

Even more great updates like ever-increasing storage, the ability to IM right from Hotmail, and new calendar features that make it easier to share your calendar with family and friends will be coming shortly.

1. Based on Microsoft tests performed July 2008, Hotmail showed up to 70% greater speed for the following transactions over broadband connections: sign in, view e-mail, open e-mail. On narrowband connections, the tests showed up to 56% greater speed for the same transactions.
2. Hotmail storage will automatically grow with you. That means the more storage you need, the more storage you'll get. There are limits, but they're so large that chances are you won't even come close to them. If, for some reason, you're coming close to exceeding those limits, we'll send you an e-mail to let you know.
