Microsoft Revamps Hotmail

Hotmail was one of the first email services that I used and I eventually stopped using it when Google introduced its fabulous Gmail. Hotmail just got so outdated because Microsoft did not give it the massive makeover it needed.

Microsoft has recently revamped Hotmail, bringing it up to speed with other online email services like Gmail or Yahoo. It stopped trying to rebrand Hotmail as Live—the page still says Windows Live, but the Hotmail logo is there as well.

Microsoft also introduced many new features to Hotmail, including Sweep. Sweep allows users to select a message or group of messages and apply an action to them, such as moving them to a folder. The most interesting aspect of Sweep is that it can apply an action to messages that arrive in the future. Sweep works very quickly and efficiently, allowing users to tidy up their inboxes more effectively.
