I never chose Outlook. It should technically be considered a downgrade.
I completely agree. I loved Hotmail and I absolutely hate Outlook - what a complete step down.
Pamela; why do you hate outlook? Have you used it? Have you even seen it? Or do you just not like the name?.... Because that's all that's different just the corner logo changed from hotmail to Outlook other than that everything is the same and there is no reason to hate it unless you just simply don't like the name...
This isn't the same outlook program that came bundled with windows 98, it's pretty much just a rebranded hotmail. My oldest email (going on 15 years) is hotmail but it's now the email I use when I sign up to a sites and don't want my main gmail getting any spam. I also opened an outlook.com account when it was released but gmail is still the best email IMO.
If it's completely the same, then why would they bother changing anything? I'm really tired of new Microsoft interfaces, auto-formatting, and "enhancements". Every metro app I've tried has been completely neutered and offered zero functionality. And then there's all these cloud apps, which are completely and utterly useless in the absence of internet, and performance is throttled based on bandwidth and network responsiveness. I don't want to save my documents on Microsoft's network. I've already seen how great their security is, and am thoroughly unimpressed.
Everything about Microsoft is pure crap the services the software are bad and suck
Dominic; because it's a company trying to make profit? because competition has become stiff? because they are losing active accounts? because they wanted a rebranded old name to bring to the table alongside windows8? because outlook has always been considered the professional MS email while Hotmail was for teeny boppers. Can you tell me how they are different? Have you actually used both? Having had logged onto Hotmail and outlook side by side I saw no difference so I kept funneling my spam email to the Hotmail address and haven't used the outlook since but only because they are the same.
