Migration is performed without user participation. Each account can keep your files and contacts. Look at the advantages of the new service.
Hotmail to Outlook.com email
Microsoft launches today the migration of 300 million email accounts for new mail hotmail.com to the multinational Outlook.com. and expected to be completed this summer change, said Rafael Rios, product marketing manager at Microsoft.
Spain is among the countries with the largest number of accounts as it has about 14 million users.
The change is made without involving Microsoft users so that one day they will find the new interface that defines the multinational as “clean and intuitive” and will continue to send your mail at the same Hotmail account with now (Outlook pointing their guns into Gmail).
However, Internet users may wish to rename outlook hotmail account and still receive messages sent to the old name, Rios said.
Advantages. Among the advantages of Outlook.com face Hotmail emails are scheduled cleaning, ease unsubscribe from a newsletter, photo viewing and online content, and very easily to use with touchscreen capabilities.
Microsoft opened its new service in testing email Outlook.com the last day of July and already has 60 million users of which a third are also Gmail users as noted Rios who explained his success by being a service designed “from the beginning”, according to user needs.
Integration. The change comes from the new Microsoft policy to unify their services that integrates with Skype messaging (click Here), storage and email SkypeDrive brand in Outlook.
The change is to be performed by servers, not so countries and expect to be done without any hassle for the user who may have the service online customer service, as usual.
In the new email advertising is removed the “banner” and no talks are used to send users related advertising but if the update of the contacts that are on Facebook or Twitter.
Very soon will integrate Skype voice service in the new post.
The new Outlook.com comes to replace Hotmail. You can not open an email account through Hotmail.com, but those who have spent years using this postal service can continue with it since the passage of firstname.lastname@example.org to @outlook.com is, for now, optional. Microsoft has not set a date for removing definitely Hotmail, and is expected to disappear gradually and progressively. The strategy seems to be right: in its first day of life Outlook.com recorded six million new users and is estimated to have grown since then at a rate of one million new accounts daily. Of course it is not entirely new accounts: many of them correspond to users who have chosen to leave behind migrating your old Hotmail account to Outlook.com.
As noted above, this transfer is not required at this time. Microsoft offers its users the opportunity to continue using your normal Hotmail account, and even allows users who have migrated your account to “Outlook.com” return to your previous mail domain. The most resistant to change can learn this new version of mail through your trial. To do this, simply sign in with your old username and password for Hotmail in www.outlook.com.
Alternatively, to test the benefits of the new Outlook.com is through Gmail. The email service from Google offers the possibility of setting tab select an alternate email address for sending messages. Entering our Hotmail address, we may receive through the renewed Outlook.com Inbox every email we receive in our Gmail account.
The new Inbox, one of the stars of the new Outlook.com really seems designed to convince any fan of Hotmail moving to the new mail option. The reasons? A friendlier interface without advertising messages, an organization under the Metro system that streamlines tile work and shows up to 30% more messages, and a head cleaner and fluid with 60% fewer pixels than Hotmail .
Another point to note is that the trial is just that: a first attempt to implement this service you will surely be adding new and improved features over the course of the coming months.
For now, Outlook.com is here and prove it is so simple that there are no excuses not to. The experience is worth it.
