Microsoft introduces Windows Live Hotmail worldwide
Posted on 7-May-2007 18:47. | Tags Filed under: News.

Microsoft Corp. is launching Windows Live Hotmail globally in 36 languages. The successor to MSN Hotmail, and deemed by the company as the most significant upgrade for Hotmail since it was first introduced back in, the new service has been built to be a vast improvement over the previous Hotmail offering.

Windows Live Hotmail incorporates input from more than 20 million beta testers and offers flexible access via the Web, on a mobile phone or with an e-mail client.

Microsoft also announced that later this month Windows Live Hotmail customers will be able to access their Windows Live Hotmail e-mail and contacts for free using Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 or Office Outlook 2007 via the new Microsoft Office Outlook Connector beta. Outlook Connector will be available in 11 languages worldwide, with full contact, e-mail and e-mail folder synchronization.

Windows Live Hotmail begins rolling out on 7 May 2007 and continues over the coming days. However users do not have to change anything, and should continue to visit to use their existing accounts or to sign up for a new Windows Live Hotmail account.

Current MSN Hotmail customers can also update their existing account to Windows Live Hotmail by logging into their account and clicking on the green Join Windows Live Hotmail button.

Using Windows Live Hotmail for mobile (, users will be able to access their e-mail when they are on the go on a Web-enabled mobile phone or PDA. In the future, Windows Mobile customers will receive a richer online and offline Windows Live Hotmail experience with Windows Live for Windows Mobile, which will ship with Windows Mobile v6.

The company says that in the coming weeks it will introduce an additional e-mail client option for Windows Live Hotmail with the release of Windows Live Mail beta, a free e-mail client available via download that will be a successor to Outlook Express and Windows Mail on Windows Vista.
