I switched from Gmail to Hotmail NZ a year ago and haven't looked back. I get an average of 1000 spam a day on my Gmail account and I found when I was using it, far too many legit emails got flagged as spam and lost. Hotmail has a much nicer and faster interface and I don't have any spam issues.

As for the new Gmail look... yuck, it is horribly broken in IE9.

to be fair ie9 breaks a lot of websites, I have found so many websites don't work properly, especially online banking sites. It is the worst browser. I use firefox, chrome or opera these days.

TheUngeek: I've been on the new one for a long time, is fine.
Don't understand hotmail > gmail. I find hotmail so unrelaible. and omg the spam!


i check my hotmail virtually every day, and i've never had an outage that i recall.  unlike gmail where i could not access my mail for a couple of days, and then lost the email history for a week...

ajobbins: No option for me on my Google Apps account


I've got it on both my Google Apps accounts (free version) - but I have those accounts to accept the "beta" features from Google.  You may have to enable that.  And from memory you have to be using the English US (not UK) language to get these early releases too.

Under the CPanel....

Domain Settings -> General -> New User Features / New Service Features

But, I have my "New User Features" set to scheduled release so I could be completely wrong with my earlier comment.  Plus I'm using English UK.

Worth checking those settings for your account.  The notification I got was in the bottom right hand corner (I think) - pretty innocuous it was too.
