For old users hotmail has always been the preferred portal for electronic mail messaging, it has been participating for many years in all the work we have to do, as well as to simplify our lives, making the activities more comfortable and simple.
at first it was considered that outlook took the position of hotmail, but it is not true, outlook is a service that was integrated into the hotmail system to work with several domains such as @hotmail or @live; it’s an add-on they did to capture the attention of new users and add new options in addition to increasing storage space in the cloud; without mention having a new interface.
Many people have doubts that it happens if their emails were hotmail and now I’m going to be outlook, in this article we will clear several of the doubts mentioned with hotmail and outlook.
My account will be deleted if I had hotmail as a domain before?
No. Outlook is a new email service in the cloud. We have learned a lot from the more than 15 years of operation of Hotmail, although this is a totally new service. The account will remain fully operational, as long as you use the account regularly, many people have lost the account due to carelessness or password problems, however, new users have had no problems with getting used to the outlook style.
Outlook is striking, it is fast and the best thing is that you select or give priority to the most recent conversations ordering spam emails and those that are advertisements that give information about the products or services of pages to which you subscribed.
Your account will not disappear. For now, Hotmail will continue to work for people who use it. Hotmail users can upgrade to Outlook.com and get a new experience, but will continue to receive and send messages from their @ hotmail.com account. This is a great relief because we know how tedious it is to start adding your contacts after you had years collecting the most mail from your family, friends and co-workers.
I’m afraid of losing my contacts
You do not have to be afraid because ALL your information will be available in the new Outlook.com interface. You will not lose any of your emails, contacts or appointments on your calendar. The classification of inbox folders, message categories and other organization rules is also maintained. You do not need to do any extra step, when you enter Outlook.com your previous information about Hotmail is kept.
The category of message is very important because we always have important emails sorting; outlook retrieves them in an instantaneous way until it allows you to assign a color to make it easier to find it.
I’m not pleased with the new outlook
Getting used to an account or a new visualization is not an easy task, if for some reason you do not like the way outlook organized your documents or you just do not find the folders, having the annoying task of asking for help from others when you first did everything you can only have hotmail again this way.
- Click on the configuration icon (a gear) next to your name in the upper right corner.
- In the menu that is displayed, the option “Return to Hotmail” appears, click and go.
As you noted, there is no problem but you get used to using outlook with maximum efficiency you can return to the hotmail without any problem and no inconvenience. The folders are still the same, as well as your important emails and the other saved files.
A good reception
Outlook the new mail service with which Microsoft will replace Hotmail, reached the record of one million subscribers. As announced by the company on its own Twitter account, the Hotmail change has been received with good reviews thanks to the fact that new interface is more agile, cleaner and is more integrated to social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn.
Hotmail is one of the oldest management platforms for emails Launched in 1996; the service gave the first email address electronic for many of the most active users in the network today. Current users can keep their address @ hotmail.com but it will be inside the Outlook.com platform. Just click on “Upgrade to Outlook” in the account settings to evolve your service but you can return to your traditional Hotmail service whenever you want.
Since we have use of reason, we have remembered that the domains for emails was always hotmail, very few used the Gmail messaging because it was not as personal as it is hotmail, but fortunately outlook, I get to capture better audience in the users to work with. Have not had bad comments so far, in fact in recent surveys it has been seen that the results have been optimal from the old and new hotmail users.
Outlook has a better interface than hotmail
As many sites point out, the new image of Outlook is much cleaner, very much like what is seen in Windows Phone. It also offers customization options for color and font to your liking. It offers a more simplified toolbar that display options once you select a message. In addition, it maintains its traditional folders.
Has the old style of hotmail but also has new features to be more useful with the different activities we use, some use it as an event organizer or upcoming appointments and others to get in touch with friends far away.
The Outlook service improved the interface in every way, now the color you can see is blue (you can change color) and also made the options are more present and visible at the time of use. The Hotmail service had a very confusing and not at all colorful interface. The color that was shown was the orange and this made the emails could not be observed correctly, it’s a good advance to be able to change these imperfections.
No more ads
One of the main problems with the mail messaging is that they filled almost 40% of our ad screen or there would be pop-ups suddenly to advertise anything, it was very annoying, but no more with outlook, practically these problems were left back thanks to block all these ads, so you’ll only see what you’re really looking for.
To date commercial banners were part of the forced viewing of Hotmail, something that Gmail lacks and with what it managed to attract many adepts. Now the ads that they look in your tray will be according to the personal data of each user. Microsoft imitates the text ads that appear in the Google results and will only appear in official emails, such as those from a bank or a newsletter to which you have subscribed.
I am not trying to be a comparative person, but outlook has certain competencies with the other messaging services, this is why you always have to be aware of the new updates to continue to occupy the first positions being one of the favorites in the whole world. When an ad interests you, it will only suffice to pass the mouse over to display a pop up ad. And if you have a Hotmail Plus account you will never receive ads with your emails.
Keep in contact with everything and everyone
In fact, when you open your inbox the service pulls the most recent tweets or status updates from your contacts and writing a message displays a list of frequent contacts with your Facebook photos. For its part, LinkedIn announced that thanks to an agreement with Microsoft, users of this network will be able to access the social information of your service through Outlook.
We all know that social networks work with emails (very few have been used to place your phone number to avoid ending up in the wrong hands), which is why it will be easier to place your email to log in social networks like facebook, instagram, snapchat, among others.
Another thing that most likely is that you do not know is that you can search your friends, family or acquaintances using emails in social networks, very little is used but if you do not know the username that your friends or the person you are using Looking with having or knowing the email will be very easy, another point to outlook.
More tools to make life easier
One of the great successes of this service is the integration you have with the Skype video conferencing service that lets you start conversations from the inbox. It has been released for a while but it is still a tool that very few know, so take the opportunity to use it to its full potential.
Outlook luckily improved much the operation and now the drops of the electronic mail are almost null. To be able to understand the email in a better way and not have any kind of problem when making use of these functions that Outlook provides, what can be done so that the process is not so difficult is to compare the two emails to see which are the difference that have been made from one mail to the other.
