This may be old news, but I've just discovered that Hotmail.com has a whole new interface.

I have been not using my hotmail.com account for years, due to the spam. I've my hotmail.com account since 2006 I think.

The new interface makes it a lot easier to use, either on the computer, tabled or phone, but maybe the most important thing, is that you can switch from @hotmail.com to @outlook.com, with two options for your old account.

  • You can have it as an alias, and still get email sent to your old account
  • Completely eliminate it, and start all new with your clean and new inbox.

If you go with the first option, you have once again two options.

  • You can get all email sent to your old address, in your new inbox.
  • You can create a folder where all email sent to your old address will be put.

I've decided to retain my old address, and create a new folder for all the emails sent to my old address.

I'll start communicating my friends my new email, and later delete the alias. I'm so happy I'll be able to eliminate spam from my old hotmail account.

One think I would like to see is, better reconciliation between MS accounts and Blackberries phones. But, nobody is perfect right?
