Microsoft users say goodbye to Hotmail, hello to new Outlook.com

Washington: Microsoft has announced that its new webmail service, Outlook.com, is now set to replace Hotmail.com.

The software giant said that Outlook.com is coming out of beta testing and is now ready for primetime.

The service, which was announced last July, now has 60 million users and will now replace Microsoft’s older webmail system.

Microsoft’s Hotmail, which was originally MSN Hotmail, has been online since 1997.

Hotmail users will still keep their Hotmail.com email addresses and their contacts and emails will all be moved over, they will just now get a new user interface and all the new features of Outlook.com, ABC News reports.

According to the report, Outlook.com was designed with a similar aesthetic to Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system.

It also includes new social features and a sorting option called Sweep, the report said.

The Sweep feature moves newsletters, promotional messages and other recurring emails into their own folders or to the trash, it added.
