Hi all,

This week's poll is about Microsoft's just announced Hotmail replacement called Outlook.com. Discuss here if you think this service will get some traction, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

Too early to tell really. But I would say that unless Hotmail/Outlook.com starts supporting IMAP it is going to be increasingly sidelined.

I have no adverts in https://bay002.mail.live.com

Interesting when click on the down arrow next to OUTLOOK the sub menu is in the style of "Metro Tiles"

Looks like we will have to live with tiled menus in the future.............

ARM Devices the future. Windows have accepted the fact!

Given Outlook's reputation as a virus delivery client, I don't think I'll be inclined to switch.

Yep, even the Microsoft Support website is starting to look like Metro. I like the concept in outlook.com of hiding the links to other sections, it makes the interface less cluttered.

Both of the above are TERRIBLE e-mail clients.

I don't think they're that bad. I like having the web-based Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps. I also like the integrated storage.
