Say Hello to Outlook.com, New Modern Email from Microsoft
July 31, 2012
Microsoft today introduced Outlook.com, a new personal email service that reimagines the way that people use email – from a cleaner look, to fewer and less obtrusive ads, to new connections to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

REDMOND, Wash. – July 31, 2012 – Outlook.com, Microsoft’s new personal email service that launches in preview form today, offers the first major improvement to cloud mail in eight years, said Chris Jones, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of Windows Live.

“We think the time is right to reimagine personal email, from the datacenter to the user experience,” he said. “So today we’re introducing a preview of Outlook.com.”

Jones said Outlook.com, which builds off the power of the Outlook people have long used on their PCs and Macs, has a fresh, clean user interface that gets the clutter out of inboxes and takes away display ads and large search boxes, and works well with smartphones, tablets, and the new Outlook 2013 Preview.
