Take a preview spin of Microsoft's next generation email service, complete with redesigned Metro UI-style looks and sleek features.
Outlook.com connects to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, and soon, Skype, to bring relevant context and communications to your email. In the Outlook.com inbox, your email comes alive with photos, status updates, and Tweets that your friends share with you. There is also the ability to chat and video call--powered by a current contact list connected to your social networks. With Outlook.com, you control your e-mail and social-network experience completely--the information you share, the networks you connect, and the content you see.
Outlook.com automatically sorts your messages from contacts, newsletters, shipping updates, and social updates. "Sweep" features let you move, delete and set up powerful rules in a few, simple clicks to quickly get the email you really want. Outlook.com provides virtually unlimited e-mail storage, spam protection, and account protection powered by your Microsoft account. Outlook.com is also integrated with the Outlook desktop application.
Once you're using Outlook.com, you can also set it up on your phone (Windows Phone, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, or other phone), tablet (Windows 8, iPad, and Android), in the new Outlook 2013 Preview, or in other mail apps you might use. And because Outlook.com supports Exchange ActiveSync, you can set it up just like you would your Exchange or Hotmail account.
