Microsoft completes Hotmail migration to Outlook.com

 

The migration of Hotmail accounts to the new Outlook.com has been completed, according to an announcement made by Microsoft today. At present there are over 400 million active accounts on Outlook with 125 million using Exchange ActiveSync to access email, calendar and contacts using a mobile device.

The Redmond software giant added 1.5 million Outlook.com users in less than 24 hours back in February when it formally launched the new email service. Outlook is Microsoft’s replacement for its classic Hotmail email service. The software company has reportedly 300 million Hotmail accounts in six weeks, equal to 150 petabytes of data.

Though Hotmail has the distinction of being a pioneer in web-based email prior to its acquisition by Microsoft in 1997, the service was synonymous with spam for many of its users. Microsoft has announced that it planned to retire Hotmail in favor of Outlook though users are still allowed to keep their Hotmail addresses.

Outlook features the new SMTP send and a better integration with SkyDrive. SMTP send is available worldwide and makes it easier for users to send messages. Integration with SkyDrive allows insertion of files and photos into emails directly from SkyDrive.

Microsoft has announced its plans to improve security for Outlook through implementation of a two-factor login process. Reports also came out this month that Microsoft was eyeing an Outlook release for Windows RT.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
