Microsoft Introduces Outlook.com

Microsoft has launched a preview of a new web-based email service, Outlook.com - and it's rather nice. This separate from the Outlook App, but is rather a replacement for the aging Hotmail - which, notwithstanding a bit of freshening up in recent years, is known more for voluminous spam that anything else. You can sign into Outlook.com with your Windows Live ID (or as they are now calling it, your "Microsoft Account"), or you can create a new account - no invitations needed.

To handle all of your attachments, Outlook.com gives each user 7GB of SkyDrive storage. Every file you send in an email gets stored on SkyDrive, and appears in the mail as a preview, with a link to the full version, addressing the problem of attachment size limits.
