Free Hotmail - Outlook Integration Going Away
Miscrosoft is frantically revamping Hotmail in an attempt to retain users who may be lured by Gmail. The upgraded Hotmail is slowly being released, but Microsoft is taking away one feature: Free access of your Hotmail account from Outlook and Outlook Express. That is quite a shame, especially since it means users can no longer use Outlook to export Hotmail contacts, as many have in the past. I can't blame Microsoft for doing it. It goes against their strategy of integrating products into Windows, but it is still a premium feature. Paid users will still be able to use Outlook.
