Windows Live's Hotmail is a simple way to get a free email address that is accessible from anywhere. Hotmail has the advantage of being free, fast, seldom out of service, and it comes equipped with some great features, including a proven anti-spam system, and robust anti-virus and anti-phishing features. In addition, your Windows Live ID can be used to access Skype, Xbox Live, or any online service offered by a Microsoft (network NET Passport Network) account. If you are wondering what happened to Hotmail emails, look no further. As of February 2013, Microsoft accounts have been upgraded to the new Outlook interface. All Hotmail accounts are now accessible via https://login.live.com/.
