Microsoft has completed its Hotmail to Outlook.com upgrade. There are now over 400 million active accounts. Outlook.com is getting two new features: SMTP send and improved SkyDrive integration.

  • SMTP send allows Outlook.com accounts to send email directly through another email account's SMTP server.
  • The improved SkyDrive integration now means Outlook.com users can compose emails and select SkyDrive photos and files directly from the cloud storage service.

Nice, Outlook is really far better than the old Hotmail.

I wish they didn't retire the hotmail brand, but ah well. Outlook is great. I absolutely love it.

SMTP = Cool, SkyDrive = useless. Dropbox, possibly. Local storage = best.  But that is just me.

I'm still a strict local storage proponent, but as someone who uses multiple devices throughout the day, I absolutely love storing my schoolwork on Skydrive. Two years ago, you would never have got me to say that.

How SkyDrive can be useless when it offers 25 GB of free data storage? :D
