Microsoft released a preview to their new webmail product, Outlook, which will eventually replace their Hotmail service. The new cleaner looking service does not have ads in the personal email.
Social media connections integrate allowing the user to see what their connections are posting and interact with them via Outlook. Slated for a future release, Skype integration allows the user to make calls from within Outlook.
Realizing newsletters make-up a majority of email, Outlook includes ways to filter and unsubscribe to newsletters.
You can claim your new email address now by signing-up for the preview of Outlook.com.
