    Nice, looks much better than the old Hotmail.

    I somehow knew that you would.

    IT'S JUST SO COOL!
    For somebody like me, I'm quite committed at this point with my emails. After years of going from ISP to ISP and having to deal with email changes, I finally saw the light and went with my own registered domain and mail via gmail.com on my own personal domain. Everything is now setup and working, all sites are registered. It's just way too much effort at this point to change again to anything else.

    Switching over only takes two clicks, upper right to Options then to upgrade. Different interface but no big deal.

    The metro UI is certainly better than the old look.

    Hi there
    Works fine -- even though I'm not a metro lover.

    What I use this for is whenever I buy anything from amazon etc -- I route all the follow up irritating emails like --please buy this as you bought that" to this "junk" account and just delete most of the emails without even looking at them.

    I like Amazon etc -- but I DON'T want to get plastered with spam just because I bought something on amazon.com. These type of commercials just make the whole online buying process rediculous -- anyway with a JUNK email account I don't have to bother with this stuff anymore.

    Incidentally the email address is still user@hotmail.com so I don't think there's mega changes to how it externally works --link to Outlook is fine though.

    Cheers

    Having an @outlook.com domain is cool.....

    How the heck do you get another outlook address, if you already have a live login?

    I want to create a new outlook address for my wife, before her desired addresses run short. Everything I try brings me back to my live address, or the option for an "alias" which I do not want. (She has never had a hotmail, or "live" address/login)

    It looks bloated, compared to Outlook in Office 2010.

    Visit outlook.com, log out from the previous account, and visit outlook.com again. Create completely new account. That's how I did it.

    Tks for the response. Unfortunately it doesn't do the trick. When I select outlook.com, I am already logged back in again!
