    Regarding this All-New 2010 Hotmail…
    1.- I don’t like the new eenie-meenie-tiny-smaller font; I have to keep zooming with the IE Zoom in order to try to read the different subjects in my inbox or junk folder, and my computer runs with Windows 7 on IE8 with a 1360×768 screen resolution on a 32″ inches 16:9 ratio, LCD-Full HD, LG screen!
    2.- Once you select over 10 junk mails and trying to mark those as “Phishing Scam” for a quick deleting, it keeps coming with an error message over and over and not deleting any!
    Then you just have to manually delete each one separately consuming my time and patience!
    My Junk folder keeps clogged because I receive over 50 junk mails per day!!
    3.- Once I try to read a message in my Inbox it starts showing previous or future replied messages instead of the one that I ACTUALLY want to read!
    It’s very confusing and tiresome to check all those different messages and dates that comes up at once when you’ve been exchanging comunication with those emails with another user!
    4.- On and on I still LOVE the Yahoo! Mail because it allows me to open each separate letter in a different tab -Inside the same IE tab that I’m already in my Yahoo! mail- for a quick check of different emails from different contacts, dates and conversations instead of just one SINGLE window as in Hotmail!
    When I try to do that in Hotmail: I have to keep opening NEW IE windows for checking the “Sent Folder” for a different email and date while opening ANOTHER different IE window for trying to type a new message or actually checking another mail in the “Inbox Folder”!
    It kills time and it’s far from the versatility of Yahoo! Mail multiple tabs in the SAME single window!!
    5.- I’m aware Hotmail is shifting gears, but it’s really annoying when some times you try to log off from your Hotmail account for someone else to try to check his Hotmail account: It only keeps popping the previous account on the LAST letter you just read!
    No matter if you close that tab and wait for a while or even try to open an entirely new window; Hotmail keeps doing that: Showing the last letter you’ve read when you already log off!!
    Hopefully this could be read by any Hotmail Guru at Almighty Windows!!
    Thank you!

    It was in the year 2004 when Google officially released ‘Invite only’ Gmail service(Beta), an email service by Google, which offered more memory…

    More memory you say?

    I was still at University/college in 1993 and seem to remember my friend showing me hotmail so 1996 seems bit late to me as date hotmail was launched.

    Maybe it was under prototype for a few years and once they knew it was going to be a hit it was launched commercially.

  10. 10


    what i mean is, did it not exist in 1993?
