Re: [OFF-TOPIC] - Say goodbye to Hotmail and Livemail
- I've been playing with it for the past two days. It looks nice indeed. The webmail has nice features, most of which were available in Hotmail.
However I have to say I fell in love with the photo and attachment search built-in Yahoo! :)
What I like in Outlook.com this the minimalist header. I can't get rid of the big Yahoo! header, even when playing with AdBlock. I hate the message list in Outlook/Hotmail though. I like having the preview pane on the right side and Yahoo's implementation is much better for you don' have to scroll et tens of pages.
Also I love Yahoo's powerful search engine... I know there are several complaints but it's working perfectly for me with nice filtering on the fly.
Finally Microsoft did a good thing introducing labels/categories. I'm starting to hate my Yahoo! folders and the various rules I created years ago. It makes me click several times to see all my unead messages when I'm used to have a full list in my inbox and a background organization with labels

Still in sort of beta, so waiting for genuine killer features to be unveiled. Personally I'm very attracted by use of Skydrive & Web Office for attachments.
