Hotmail is a free messaging service launched in 1995, which was acquired by Microsoft two years later. In the early 2000s, Hotmail was one of the most popular webmails. In 2012, Hotmail was replaced by Outlook to improve the user experience. To properly manage your messages on Hotmail/Outlook, clean your mailbox regularly using the Cleanfox software. In the meantime, here’s how to connect to hotmail.co.uk or hotmail.com addresses.
What are the differences between hotmail.co.uk and hotmail.com?
To create a Hotmail account in United Kingdom, you can use hotmail.co.uk or hotmail.com. There is not much difference between the two. Moreover, all Hotmail addresses can be converted to Outlook since the Webmail has changed its name. But it is also possible to keep your old Hotmail account while enjoying Outlook features. However, a new user can only create an outlook.com account.
Both hotmail.co.uk and hotmail.com allow you to send and receive messages for free. The storage is almost unlimited. With Outlook, the interface has been improved and user features updated. Additionally, it is the second most used messaging service after Gmail.
