    Thumbs up 1 million people sign up for Outlook.com within hours of its launch

    Looks like people are liking Outlook.com, the new personal email service from Microsoft. Around 1 million people sign up for Outlook.com within hours of its launch, tweeted @Outlook.


    If you haven't checked it out yet, do visit Outlook.com and go get your new @outlook.com email address right away, before someone else grabs it!

    If you have already done so, let us know what you think.

    There is one VERY important thing still missing in the new Outlook.com...

    No IMAP4 !?

    This makes it useless for all those of us who want to sort our emails into folders and download them with an emailclient, like fx .Outlook or Thunderbird.

    Personally, i once lost an email because of the default settings in the emailclient which were set to delete read messages on POP3-accounts....
    I managed to retrieve it by manually going through the cache in the emailclient, otherwise it would have been lost forever.
    I don´t use a "POP3-account" normally, but i was testing a new account on live.com when this happened, which reminded me the hard way NEVER to use POP3 again....

    If MS wants to "steal" customers from google, then why don´t they include IMAP4 in their new Outlook.com which they say is the "future"... ???

    EDIT
    added: I don´t use a "POP3-account" normally, but i was testing a new account on live.com when this happened, which reminded me the hard way NEVER to use POP3 again....

    and added ´which they say is the "future" ´ to the last line

    I have had the same @msn.com email address for about 18 years so I don't want a new email address but I went to outlook.com while logged into my live id and it automatically loaded all my @msn.com folders and emails. :-)

    I think it is a little faster than hotmail.

    Can you say "marketing"? The only difference between Outlook.com and Hotmail is the future addition of Skype integration. Otherwise, Outlook.com is just a Plain Jane version of Hotmail.

    Anyone remember Mojave?
