Microsoft's new email service, Outlook, is every bit as good as Gmail

It launched today, and I'm loving it so far. I recommend signing up for an @outlook.com address now, since it's a new service and almost every name is available.

Here's an in depth review.

It's nothing like that at all. It's a completely new email service built from scratch...

I am sure there are trolls across the internet spending way too much time stealing those addresses.

Still, our experience transitioning from Gmail to Outlook.com wasn't completely smooth: our labels didn't come with us, and whenever we responded to a message from Gmail, our response didn't sync with Outlook.com.

outlook is terrible. why would I want to replicate that terrible experience into my personal email?

that's like Ford refusing to rebrand the Taurus.

Windows 7, which isn't bad considering it's their current OS until the fall.

Because this isn't the Outlook to which you're referring (the software based email client that is a part of the Office suite).

Outlook.com is a completely new web based email service designed from the ground up.

The same reasons people switch to Gmail - better design, as well as fewer and less intrusive ads.

Also, a larger file size for attachments - 300 MB for files from SkyDrive, and 100 MB for standard files, compared to a 25 MB cap for Gmail.
