Microsoft have updated their windows client "Outlook".
Microsoft have also announced redesigned user interface for @live @hotmail @msn and other Microsoft emails.
New user interface have Windows 8 and Windows Phone like look, making the email use more simple, fast and easier.
New email have integrated Facebook, Twitter, MSN messenger, Calender and SkyDrive. A cool design, visual effects make Microsoft Outlook appealing.
Microsoft new email domain registrations are open, many short nicks, names and good IDs are available for registration. Go grab your first name with @outlook.comIf you don't see new email user interface on your old ID then try to login from outlook.com
I think Microsoft's future email services focus is with Outlook name.
Outlook (hotmail, msn mail, live mail) are available for smartphones too. Details
