Microsoft Outlook.com Launched with 60 Million Accounts

Close on the heels of starting a wily campaign attacking Google’s Gmail, software company Microsoft has today, Feb. 19, introduced its email service Microsoft Outlook.com.

Since the release of Outlook.com last summer as a preview, millions of people have already actively started using it, making it the world’s fastest growing email service, going from 0 to 60 million in just six months, claims Microsoft.

In order to promote Outlook.com, Microsoft had recently launched a campaign “Don’t Get Scroogled by Gmail” aimed to hit the popularity of rival Google’s Gmail. (Read: Microsoft Attacks Google’s Gmail with Blistering Campaign)

Microsoft Outlook.com targets four key areas:

  1. Delivering a new intuitive experience on modern browsers and devices
  2. Keeping people connected with their friends and co-workers across the networks they really use
  3. Providing an inbox to handle today’s email needs including SkyDrive for sharing virtually anything in a single email
  4. Putting people back in control by prioritizing their privacy

Starting today, Microsoft will begin to upgrade every Hotmail user to Outlook.com. The upgrade is seamless and instant for Hotmail customers; everything from their @hotmail.com email address, password, contacts, etc. will stay the same, says the company.
