New Outlook.com features’ list

Today got a chance to look at the new hotmail (now called as Outlook.com) from Microsoft. My first look at Outlook.com isn’t bad at all. Uncluttered user interfaces, nice font types, layout of screen, sober colors- all look great.
I am primarily a gmail fan but I must confess that with rapid growth the gmail service is suffering with some problems. And Outlook.com comes as a very pleasant surprise.

Some features-
#1: Nice User Interface 🙂
