You can go back just now. Under the Tools icon there is an option to go back to Hotmail. Ultimately though you might have to go with it. Hopefully they will improve it before forcing everybody over.

Heap of poo (at the moment).

Thank goodness I only use hotmail once in a blue moon, and then via the mail client on my Mac.

Oh dear, sounds like yet another problem to have to grapple with. :mad:

To add insult to injury I see that Photobucket is forcing me and everyone else onto their new site on the 18th March. I did try this new site to post pics of a Meet a month or so ago. After struggling for hours all I managed was the Links codes in the Post, no pics.

Happy days ahead on more than one front then. :cry:

they've removed the option to revert to the old hotmail now as well, so i'm stuck :(

i hate the look & feel of it too - it all feels a bit 'fisher price' to me. can't believe microsfot have released this rubbish without it being properly developed :(

That sounds like a pain. I've been a Hotmail users for years and think the current Hotmail is a decent enough effort for a free email service. My missus uses Yahoo and I think that's pretty rubbish by comparison.

Is the Outlook.com replacement supposed to make home email look like Outlook that 99% of us use at work?

I've had this offer recently as well, and have declined it every time, I hope I don't HAVE to upgrade it soon though, judging by the comments on here.........:eek:

Any similarity between outlook.com & outlook is purely unintentional. Outlook.com is basically the same as the new Mail client in Win8.

Did it about half an hour ago and they said they'd reached the day's quota, so I'm just going to wait for them to do it automatically.

I don't use it, I'm only keeping it as I've had the account for years.

I don't use Outlook at work. I use a better email system!

Seriously though I don't understand why anyone uses hotmail anyway. There are lots of better alternatives - gmail for example is always faster and with the various methods of access available - web, desktop client, ithingy and smartphone - it's more accessible than hotmail anyway.

don't do it badgers :eek:

"Proper outlook" the bane of my life that email app! As I say, I'm only keeping it as I've had the account since the year dot.

My G Mail account kept requiring me to change my password as I think someone raided it regularly,and as I'm not that computer savvy, I use Hotmail instead now. :(:

If all else fails as I don't e mail much at all, I'll use the missus acc. that she has set up at the local library, and get her to oversee my muddling ways.:lol:

New versions of Outlook have recently been released with the same look and feel as Windows 8. Most companies won't have upgraded to the new versions yet. This new website gives you a similar appearance to these new versions.

The new fully installed versions such as Office 2013 have been out for a couple of months to businesses and home users whilst the new version of the streamed subscription based Office system, Office 365, has been out a few weeks for home users and very recently for businesses.

Hmmmm - can't say I'm Impressed, Al.....I've ignored the offers so far, too - and I don't like the look of that.......always viewed all my email on various accounts via Outlook Express, and that's been OK - I guess because I'm used to it......but I really don't like being "forced" to upgrade....

Mind you I'm still using XP, too ;)
