Just in you case didn't know, Hotmail is being phased out and will soon be called Outlook. For those using Hotmail as their e-mail service provider, you can make the switch now, which I advise, or wait until they make you. :-)
Be on the lookout for major campaigns about this switch. Now, you have the time to think if you want to stay with your current e-mail service or live on the edge and go to Outlook! :-D You have time and the choice is yours!
