Windows 7: New Hotmail is out! Outlook.com new domain


31 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
 
 
New Hotmail is out! Outlook.com new domain

Anyone else here using it?

Main problem for me---it signs me out after anything I do, if I use Chrome. Not on Firefox.

I also can't get TrueSwitch to work either.

It will not work at all with Opera. Ads? ADS? Really? What are they thinking?

BTW, am I the only person in the world that cannot get his email from ATT.net/yahoo using Windows Live, Outlook 10 or my android phone email client?

I have been trying to figure it out for a week now. I'm about to throw in the towel and find another email client/provider.......

Update: Opera released version 12.01 which corrected the problem (as well as some other fixes). The email mysteriously started working again-imagine that. MS/ATT/Yahoo must have gotten it right for a short while. It will go back out not too long from now, like it has before....

Why I switched, and ease of switching to outlook.com
I switched to outlook.com only because I use Outlook 2010 (the real one). It is a shocking change, and perhaps too plain, but I kept it. Granted, I do not use it often due to owning Outlook 2010, as I've mentioned.

Didn't have to change a thing on Outlook 2010, it still syncs flawlessly with it. When I go to my hotmail, it automatically signs in to outlook.com, as I had it set up to do in hotmail.

More on Outlook 2010 and 2013 comparisons
I should also note that I do not plan to pay extra to 'upgrade' to outlook 2013. The appearance is far too 'white', but I'm sure the functionality has improved, if but slightly. I am playing around with the 2013 preview at the moment on another computer in order to compare. The reason I bring this up is because outlook.com was based off of outlook 2013.

Descriptions of outlook.com
Basically, this hotmail -> outlook is outlook 2013 with less functionality. Hotmail appears to be more user friendly (perhaps because I am used to it?). Some people enjoy the 'simplicity' of this basic outlook.com provider.

Grade sheet
I'd give outlook.com a B- score. Hotmail would get a B+. Outlook 2010 gets an A, and Outlook 2013 gets a B+

And here I thought they were expanding hotmail into one big giant email provider/calendar/everything location. Seems they are scaling back?

What do you mean by "anything I do"? I'm using Chrome and I'm switching between folders, reading emails, etc, and I'm not logged out.

If I switch between folders- signed out. Refresh? Signed out. Delete email? Signed out. If I do ANY function, while in CHrome---gone.

Also messaging won't load...color schemes are blank.

I would make a new account on your computer and install Chrome under the new profile and see if things are different.

I figured it out. It was a Chrome extension doing it.

It was checking for new Hotmail.

It should've presented no problem as my Hotmail and Outlook are combined.

IE, "Hotlook."

So if I can get Trueswitch to work...I am gone from Yahoo.

Shouldn't it work if you use Trueswitch to copy your Yahoo stuff to Hotmail? After all, the outlook.com address has access to all of the hotmail stuff, doesn't it?
