Is there any online email service similar to Hotmail?

After hearing that Hotmail will be gone for good (replaced by outlook), I was wondering if there is any other services like Hotmail in terms of layouts, security and simplicity?

After getting used to using Hotmail for years, I just hate the looks on the outlook/Gmail and I can't really grasp their features. I've also tried looking for other services though I don't see any which fits into my needs.

Thank you, help would be appreciated it.

The only email services I know of and have used is Yahoo mail, Gmail, and Hotmail. I still have the same look of Hotmail because I didn't opt to switch it. I'm sure they'll probably force people to later though.

I have already started to receive emails and the daily pop-up nag to switch to Outlook !
The option to try it and or switch back and forth is no longer available. So it will be Outlook or something else.

Outlook may actually be the closest to Hotmail. I also use Yahoo, but the classic, which is very similar. I don't know if you can use classic on a new account. I use it because the new Yahoo was not built with Opera in mind. A Guy

Alright, looks like its gameover...

I just got switched to Outlook without any warnings and I don't have any options to change back to Hotmail.

Sigh...

Have a look at gmx .com as an alternate , it has a mail collection system that will allow you to collect any outlook mail into the new address
