If you’ve been on the Internet for a long time, there’s a good chance Hotmail was your first email address. Launched in 1996, Hotmail was bought by Microsoft the following year, and the service has gone through myriad changes since then. Today, Microsoft is making its most radical change yet to the 16 year old email service.
One can only hope that they improve the security of the product along side the changes. Hotmail always seems to be under the influence of a hacker or two.
