Like many other email providers such as Yahoo or Gmail, Hotmail is still one of the most widely used ones and has become better and better with time and the monumental increase in competition from other competitors. It has also been transformed into ‘Outlook’, which is commonly known as the email client that is used on the world’s most common operating system, Windows.
Hotmail was bought by Microsoft for an estimated $400 million and has been incorporated with MSN now, with more than 30 million members over 10 years ago; it is hard to estimate the size to which it has grown to today.
