Hotmail.com - Free Email Service

Hotmail.com started in the 1990s, when the Internet just started to become popular. Hotmail.com and RocketMail.com were probably the only two sites that offered free web based email accounts. Hotmail.com remained independent long after RocketMail.com was sold to Yahoo!.

In the end, Hotmail.com was sold to MSN.com. Unlike its counterpart RocketMail.com which was soon forgotten, the Hotmail.com domain remains active and popular even today. It was probably due to the fact that it attracted many customers while it was an independent company.

Hotmail.com and Live.com/Windows Live

Recently Microsoft has announced plans to retool their web application empire under a collective brand name Windows Live/Live.com. Many of the functions of previous Microsoft online services (like MSN.com and Hotmail.com) are being folded into the service. Applications like clipboards, contacts, folder sharing and more are also being implemented over time.
