This website is one of the most used at-no-cost email websites. It was the first free one. The good thing is that say you are going on a year cruise around the world and, you don’t have internet connection so you can’t check your mail, your account will not be deleted or deactivated. Well now it will after two months. So if you are unable to check your email and have a free account get someone to check it for you every once in a while. If you have a paid account then it doesn’t ever get disabled or turned off. Upon registration, people who are wishing to be use hotmail can choose from a normal Hotmail address (e.g. @hotmail.com, @hotmail.co.uk, etc) or if you want something more localized there is the selection of Windows Live address (e.g. @live.com, @live.ca, @live.co.uk, @live.com.au, etc). You can also change the theme and colour by using the options section.
