Outlook is the first web based email service provider in the world. It was started back in 1996 as Hotmail and later acquired by Microsoft in 1997. Due to the increased competition from the other email service providers especially Gmail, Microsoft decided to add new features so as to keep up with the competition. Later they changed the name from Hotmail to Outlook to signify the improvement. Some of the features that were introduced were; the Skype integration which is a feature that allows you to communicate with your friends via Skype. Another great feature is the ability to read and edit documents online without downloading them. With the quick view and click on filters features you can filter all your emails, attached documents and files and many more. For you to get to enjoy all these features, you will have to log in to your outlook account.
