Windows Live Hotmail will begin to roll out an update starting today. The new release does away with the “full” and “classic” versions, and combines the two into a simpler, faster service. Included in the new release:
- Enhanced address book, allowing customers to easily see emails they’ve exchanged with contacts and keep contacts in one consolidated place to use across Windows Live services.
- Ever Increasing Storage – 5 GB to start, with an additional 500 MB per month if customers hit their limit
- Integrated web-based IM with Windows Live Messenger*
- Improved spam fighting technologies that significantly reduce spam.
- Integrated calendar features and Outlook Connector.
*Some features will take several months to reach all users globally
