I have used hotmail for years, some of it is good, the only downside is the amount of junk mail I get on a daily basis

HOTMAIL.COM EMAIL - IS NOT RECOMMENDED PERIOD - Read On and I'LL EXPLAIN EVERYTHING THOROUGHLY - Let Me Begin with the Fact That MICROSOFT HOTMAIL.COM EMAIL IS Being "PHASED OUT" - What this Means to YOU is That Even though You Could Still Sign Up For One or Use The One You Already Have - ALL SUPPORT WILL END and SECURITY WILL BE ALL BUT GONE - Beginning in Mid 2014 (with little if any notice or warning, even to existing users) MICROSOFT BEGAN THE EMAIL "CHANGE OVER" - "FROM HOTMAIL.COM" to "OUTLOOK.COM" - Here's Why YOU SHOULD NOT Even Consider ANY MICROSOFT BASED EMAILS - What Dear Old Microsoft Began, and are STILL Doing to (New and Existing)HOTMAIL.COM EMAIL Users (in Mid 2014) Was an UNWARRANTED Blocking of Hotmail Email Accounts - Sometimes at Random for NO REASON, other Times for Days / Weeks / Even Month's - By Throwing Up Strange (Misleading and Unwarranted) Diversions "AFTER LOGIN" - That Then PREVENT USER ACCESS - BY BLOCKING THE ENTIRE EMAIL PAGES - Examples of MICROSOFT Chicanery, Which Appears as "Security Feature Questions" that are "Protecting" YOU - THEY ARE NOT - The Hotmail User Increasingly Find Themselves and ALL HOTMAIL E-MAIL (Sent / Saved / Received Emails, Account Data and Information) COMPLETELY INACCESSIBLE - BLOCKED! Some COMMON Examples are Strange Questions, Account, Even Password or Additional Email Verifications - WHERE THE USER IS ASKED THINGS LIKE - (have you, were you, hacked? - Did you request Security Check? and So On. All of Which Have Only YES/NO Options. Regardless of HOW or WHAT is Answered or Verified - ALL Simply Lead the User "Right Back to The Same Page - Other Options Reported ARE: "Send Username-Email and Password Verification Requests" - "Send a Security Code Requests" - EVEN **Provide a "Picture with Either Email and/or Your Actual or User Name Written On a Piece of Paper** . . . . Ridiculous? Yes However "NEVER" CHOOSE THE LAST OPTION (**) FOR "ANYTHING" ONLINE - This Risks Giving EVERYTHING BUT A PASSWORD TO "ALL" Your Email Account And YOUR OTHER ONLINE INFO - This IS a Major Vulnerability. . . Again (*) the WORST IS: to Agree and (Send Your Picture in an Email) or (Send Your Picture w/Email and/or Name Written on a Piece of Paper) AS A RULE OF THUMB - These SHOULD NEVER BE DONE - Although an Ever Increasing Number of Email and Website Providers (FACEBOOK BEING ONE OF THE FIRST WEBSITES TO BEGIN THESE DECEPTIVE PRACTICES, FIRST BEGAN BY CELLPHONE COMPANY'S - SIMPLY TO GAIN "MORE OR ALL" YOUR ONLINE AND PRIVATE DATA - THESE (*) OPTIONS SEEM NORMAL (They are Not) - ALWAYS SAY: NO or CHOOSE ANY OTHER OPTION - Friends, NEVER SEND YOUR PICTURE WITH NAME OR EMAIL TO ANY WEBSITE ON LINE OR ON A CELL-PHONE OR ON A SMARTPHONE - There Are TWO (2) Really Good Reasons For This Advice and Warning! One(1) Not Only Can This GIVE A HACKER Everything But Your Password, Compromising Both "YOUR" Security and "YOUR" Private Data On Any Other Websites "YOU" Use!!! . . . and TWO(2) These Kinds of Options ARE REALLY JUST A RIDICULOUS "PRIVATE INFORMATION / DATA" GRAB - And The Insult to Injury Is That The Data, "YOUR" Data Is THEN Sold By Facebook/Hotmail/Yahoo Etc to; Government Intelligence Service Agencies- Like: the NSA, FBI and FEMA/FUSION CENTERS - Simply FOR PROFIT - YOUR PRIVATE DATA Is First Compromised Then It's Being SOLD FOR $$ . . . . . In Summation: "HOTMAIL.COM EMAIL - EARNS THE HELL NO - NOT EVER" RATING - As Well as the "IT'S A SECURITY RISK, DUMP IT NOW" RATING! In Closing I'd Like to Leave YOU With "Some IRONY" - Around 20 Years or So Ago - I HAD AN "OUTLOOK.COM" E-MAIL ACCOUNT - MICROSOFT PHASED IT OUT - FORCING ME OVER TO "HOTMAIL" E-MAIL - - SOOOOOO FAST FORWARD THE SAME TIME FRAME - MICROSOFT IS PHASING OUT "HOTMAIL.COM" EMAIL AND FORCING USERS OVER TO "OUTLOOK.COM" EMAIL - TO WHICH I SAY >>>>> W - T - F

Owned and ran by Microsoft. It is an email service. I personally don't use it as I prefer Gmail, but it's your choice on what email company you sign up with.

It's either: A shop or other that uses SPAM to his promotion (adverts), even famous brands, deemed reliable, do the same now, I've seen public services in any country to use SPAM for their advancement (tourism, trade fairs, shows, festivals, etc..), there is only a small step for hospitals, police, governments, schools, ... will go do the same too. A disaster of modern times now affecting other means of mobile communications (smartphones, tablets, SMS, etc..). Or if it's either: An address used for SPAM, endless new addresses (even the wacky, with a letter changed, weird word, numbers, .......) are created permanently to bypass filters, updated constantly, that harassed and antispam services put to block this scourge! Apparently this is the feast of site creations including fake sites for spam, scams, to sell us (legally or illegally) their products or services, and pollute the planet with electric resources wasted, thank you also HOSTS complaisant with the SPAM and the world of profit! One day, the number of Internet domains used for SPAM extensively exceed the number of useful internet domains, like the number of SPAM received which represents 90% of e-mails that are received in the world! Proof here: http://www.cnet.com/news/report-spam-now-90-percent-of-all-e-mail/ /!\ A VERY IMPORTANT TIP /!\ : DON'T CLICK ON ANYLINK IN A SPAM, INCLUDING THE UNSUSCRIBE LINK, BECAUSE YOU WOULD CONFIRM THAT YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IS VALID, TO BETTER SPAMMING YOU, SPAMS are very contagious with illegal resale data, unofficially legal in corrupt countries! REPORT DIRECTLY SUSPECTS E-MAIL, SMS OR CALL TO SERVICES PROVIDED FOR THIS PURPOSE THAT THE AUTHORITIES AND ASSOCIATIONS HAVE PUT IN PLACE TO COMBAT THIS PANDEMIC! ------------------------------------------------------------------ Il s'agit soit: Un commerce ou autres qui se sert du SPAM pour faire sa promotion, même des célèbres marques, réputé fiable en font de même maintenant, j'ai vu des services publics de n'importe quel pays utiliser du SPAM pour leur promotion (tourisme, expositions, salons, festivités, etc.), il n'y a qu'un pas à franchir pour que les hôpitaux, la police, les gouvernements, les écoles, ... , s'y mettent aussi. Un véritable désastre des temps modernes qui touche maintenant d'autres moyens de communications mobiles (smartphones, tablettes, SMS, etc.). Ou il s'agit sinon soit: Une des adresses servant pour le SPAM, une infinité de nouvelles adresses (même les plus farfelus, avec une lettre qui change, un mot bizarre, des chiffres, .......) sont créé en permanence pour contourner les filtres, mis a jour en permanence, que les harcelés et les services antispams mettent pour bloquer ce fléau! Apparemment c'est la fête des créations de site y compris des faux sites pour du spam, des arnaques, de la publicité pour nous vendre (légalement ou illégalement) leur produits, ou services, et polluer la planète avec des ressources électriques gaspillés, merci aussi les hébergeurs complaisants envers le SPAM et le monde du profit! Un jour, le nombres de domaines internet servant à du SPAM dépassera largement le nombre de domaines internet utiles, à l'instar du nombre de SPAM reçus qui représente 90% des e-mails qui sont reçus dans le monde! La preuve ici: http://www.cnet.com/news/report-spam-now-90-percent-of-all-e-mail/ /!\ UN CONSEIL TRÈS IMPORTANT /!\ : NE CLIQUEZ JAMAIS SUR N'IMPORTE QUEL LIENS DANS UN SPAM, Y COMPRIS LE LIEN DE DÉSABONNEMENT, VOUS NE FERAIS QUE CONFIRMER QUE VOTRE ADRESSE E-MAIL EST VALIDE, POUR MIEUX VOUS SPAMMER, le SPAM est très contagieux avec la revente illégale des données, officieusement légale dans des pays corrompus! SIGNALEZ DIRECTEMENT LES E-MAILS, LES SMS OU APPELS SUSPECTS VERS DES SERVICES PRÉVUS A CET EFFET QUE LES AUTORITÉS ET ASSOCIATIONS ONT MIS EN PLACE POUR LUTTER CONTRE CETTE PANDÉMIE!

Password character limit, unable to reuse passwords, too easily locked out without a very simple way to recover your account. Email's decent, but the password issues are too impossible. Moved on to Gmail.
