Microsoft Microsoft launched a preview of Outlook.com - a Metro web email client that will eventually replace Hotmail. Looks pretty good (but then, that's Metro for you). Ironically, it seems to work better, and is more smooth, than the mail client in Windows 8. Would be awesome - although obviously unlikely - if Microsoft allowed you to add accounts to Outlook.com (instead of being tied to your Microsoft account). I'd love to use this for my personal email account. Update: I'm being an idiot - you can actually do this! Nice.

Hahaha, what a great feature. If you want decent email client, you have to send all your emails to Microsoft. If you don't want to do this, you're stuck with a shitty desktop client.

Now I understand why the desktop client is shitty in the first place.

Or, you could buy the Outlook desktop app (or use any other desktop email client of your choice).

Or use a Mac, where decent PIM functionality is integrated in the OS.
