Need a new email address?
Remember when Hotmail was all the rage? Millions of people may still use the service, but Gmail has been a far more effective and efficient email-management system for the last few years. Hotmail is still around, but Microsoft is rolling out a new online email system at Outlook.com. If you are looking for a new email address, are tired of what Yahoo or Google have to offer, are looking to break free from the shackles of a Shaw or MTS address or just want to start your digital life over with an empty inbox, make sure you grab your desired user name before it gets snapped up. Even if you don’t switch over completely, you can always forward the account to whatever service you are using now, or go all in and move everything over to Outlook if it meets your needs better. If you have stock in Microsoft, you may not want to dump it yet. Early reports are very positive for the new email service.
