Outlook.com Experiment (Part 2)
So it has been a few months and I actually stuck with Outlook.com up until recently switching back to Gmail. Outlook.com is a great platform, it just lacks a few minor features that I couldn’t get over. There were a few things I did find I missed from Outlook when switching back to to Gmail though also.
For starters, I still use my Outlook account for all my Microsoft services. I found there to be several bugs with switching your email alias to a different one if you already have a Windows Phone device registered to your Outlook email. Not a huge deal, I just forward my Outlook emails to my Gmail again now.
Now for the main differences that made me switch back… (more…)
So I have been a long time user of Gmail and many other Google services and recently when the new Outlook.com service was announced I decided to register an email address that way I could claim one before all good variations of my name were taken. With a name like John Jones it doesn’t take too long. Sadly after I did get a rather short email address I never decided to use it for email, rather I just tied my Xbox Live, Zune, and other Microsoft services to it. Well now I have decided to give it a try and rather than just start with a few emails here and there from this account I dove in head first. I moved everything from my Gmail over and now will use Outlook.com as my main email service for the next few days or until I decide whether I’m switching for good or going back to Gmail.
