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.
