I love how so many jumped to conclusion about Newmail being its new name (not directed at anyone in particular on this thread). Surely those people can realize its far easier to communicate with other parts of your team (in this case the Hotmail team) by addressing the metrofied hotmail as something easy to say like Newmail..

"Hotmail" sounds like an online porn service, wouldn't mind a different name.

That takes me back. I'm showing my age here, but I remember when Hotmail looked like this. http://news.cnet.com...10003321-1.html in Netscape Navigator Gold 3

Yep, same here. I had completely forgotten about WebCourier. I think I had 5 or 6 different subscriptions on that.

One simple thought... why?!. As far as I am concerned "Newmail" is a terrible name.
