Announcing the Outlook.com Insiders Program

10 posts in this topic

Howdy folks, this is Galileo from the Outlook.com team. We?re getting close to completing the Hotmail to Outlook.com upgrade process. To coincide with this important milestone, and other news you'll hear about very soon, we?re launching our Outlook.com Insiders program exclusively with the Neowin community.

The Outlook.com Insiders program is our first stab at bringing the community closer to our team. This program is made for all the Outlook.com fans out there that like to share their enthusiasm for the product. Through the program you?ll hear about our newest developments directly from our team, as well as learn more about the product itself. Head over to our program description to read more and apply.

A couple notes on the program:

  • This will be open to the U.S. first and we?ll work to open this to more countries in the future.
  • We have a simple selection process that is explained in the program description.
  • We will not be providing early/beta access to the product and the program will not be a support and/or feedback channel.
  • You will hear directly from our team, via email, about product releases and updates, blog posts, etc., at the same time as we publish these.
  • We will have recurring online meetings with folks from our team for you to learn more about how we work to build the product.
  • You will get a chance to participate in events that the Outlook.com team sponsors around the country.

As mentioned above, this is a first try at a program like this. We don?t expect things to be perfect and we?ll learn along the way. I?ll be around to answer questions about the program, but I won?t address concerns on the product itself. If you have product feedback or issues, click on the settings cog in the top-right corner (next to your profile name) and click on Feedback. That?s the best way to reach us.

Thanks and looking forward to meeting many of you through the program!

Galileo

Sr. Product Manager ? Outlook.com

U.S. only again, a shame. I guess the "special relationship" with the UK doesn't count for much these days ;)

p.s. I know this isn't the right place to ask questions about the product, as you stated yourself above.. however if you could ask somebody in charge to visit and comment on this topic please, many of us there would be most appreciative. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windowslive/forum/mail-email/be-careful-this-sender-failed-our-fraud-detection/c1712db2-00ab-4e61-8ede-d20aa6486f45

Well, I'd like to sign up, but I'm Australian..

This is my single greatest dislike of Microsoft as a company.. The US only stuff.

I understand you're unlikely to host events near us, but it would be nice not to be a leper for once >.>

I was very interested (and I still am), however, come on! Crawl out of your USA hermit shell for once and open it up to other countries!

Same as above two posts would be good if you could include more than just the US
