I love it so far. I was even able to create a nice email address without having to put a crazy barrage of numbers at the end. I love being first in line for stuff like this, I did the same with GMail years ago.

I voted "its alright" (any other place than an OS this stuff don't look that bad)
Although i won't be using it much i don't do emails
unless there is a good reason i avoid logging into to emails
regardless of what the loggin ui looks like.

i just wanted to add i could imagine so more interesting polls than this
sorry but this one is bloody boring.

How about a Windows changes related poll.
Lets see what the community thinks !
Let people have their say ,or we can ***** foot around dodging the subject ?
cue Pro Microsoft puff piece
I guess I'm crazy but the fact that so many people hate Windows 8 is NOT news worthy ?
And to top it off the news has been generated by the members of your news site lol
how much more (of a story) could be handed to Neowin on a silver platter ?

I like the new look, but I can't seem to add attachments to my mails
When I click the link, select a file and click open it doesn't do anything

Anybody else have this problem?

As a Gmail user I absolutely love it and I am switching to outlook. The reason I liked Gmail over hotmail was the readability and simplicity of functions but I don't like google's privacy policy, just because I liked the look and feel I stayed Gmail until now that I can happily switch to Outlook using my hotmail account.

Loving it. I love how much faster it is, how decluttered it is, the Metro look (which, I realize, is personal preference), etc. I can hardly wait to see how they redo the Calendar and SkyDrive, as those are still showing up as the old style for me.

Also, as a Hotmail Plus user? No ads! Love that!

Can't compare to Gmail, but I'm very happy with MS compared to Yahoo, and am glad I left a few years ago.

I like it so far. I'm POPing in all my gmail right now (it is taking forever.........). I plan to try and use it as my primary access point for my @gmail.com address. We'll see how it goes. If I don't like it then I'll just go back to google's website.

A colourwheel picker would be better. I'd at least like to be able to make the colours more pastel and less strain on the eyes, especially all that harsh white.

I love it. Nice clean interface and great social integration. Hotmail felt clunky a bit, but this feels just very very refreshing.

The web design is ok .. But without IMAP it will never be anything more than just a secondary email account for me. I signed up just to take the name I wanted so no one else could.

The best change I've liked so far, that people have yet noticed is that you can multiupload files/ Before you needed each file to be uploaded separately

This needs more leather and paper textures!!!!!!111 I want to pretend I'm reading a real letter because my life is so boring!!!

Seems not to work with Opera (12.00 or 12.01, 64 bit). The links aren't clickable, nothing happens, so I get a list of messages but can't read any.

I like it, can't wait till they replace all of the Windows Live branding

Still only use it for hotmail email though..

I like the clean and spacious look.
I suppose those who don't like it can get creative with Stylish scripts to 'paint the blank canvas'

I don't like that it says Outlook in the logo when I actually have Hotmail. It's a minute picky sticking point for me, however I prefer to see Hotmail.

I'm uber happy with outlook, couldn't be any happier. It's very clean and neat....I wish they would allow us to customize the white background as well.

-But Chrome isn't viewing outlook properly, it's breaking from the right hand side of the grey portion when viewing in maximized window.
