PHOENIX - Hotmail is officially dead.
The company announced yesterday the completion of its transition to the new Outlook.com, which now has more than 400 million accounts.
Hotmail users can choose to keep using those accounts, but they’ll miss out on the new features.
“We’ve been overwhelmed with the response so far,” said Dick Craddock, Outlook.com’s group program manager.
The site includes a more modern interface with multiple new features, including added security, a redesigned calendar and cloud service integration with Skydrive and Skype.
Current users will keep the same email address and won’t have to change any settings on their phones or tablets.
