Microsoft celebrates first Birthday of Outlook with gifts and goodies

Outlook Mail turns one! Microsoft replaced Hotmail by introducing Outlook mail in 2012. But then it was named as the preview version because Microsoft was in the continuous process of bug fixing and collecting feedback to make it better.


On 19th February 2013 Microsoft officially announced Outlook and removed the Preview tag. Just one year later Programmers are quite happy with their progress and on occasion of Outlook’s first Happy birthday, Microsoft giving away gifts in contests. The Analysts talked about how they genuinely researched and studied on demands of users and introduced new features like Adding feedback,  customizing background and IMAP.

People welcomed the new UI and so with a gesture of gratitude Microsoft started a contest in Twitter. People who use the hashtag #OutlookTurnsOne in their Twitter post will be eligible to bag a prize from Microsoft, but we are clueless about the gifts to be disposed.


Happiness is that best therapy. Use it to heal yourself and then others!
