Bye-bye Hotmail

Well, that's the final nail in the coffin for my Hotmail account. As of today, it appears that I cannot access my free account from Outlook (or Outhouse Excess, sorry, Outlook Express)... but if I want to upgrade, a snip at a mere £14.99 a year, I can once again do what I used to do for free. Hmmm... tempting... but... no. Not when I have Gmail; *especially* not when Gmail added POP and SMTP access to my account as of yesterday; and is still free. Great move, Microsoft.

I shall keep my Hotmail account for Passport-related communications, but as of now, that's all.
