Hotmail has been around for many years and has a very user-friendly interface. After you create an account at Windows Live Hotmail, you can send and receive e-mail and view your home page. By default, your home page displays the local weather forecast for your set location, e-mail updates, a few photos and news headlines. Hotmail has made it possible for you to customise your home page to get information quickly and conveniently, making the site a handy feature compared to offline mail servers.
