First launched in 1996, Hotmail is a very popular Internet browser-based e-mail program. Free to use with a basic account, Hotmail provides high-quality e-mail options and a good bit of service space to users. Most revenue is accrued through the attachment of advertisements to e-mail windows. Hotmail was purchased by Microsoft in 1997, and in recent years its member database has been integrated into Microsoft's Windows Live network. This makes it relatively simple to find other Hotmail users.
