Windows Live Hotmail is a free, Internet-based e-mail service that is a component of the Microsoft Windows live group. It offers free unlimited storage, instant messaging, a calendar and address book. When signed in to Windows Live Hotmail and browsing, information on the sites you visit are stored to help display targeted ads. If you don't want these ads to show up, you can block them by editing your system's host files.
