Hotmail getting hotter

Looks like Hotmail is getting a redesign. Including a bazillion filtering options and a brand new app Android app with 2-way sync for email, contacts AND calendar.


The filtering also includes an “unsubscribe” feature that lets you cancel subscriptions to newsletters you signed for during weak moments. It would also feature a scheduled cleanup feature which would delete certain types of emails after a designated number of days.

You can also create custom categories right where the emails lie. Think of them as Labels in GMail. Just select an item in your inbox and create a custom selection filter of similar items and you’re all done.

And, last but not least, you’ll now see so-called Instant Actions (e.g., “delete,” “flag”) when you hover over messages. The changes will be rolling out in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for them.
