WLHLogo219x31 The Windows Live Hotmail hasn’t seen any update for a while since the launch of Windows Live Hotmail in May, however they’ve just launched a small but feature-packed update. As well as offering free accounts the new storage size of 5GB, paying customers (Hotmail Plus or MSN Premium) now get 10GB.

The Hotmail team has posted full list of changes on their blog among them here are some of the important changes

  • Improved contact management lets you merge duplicate contacts. This is a personal favorite, so nice work by the Contacts team.

  • Auto-away messages, useful for when you go on holiday

  • Account forwarding, so now you can forward your Hotmail account to Gmail or Yahoo. Why you’d want to do that I don’t know šŸ˜‰

  • And ofcourse the increase in storage capacity from 2 GB to 5 GB for free users and to 10 GB for premium users

    As usual these updates will not be rolled out immediately.They will be rolled out in parts and we will keep U updated on the latest updates being rolled out!!!
