Hotmail is about to be replaced by Outlook.

Microsoft is making its email service available worldwide.

The transition will reportedly be gradual, with all Hotmail users being moved to Outlook by the end of the summer.

Hotmail users will still be able to use their original email address, but the actual interface will look like Outlook.

Microsoft is planning on a full advertising campaign.
