The new email service is also less obtrusive for the user because it contains text box adverts. These only expand to a full advert when the user scrolls over them.

A big factor in its functionality is the ability for emails to be read easily on Smartphones and Tablets. Because so many people read their email on the go these days, Microsoft wanted to ensure that their users were able to view them on portable devices. has some great new social features too, for instance when you open an email from a friend they will get access to the friends most recent social updates. Users can also replace ad boxes with an instant message window.
