Should I move to outlook from GMail, Yahoo or other mail providers ?
At this point of time, the outlook.com project is in preview mode. Hence, it is not advisable for anyone to use it as a primary email account. If you are tech – savvy or want to experience a new version of Microsoft based mail services with better personalised e-mail address , you can give a try.
Will Outlook.com effect the user base of GMail or other other email providers
A simple answer of this question – NO. Outlook has created a tutorial guide for migrating from GMail to outlook. Most of the GMail users have never migrated to any other providers due to its features and a sentimental attachment towards GMail.
If this preview mode goes viral as expected by the company , Yahoo will surely have a major blow. Due to lack of features like Cloud Storage and WebApps , there is not a single reason to have a primary email account in Yahoo. Moreover, there are several security issues associated with Yahoo Mail.
As for now, just go to outlook and get a chance to grab a simple email address.
