Outlook.com Adds IMAP & OAuth Integration

Outlook.com Adds IMAP & OAuth Integration

Microsoft have finally added IMAP & OAuth integration to their free email offering, Outlook.com. In a move to attract more users to the platform, will this be enough to to break into the giant that is Gmail? IMAP has been an email standard for over 20 years now, and all major (and most minor) email services do provide IMAP support. So when Microsoft updated Hotmail to Outlook.com, and delibera... »

How To Have Your Own Custom Email Address For Just The Price Of A Domain

How To Have Your Own Custom Email Address For Just The Price Of A Domain

Back in December 2012 I wrote an article that explained how to use your own domain name with Gmail. Let’s be honest, it’s much better to have a custom email address like mail@johnsmith.com than wizards_sleeve839@hotmail.com, don’t you think? The problem with the article I wrote back in December is that there is a limitation with the system that only allows you to really receive e... »

Inky Email App – Webmail, But Local

Inky Email App – Webmail, But Local

The Inky email app is a new and innovative way of checking your emails. Think of it like a mixture between your webmail account like Gmail, or Hotmail and a local email app like Thunderbird, Geary, or Outlook. The Inky email app isn’t just another app that lets you check your emails though. It approaches email in a completely unique way. It’s quite strange at first, but once you get us... »

Webmail Or Email Client. Which Is Better?

Webmail Or Email Client. Which Is Better?

Outlook, Thunderbird, Geary or webmail? How do you access your emails? In the past I have used many different applications for accessing emails, some of which are named above, and some others include Outlook Web Access (OWA) and even command line. There are many email applications out there, but with the rise of web technologies like HTML 5 “internet apps” are becoming more and more co... »

Sky To Change Their Email Service From Google To Yahoo!

Many people all over the UK use Sky for not only their TV, but also their internet, telephone and services like email. I myself have TV, telephone and fibre optic broadband with Sky. I also have a Sky email address although I don’t use it.

Microsoft’s Outlook.com Upgrade Causes Problems For Users

Microsoft’s Outlook.com Upgrade Causes Problems For Users

A few days ago, I wrote about how Microsoft have upgraded their free email platform Hotmail to a new service dubbed Outlook.com. I mentioned in the article that I found Outlook to be very clean an modern looking; but with the trepidations that a lot of users have about Hotmail (such as spam) may well translate over to Outlook.com. So I wouldn’t be moving from Gmail. It’s been around a ... »

How To Have Your Own Email Domain Through Gmail

I’m sure that most (if not all) of you have heard of Gmail – if you haven’t then you must have been living under a rock for the last decade. Just in case though, Gmail is a fantastic, free email system that is provided by Google. Patronisation over, some of you may not know that Google also offer a paid for version of Gmail that allows you to have a much larger mailbox (25GB inst... »

Hotmail Evolves Into Outlook

Hotmail Evolves Into Outlook

I think it’s safe to say that most people moved away from Hotmail in favour of Gmail, mainly because of the abysmal spam filtering system that Hotmail uses. I personally use Google Apps for all of my email accounts – personal, RefuGeeks & DroidHQ. It’s an excellent system, so when I heard that Microsoft are doing away with Hotmail and are replacing it with Outlook.com –... »
