Outlook.com - Your new Mailbox

Outlook.com is a free modern email service from Microsoft. I have been using Gmail since 2004 but the new Outlook.com service looks extremely tempting both in terms of features and also the user-interface which I think is far better than Gmail. After spending time with Outlook for about a day now, I found several unique and useful features in Outlook.com that you will miss inside Gmail.

So what’s new about Outlook.com? And why would anyone consider switching from Gmail?

It has a new look, a slew of new features, and a new name that is surprisingly familiar.
1. Outlook is fast:
The most impressive thing about the new Outlook.com, other than the beautiful UI, is its speed. It feels fast.
2. Social Done Right:
Outlook.com is giving you the first email service that is connected to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, and soon, Skype, to bring relevant context and communications to your email.On the other hand, Google has integrated a social network into my mailbox that could be growing but none of my friends and family members use it. 
3. Send Large Files and Email Attachments:
With Outlook, you can send any number of file attachment provided the overall size of the message is less than 25 MB. Outlook is more tightly integrated with SkyDrive and if you try attaching a file that exceed the 25 MB limit, it will automatically send it via SkyDrive. It comes with free Word, Excel, and PowerPoint web apps built-in, plus 7 GB of free cloud storage with SkyDrive for sharing photos, videos, or other large files without huge attachments
4. Easily Recover your Deleted Mails:
Outlook makes it easy for you to recover your deleted messages even if you have permanently emptied your Trash bin. Open the “Deleted” folder in Outlook and click the link that says “recover deleted messages.” I am not sure how long Outlook keeps your deleted messages but this might be an extremely handy feature in case you accidentally empty the Delete folder.  Your Gmail account doesn’t offer any sort of message recovery.
5. Unlimited Storage Space:
Gmail offers 10 GB of storage space for free accounts. Outlook offers virtually unlimited storage that expands.Microsoft Outlook includes email storage that expands to provide you with as much storage space as you need. Your inbox capacity will automatically increase as you need more space.
