Hotmail users will soon notice a change to their email accounts. Microsoft has radically overhauled the service, and renamed it Outlook.

Outlook is Microsoft's other popular email brand. Eventually, everyone on hotmail will be moved to Outlook, according to the company. Users will be able to keep their present email addresses.

Hotmail is the world's largest email service with 325 million users. Microsoft says it is the first email service to connect to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, and Skype.
