A Short History Of Hotmail

In ’95 Hotmail was introduced: the first place to get a free email address, disconnected from an ISP.

Hotmail was properly the first contact for many new web users with the powers of the internet: communicating by email. Four years later after it's introduction 30 million people worldwide were exchanging @hotmail email addresses. At some point maybe thought to be the only way to ‘email’ by n00bs.

Hotmail was bought by Microsoft in 1998 for just 400 million dollars, a bargain for pre-internet bubble standards.
Now in 2007 the end of Hotmail is near – although the @hotmail.com won’t go anywhere- since it’s transformation to “Live” mail to become an integrated part of the Microsoft’s “Live” family.
