If you haven't signed up for Live Mail, and answered "Other" above, how come?



Second: MS Live Mail gives you a few things you can already get with GMail (2Gb of space, better message threading) and a nicer interface that resembles Outlook, while keeping your Hotmail address and inbox. It's really worth while if you have a paid account ("MSN Hotmail Plus") or one of those ancient Hotmail accounts that was grandfathered in with HTTP access via Outlook and Outlook Express. Otherwise, it's just another address, for people who are probably chock full of them.
