To showcase this, the name of the service was originally styled as “HoTMaiL.” In 1997, Hotmail was acquired by Microsoft and became part of the Microsoft Service Network portal as MSN www.Hotmail.com . In 2006 and 2007, after competitors like Gmail and Yahoo Mail entered the picture, Microsoft released a new and improved Hotmail as part of Windows Live.

And in 2013 the service was replaced by Outlook.com, which currently offers email, contact, task, and calendar-managing services available in 106 languages.
