What Does Your ISP Say About You? This is an interesting (and pretty funny) post from MailChimp data scientist John Foreman about…
Microsoft said it’s working on an issue that’s affected some Hotmail and Outlook.com mail users. Users reported issues with those services starting Monday that spilled over into Tuesday.
Microsoft sees the torrent of email newsletters and daily deal updates as an opportunity to differentiate its Hotmail service by providing a host of new tools to help manage this “gray mail,” part of an ongoing attempt to make Hotmail more competitive against Gmail.

Hotmail, the leading web email provider, has coasted along for years with barely a feature update. But Microsoft is planning a major release for later this summer. The modernized Hotmail will include new features include better email filtering, rich media viewing, and document editing.
Microsoft will reportedly roll out a new version of Hotmail on Monday, one that incorporates message threading and tagging, improved mobile access and social network integration, all at speeds faster than ever. But will it be enough to tempt users away from Gmail?
