Competition is good

Dear MSN Hotmail Member:

As a valued MSN Hotmail Member, we want you to know that there are some exciting changes coming soon to your account that will help you do more, receive more and store more than ever before. And it’s FREE.

That’s not all.

We’re rolling out email antivirus protection as well as enhanced storage to help meet your growing needs. This will make MSN Hotmail, a world class email service that both scans and cleans ingoing and outgoing email for viruses and worms before they enter your inbox.

In addition to delivering world-class antivirus protection, you can also look forward to an upgrade in your storage capacity. In fact, you’ll receive 125 times your current email storage with the introduction of a 250 MB inbox as well as the ability to send attachments up to 10 MB.

We’d like to thank you for being a valued MSN Hotmail Member and look forward to telling you about more exciting changes to your Hotmail account in the coming months.

We will send an update on when and how these exciting changes will be made to your account within two weeks. Please check your email for this important update.

Thank you, and enjoy the good news.

WOO HOO. Anti-virus? 10 MB attachments? 250 MB inbox? I cannot contain my excitement… πŸ™‚ Even though I’m not fond of Hotmail, this is nice to see that GMail has caused the market to freak out. The thing I really think is interesting is that in a communication from Microsoft’s Action Pack Business Partner thingy, they asked that we use a real email address and not ones of free services such as Hotmail. Classic.
