Microsoft has completed moving its Hotmail.com users over to Outlook.com, and executives are now claiming the company has 400 million active Outlook.com accounts as a result.
Microsoft announced the completion of the Hotmail-Outlook.com transition on May 2. The company added that it's migrated 150 petabyes of e-mail over the past six weeks.
As part of the announcement, Microsoft also said it's adding two new features to Outlook.com: SMTP Send, making it easier to send mail from different e-mail addresses, and deeper SkyDrive integration.
The new SMTP Send support streamlines the process of sending from an alias, without recipients seeing a message saying, "Sent on behalf of..." And on the SkyDrive front, users can now insert files and pictures directly from SkyDrive.
