re: Microsoft: Outlook Making Progress Vs. Gmail
No, GMail users are not going to jump ship. Very few 'floozies' here. Many will, however pick up an Outlook address as an additional account. Your email address says a lot about YOU. One my use different accounts / addresses for social, business or family use etc. .AOL, Hotmail & Yahoo, etc. (IMHO) tend to be viewed as social / informal media. I would not advise attempting to do any serious business with it. (Especially a job application or business transaction) As a new contender, Outlook starts with a 'clean slate' (tabula raza?) Nice for Hotmail users to get a 'free' status upgrade. Meanwhile, I like my GMail interface, where I am working now. I may have over a dozen email addresses that I have picked up over the years and they all forward here. I do also have Thunderbird loaded and active to insure that I have everything stored locally. Like my esteemed colleague always says, " Your mileage may differ ". Have a good day.
