| August 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

Outlook.com has arrived to compete with Google and Hotmail. The best thing of Outlook.com is that you can create multiple email addresses on the go and the mails will be delivered to one account in separate folder.

In easy language, suppose you have an individual mail account and you want one more public account where people can send you mails without knowing your primary mail address. For example, anil@outlook.com is my primary email address and I want you to send mails to widefide@outlook.com; In this case, If you send mails to widefide@outlook.com, they will be delivered to me in my primary account in one separate folder. As simple as that.
