Hotmail also supports many of the keyboard shortcuts that you’re used to in Outlook, such as Ctrl+N for a new message, and Ctrl+Enter to send a message. And if you’re one of the millions of people who’ve recently switched from Yahoo! Mail or Gmail to Hotmail, we’ve also made popular shortcuts from those email services work in Hotmail. So # (from Gmail) can be used to delete a message and N (from Yahoo! Mail) will create a new message. To switch your inbox from using standard Hotmail shortcuts to Gmail or Yahoo! shortcuts, go to the keyboard shortcuts options page from your inbox.

The Hotmail team has also fixed some common issues in hotmail including how the Back button works, and how attachments get saved with your email drafts. If you happen to accidentally delete a message, it is now possible to recover some lost messages through a new link in the Deleted folder.

  • Hotmail Alias Email Addresses Makes It Simple To Manage, Sort Emails Coming From Different People

    Hotmail is a no doubt one the great email services which actually provides features like active view and some other great new features introduced recently. Apart from these cool features hotmail now supports aliases which can be really useful, let me tell you how this feature can be helpful for a person using hotmail. For example there is person named Tarun who is connected to different sets of people as business people, casual friends, family and others and these groups of people email him on his hotmail email address.


    Now imagine if all these different messages were to come to just one e-mail address and then they segregated themselves in “different folders” depending on the context. It would really make Tarun like simple. To address this, Hotmail team has rolled out new features Hotmail Aliases with which you can now add up to five new aliases a year and up to fifteen aliases in total – all this with just one single Hotmail id. Sample becomes,, and for different selected sites that Tarun chooses.

    With Hotmail Aliases you can actually control what you want to show and tell, and what you want to conceal. The Hotmail and some other email services allow users to add a plus sign (‘+’) and a descriptive word to the first part of your email address. Email sent to this alias will still be delivered to your inbox or to a particular folder. However, with the plus addresses that many services offer, it’s still very easy to determine your actual email address, much against your wish! But with Hotmail Aliases it’s exactly as you want it to be. It lets you create completely different email addresses that you can use to receive email into your primary account without anyone knowing what your primary email address is

    In order to enable this cool new feature of hotmail aliases, follow the procedure below.
