Microsoft today unveiled a subscription-based version of its Outlook email client. Dubbed Microsoft Office Outlook Live, the offering is designed to combine Office Outlook with MSN Hotmail in the US, the UK and Canada.
Marking the first time that a Microsoft Office product has been made available as a downloadable subscription service, Outlook Live aims to allow customers to view and manage email accounts, contacts and calendars from any PC connected to the internet.
An Outlook Live subscription gives customers the latest version of Office Outlook 2003 for Subscription Services, plus 2GB of online storage, the ability to send 20MB attachments, and spam and virus protection for an "introductory price" of $44.95 per year until 19 April. The regular price will be $59.95 per year.
"Outlook Live is the most advanced consumer email service available from Microsoft," said Blake Irving, corporate vice president for the MSN Communication Services and Member Platform Group at Microsoft.
