SOFTWARE GIANT Microsoft will launch a major overhaul of its Hotmail email service next month.
The upgrade will include improvements to security, performance and how it deals with spam.
Microsoft sent an email about an event to be held on 3 October in New York and San Francisco, which said, "We listened. We learned. We reinvented Hotmail from the ground up."
"Forget everything you thought you knew about Hotmail. Just don't forget this date," the software giant added.
Whether the upgrade will be enough to entice users back from Gmail is another matter entirely. µ
