Microsoft Offers Outlook Bundled with Paid Email Service

Microsoft announced today that it is about to start offering a stand-alone version of Outlook, separate from Office, which includes both a copy of Outlook and a subscription to either a Hotmail or MSN email account.In September Microsoft discontinued its service which had allowed users to connect to their Hotmail and MSN accounts for free using Outlook and Outlook Express.
