    The amount of times I get 'We can't connect to Outlook at the moment. Please try again later.', I don't think it's going to work too well...

    Why are they integrating more things when their current feature set don't work properly? It took my girlfriend earlier today 30 minutes just so she could get at one bloody email!

    When a company's new product works worse than their previous product it's a depressing sign *cough* vista *cough* and they are just dumping more things into something that obviously can't cope.

    I keep having silverlight or whatever the plugin is crash on me when I am typing out e-mails. Luckily 80% of the time it saves it as a draft but still drives me mad!

    Totally agree - check out the comments on the "Outlook.Com" app on the Play store that replaced the Hotmail one; not exactly a collection of glowing praise!

    Actually, like many, I got forced to switch from the Hotmail app (which worked fine) to the Outlook equivalent (which is very annoying). So with that experience I'm dreading migrating my emails etc from Hotmail to Outlook. I installed the Skype app (to replace WLM) but haven't done anything really with it yet.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    I must have been lucky so far, as, since I switched to outlook.com I've not had any problems !
