Though Outlook Mail is still in Beta and on trial form, and will be updated every now and then; it will take much more than this very much revamped version to catch up with Yahoo Mail; let alone, Gmail. Gmail, is still the best free or paid webmail service out there. Except for a few changes here and there, what Microsoft is doing now with its email service, Google pioneered and did with Gmail over seven years ago; and ever since, Gmail regularly refines even more, offering new superb features and becoming even better. Probably, Microsoft would need years to catch up where Gmail is right now. And unlike Microsoft, Google has been constant, firm and solid in giving excellent and the best email service for free; and keeping the same name for its email service since its inception: Gmail.
