Happy 1st birthday Outlook.com! Microsoft gives away 'celebration packages' to mark the big day

Time sure goes fast. It’s hard to believe but it’s been a year since Outlook.com came out of preview. To celebrate the one year anniversary, Microsoft has created a video showing the new features and changes it has made to its popular webmail service.

"One year ago today, Outlook.com came out of preview and rolled out to people worldwide. It’s been a great year. We’ve learned a lot, heard great feedback from customers and continue to work every day to deliver the most personal and productive email service. We believe more than ever that Outlook.com is the best email choice for people around the world", Microsoft says.

And of course, what would a birthday be without gifts? No, it’s okay, you don’t need to buy Outlook.com anything -- Microsoft is the one doing the giving. Use the hashtag #OutlookTurnsOne on Twitter and the company will randomly select participants throughout the day to receive Outlook.com celebration packages. Quite what these packages contain isn’t specified.

Do you use Outlook.com? If so, what do you like best about it?
