To check email on Hotmail, users log in to their accounts at Outlook.com, and the inbox, with all incoming emails, is presented. The junk folder is just beneath the inbox. This is where unsolicited emails are found, but sometimes important emails may end up here by mistake.
Users can directly navigate to Outlook, the email service that has replaced Hotmail. The same log-in credentials from Hotmail are used, and messages sent to the Hotmail address are found in the inbox at Outlook. A user may voluntarily acquire a new Outlook address to replace his existing Hotmail one.
