Outlook vs Outlook.com vs Outlook Mail
Posted on 2016-08-03
A friend of mine has 2 Hotmail accounts. When he accesses them in a browser, one of them shows up in an "Outlook.com" window, the other in a window labelled "Outlook Mail".
In the Outlook.com window he can do anything you can usually do with emails and text. In the Outlook Mail window, he can look at attachments, but he is unable to select and copy any text. Hence, whenever he wants to do that he has to forward it to the Outlook.com account. In both instances the browser he uses is IE 10.
Does anyone know what this "Outlook Mail" thing is? I have never come across it before. Is there anything he can do to migrate that account to Outlook.com?
As a rant on the side, I support a number of people of all backgrounds, and I have grumbled for a long time about M$'s use of the names Outlook, Outlook Express, Outlook.com - and now Outlook Mail. Finding help on the internet for any of them is extremely awkward as you have to wade through irrelevant answers for all the other flavours,
