Outlook.com gains 10 million users in two weeks

A few weeks ago Microsoft [MSFT] launched Outlook.com which was designed to be a Hotmail.com replacement. Within the first two weeks of launch Microsoft has now received over 10 million new accounts on the service with the latest figures showing a peak of 1 million of those within a 24 hour period.

Although 10 million registrations within a 24 hour period is very good, many of those will be the so called vanity registrations where many people register a number of accounts to jump on popular names such as [email protected].

Either way, Microsoft still looks like it is off to a good start with the service.

A full announcement can be found over at Microsoft and a video presentation of what Outlook.com can do is found embedded above.
