Outlook.com left preview a few weeks ago, and as part of that, we shared that we'd start to upgrade the hundreds of millions of people using Hotmail to the new, modern Outlook.com experience. We had done multiple pilots during the preview period and learned a ton. Overall, the upgrade has been going very well - people have upgraded much faster than we had expected. The vast majority of people using our services have had a smooth experience during this time and are enjoying the new Outlook.com experience. That said, we had an issue yesterday and wanted to provide you with a deeper look at what happened.
Our latest update for the Outlook Hotmail Connector--which connects your Hotmail with Outlook--includes support for HTTPS protocol, a standard for sensitive content. HTTPS helps keep your private information private, which is why it's commonly used for example by banks, merchants, certificate verification processes, etc.).
To start to use HTTPS with your Hotmail account, install the latest version of Outlook Hotmail Connector. No other changes are required in Outlook or on the Windows Live site. Keep reading for the details, links, and install how-to's.
