The difference between Hotmail and Gmail
« on: September 03, 2021, 06:39:24 pm »

Both Gmail and Hotmail are free platforms that provide email services. They do have some differences though. Hotmail is highly secured compared to Gmail. Hotmail has a medium to scan users’ emails. Hotmail offers more connections than the Gmail. Commonly, the Hotmail connects to Twitter, Google, and others while Gmail supports only a few social media. In Hotmail, it is possible to mark a message as reading with one click, unlike the Gmail. Hotmail offers viewing and editing services, for the word documents and the Excel documents. Gmail has a limited space of a maximum of 15GB while the Hotmail offers unlimited storage space. The Gmail accounts are very volatile, unlike the Hotmail accounts. When a user does not use the account for nine months in Gmail, it will be blocked.

Hotmail sticks to the traditional folders to separate and organize their emails. This is what is commonly used in other email service providers and email applications. Gmail departed from using folders and devised the use of tags in segregating the emails. Hotmail users can preview the message before opening it up.

1. Hotmail is the first free web email provider that was eventually acquired by Microsoft while Gmail is the newest of the big email service providers and is owned by Google

2. Gmail has small text ads while Hotmail has large ads with graphics for non-paying users

3. You can send files up to 20Mb with Gmail while you can only send 10Mb with Hotmail

4. Hotmail utilizes the traditional folders in organizing emails while Gmail uses tags

5. Hotmail offers a full preview of the message which is absent in Gmail
