I registered for the heck of it and then thought, this really isn't much different from GMail, I see no compelling reason to use it. Just checked it now (had forgotten about it) and discovered 8 messages in my inbox from Microsoft about how great W8 is.
I guess MS has a soft corner for me. I found just 2 mails about W8.
I find the UI cleaner than gmail. And Gmail keeps experimenting with some annoying interface.
For example their new experiment with the simple mail editor. It tries to emulate Outlook.com interface. Simply a poor attempt by google.

Yes, It is very clean and lightweight. also other services are also nicely integrated with the interface.
Also, Have you tried AOL Alto Mail[^]? Very nice UI, and it is just an interface and not a new email service from AOL. so you can use your Yahoo and Gmail Account with it. You can request an invite here.
Ya know, they could at least come up with something that's halfway entertaining to read.

I had a woman who would leave messages on my phone that started with “I enjoyed our evening together, I hope we can get together again soon” to “I would like to get in touch with you again.. as friends.” to “ if you don’t want to see me again, you could just let me know…” and “finally “I think this number is not your number, I must be bugging someone with these messages.”
Normally I would answer the phone to let people know that my number was is not the number they think, but she would leave the messages during the wee hours of the morning and I didn’t want to leave my phone on during the night. I felt bad for her, the fella had obviously made that number up.
We had a message left on our answering phone a few weeks ago inviting us to Auntie Jean's 60th birthday party. It sounded like a lovely do, she gave us directions, times, said we could bring the kids, the buffet was loads of different pies.
No idea who the woman or Auntie Jean were, I was going to the football that day with my brother but told the wife she and our daughter should go, cos whoever was supposed to be getting the message wouldn't.
