According to some leaked screenshots that has picked up, Microsoft Hotmail is receiving a new Metro look and perhaps a new name.

If you look at the screenshots available you can see that there is a new name for the mail service called “Newmail”. There has been a lot of rumors flourishing about this name, if Microsoft actually will change the name of their service. According to TechCrunch, the name “Newmail” is only a placeholder name and will not be a replacement for the Hotmail name. It looks like Microsoft is attempting to connect all their services such as Skydrive, Calendar and People, into a unified system. This most likely means that they will also change the appearance of these services as well.

For me, this is good news as I personally like the whole clean look of the Metro style 🙂
