Microsoft offers users the option to block all ads in Outlook.com
There are many ways to get an ad-free email account these days, but in case ad blockers aren’t exactly your cup of tea, here’s a special Microsoft offer for Outlook and Hotmail.GHacks.net writes that those who pay for an annual $19.99 (€14.85) subscription will get a cleaner Hotmail and Outlook account, with no graphics ads and no account expiration.
Microsoft automatically suspends email accounts after 270 days of inactivity, but paying for such a subscription keeps your inbox accessible for 12 months.
Of course, some people believe that paying for such a service is more like a waste of money, especially given the fact that browsers usually come with more or less advanced ad-blocking options. But, in the end, buying a subscription seems to be the right way to do it.
