Windows Live Hotmail to launch Monday?

Posted by David Hunter at 8:19 PM ET.

We haven’t heard about the Windows Live version of Microsoft’s old standby Hotmail since Microsoft decided to keep the Hotmail name in February. Now Elizabeth Montalbano is reporting for the IDG News Services that Windows Live Hotmail is about to go live:

Microsoft Corporation on Monday will finally bring its completely revamped version of its popular online e-mail service out of beta and into full release.

According to sources familiar with the company’s plans, Microsoft has been quietly rolling out version 1 of Windows Live Hotmail in smaller international markets such as Belgium and the Netherlands to test the new system. Monday’s rollout give U.S. users and the other estimated 250 million Hotmail subscribers around the world access to the application, sources said.

Microsoft Thursday declined to comment through its public relations agency.
