Hotmail turned 10 years old last week. I logged into my Live account and realized that I registered my Hotmail address on November 25, 1997...almost 9 years ago! It was my very first email address, and I still use it as my Windows Live Messenger ID today.

Email has become such a big part of our lives, it's hard to imagine how we did without it. Remember sending letters to friends and family by snail-mail and waiting for several days, and sometimes even weeks before you got back a response? Do you remember when you got your first email address, and how awestruck you were at the nearly instantaneous speed of delivery? :)
