Costs associated with using HotmailÒ
*Hotmail is a free e-mail service, but there are generally costs associated in accessing the Internet.

  • Your Internet service provider will charge you for connecting to the Internet and your phone company will charge you the cost of a telephone call to connect to your Internet provider.
  • If you access the Internet at a cafe you will only be charged for the duration of your Internet connection (generally per hour).
  • Sometimes computer and Internet use at public libraries is free.

Hotmail will not charge you to access your inbox, read or send e-mails. This is one of the main advantages of having a Hotmail e-mail account.
