I'm not surprised. Gmail has been the go-to service for a while. Microsoft's relaunched Outlook.com is pretty great, but the company hasn't done anything to market it.

Every Android has a mandatory GMail account for using the market place and hotmail is on the way out, being replaced by the new Outllook platform.

So, no surprise really.

GMail is fairly naff though. I have one for my tablet but never look at it.

This.

Verizon forced me to make a gmail account, I still have it and like it way more then yahoo, its nice and simple, no ads slamming my face. Not to say there is anything wrong with hotmail.

I only keep a hotmail account to act as a contact account should my gmail become compromised.
In all honesty, hotmail seems to mark a lot of legitimate email as spam.

People are still using HotMail?
Windows Live Messenger is legit :|

I think it lets you use other emails to register though. I seen numerous logins from people using gmail accounts among other that weren't yahoo or windows live emails.

I prefer my Gmail over Hotmail. I only seem to get spam through my Hotmail account.
Why don't you do what I did in like 2004 switch your spam filter on in hotmail and only emails that are on your approved list get in. The rest go into the junk mail filter!
