Hotmail addresses still get modern email software - it is essentially the same online client that office 365 uses, and it works well.

I dare say it is more powerful than gmail and just as modern. In fact, much more modern; gmail hasn’t changed much in the last 5 years (or longer).

I have an outlook.com address primarily, but it’s tied to the same hotmail address that I used back in 2006. Yes, Hotmail gives you multiple email addresses for free, and gives you all sorts of options for managing them (and yes, they work for sign in).

Yes, I know all that. But I also know the kind of impression a Hotmail-address is likely to give. So will conclude that a hotmailer either doesn't know or doesn't care about the impression aspect. All part of the picture.
