2004, beta days. A very kind person gave me an invite (back when you only got 2 or 5 invites).

Still use it as my main email account.

One of my biggest regrets was using my name for my email address with no numbers or anything weird like that. It's a fairly common name, so on a daily basis I get emails from people mistakingly sending to [email protected] instead of [email protected] I've received incredibly personal emails. A year ago a lawyer from Texas sent me a contract meant for a couple divorcing which detailed their financial arrangements. Crazy.

January 2006. I remember I always wanted one before that but none of my friends had invite codes. The day I finally got an invite code, I was ecstatic and full of joy. It was a magical day.

First email in my inbox is from August 2003? EDIT: Different email account that was linked. So probably 2004 or 2005? Got a beta invite.

I've had my OG Hotmail account since 2006.

I first used it to make an Xbox Live account.

It's filled with so much spam and shit and I haven't checked it in 3 years probably.

oops, this is Gmail, not Hotmail.

I don't have the Welcome mail, but my oldest email is from September 29th 2004 so sometime before then. This was when you could only get in with an invite
