From attachments to slideshows

Hotmail's new "active view" uses Silverlight to allow photos to show in a fancy slideshow, as opposed to just as a series of attachments that need to be downloaded.

Opening Office docs via the Web

Office documents sent to Hotmail can be opened via Microsoft's new browser-based Office Web Apps, meaning that the recipient no longer needs their own copy of Office installed to view or edit documents.

Sweeping clean the in-box

Hotmail's new "sweep" feature lets users take all the messages from a particular sender and either delete them or sweep them into a particular folder. Optionally, that same action can be taken on future messages from the sender.
