Exclusive opportunities to make bold statements

Outlook.com combines the best of Outlook, Hotmail, and Skype to offer a fresh, clutter-free environment for communicating with family, friends, and colleagues. Keeping up with email is a snap, thanks to Outlook.com’s clean design and a fluid interface that lets people easily share files, photos, and more.


Outlook.com ad experiences are designed with both advertisers and consumers in mind. Located on the right side of users’ email, both versaTiles and the Skyscraper are fully integrated into the user experience.


versaTiles is a clean, tiled ad experience that allows for video and engaging image fly-outs, while Skyscraper is a 160x600 standard ad, giving you a large visual footprint to deliver your message.
