Microsoft’s Gmail Man Ad
It’s mostly for promoting their Office 365, an online Office Suite that directly competes with Google Apps which is still a few years ahead. It’s an old punch that doesn’t quite apply anymore, especially when comparing head-to-head with Google Apps Paid version, which doesn’t show ads at all. I also tend to agree with Google Operating System explaining that online email services already used algorithms to index messages to fight with Spam. If we want to blame, let’s blame the SMPT protocol, the foundation of email, that basically makes email messages so easy to be spied.

Frankly, it’s a long term debate that doesn’t seem to have a clear winner in a foreseeable future. To me, both serves me well, Outlook at work, Gmail the other. Therefore, you should use whatever works for you and whatever you feel comfortable to use. After all, email is just one of your tools that should make your work easier, more efficient.
