Microsoft today introduced a new feature, a new type of interactive and dynamic email that runs on the Hotmail Active Views platform:

[…] There has simply been no way to run JavaScript code within email messages in such a way that it's isolated and not allowed to do malicious things on your computer. Hotmail is solving this problem with its new Active Views platform, technology that allows senders to run code securely in their email messages. It protects you AND gives you access to information on the sender's website through forms and inline actions built directly into the email itself. This keeps the content up to date and provides a more engaging and time-saving experience.

Active Views is launching today with partnerships from Orbitz and Monster.com, with additional partnerships with Netflix and LinkedIn coming soon.

Here's a video of Active Views in action:
