First hand on Windows Live Mail Desktop (Beta)

June 29th, 2006 by kenlin@HK [MVP]


Well, I have been approved to download and try the Windows Live Mail Desktop, the build I downloaded is v8.0.0774.  I installed and try to login by using my Windows Live ID and I got a lot of error, including cannot migrate my OE6 folders/files to WLMD, and also cannot find my Microsoft Live ID, and also cannot synchronize my folders/files from Windows Live(same as Hotmail).

And the outlook of WLMD is cool, much like Office Outlook, and also I can access Newsgroup from WLMD. However, I found out that I cannot adjust the width of the right panel. And I found it out that it is the area for Advertisement. If you are a paid user in Hotmail or later the Windows Live, then you have choose to disable the Advertisement panel.

As it is still in Beta, so error sometimes come up.
