Windows Live Mail M7 beta is the next to face the public

July 25th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

I know I know, it’s been one hell of a busy day for Windows Live… yes I know it all kicked off being a Monday morning and all and yes, there is still a little more of Live to come, but as yet, Windows Live Mail M7 (Milestone 7) has been rolled out to all users using the software.

As Darren wrote only a few days ago on Liveside (check out the article here), we now have some of these:

  • Easier signing in: you can now sign up and sign in far easier with Windows Live ID
  • Optimised for connection: will give you the option to use a light version of the software if you have a slow connection, to mkae your experience better and easier
  • Updated Today page: with a storage meter that is new in this build, updated contacts and seamless links to your latest updated contacts Windows Live Spaces
  • Imaging in mail: ability to upload and send photos just as you can in Hotmail and Spaces
  • Spell checking: although only spell checks the first 2,000 characters (set to change), you can still turn it off if you wish
  • Lingustics: available in 12 different languages including Scandinavia, Chinese, Korean and Thai
  • Clickety click click: checkboxes are back, with the ability to select all and untick all from a single button

Go and check it out now – those already using it, signin to Windows Live Mail, or those who are not can signup and wait for an invitation. Over 6.7 million users are using it (latest figures), so why not join the cult? 😛
