Windows Live Mail – the final user interface released to testers

October 5th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Well we’re nearly there – Live Mail is very nearly ready to be released (set for the end of October/start of November) and with that comes the brand new live.com, live.co.uk (and other locales supported) and windowslive.com addresses for people to use. Still not sure on how messages and emails will be migrated, but that’ll come as soon as possible.

  • New flair effects in Windows Live Mail, as well as many other differnet themes
  • Firefox compatible and works perfectly fine in Windows Internet Explorer 7
  • Slick and new “Windows Live” theme and style
  • Faster interface, faster running and easier to switch from one folder to another
  • Many bug fixes and interface tweaks finalised
  • Search support tweaked and enhanced to search Mail as well as the web
  • Spam filter greatly improved
  • Yellow and red bars for suspicious and dangerous messages updated and tweaked.

    Still with the huge ad at the top, eh…? That kinda ruins it for me, they could have tried to make the ads a bit more discreet… I’m not saying “remove all the pub”, I’m just saying it could be much less intrusive.

    still all the pictures/icons never load at one go and the entire page should be allowed to scroll, not just the left pane.

    Yeh Andre, however those who have MSN Premium (so you pay a subscription of about £15 a year), you’ll have the option or it’ll do it automatically, to turn adverts off. This’ll apply to most if not all of the Live services – we already see it in Live Spaces; those with MSN Premium can untick that little box in the settings to turn off adverts in their Space 🙂
