Windows Live Mail desktop beta refresh

March 30th, 2007 by Zack Whittaker

With little news coming over the networks and the wires, Windows Live Mail desktop beta has been refreshed and somehow rolled out. Now this is very confusing, as a little time earlier, my application crashed and caused me to restart.I restarted, and the advertisement pane just vanished. So maybe now the final version won’t have advertisements? Who knows, the adverts are still around on my Windows Live Hotmail and Spaces pages, so who knows.

The new build appears to be 8.0.1226, three builds up from the previous version reported here. No differences are noticed as yet – the beta tags are still in place, and as of 00:43 BST in England, LiveSide hasn’t reported it yet – as it seems, we’re the first people. Check out the screenies below.

    Yep, this build is the February refresh that went out via Microsoft Update. Move along. Nothing to see here.

    Yeh Zack, i’m afraid this has been out for quite a while.

    This release has an annoying feature that makes me crazy: every time it does a send/receive, it is visible on the screen and actually disrupts typing, etc to the window in focus. BAH!
