Microsoft Connect 2.4 has been released…

July 29th, 2007 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

With the following major change:

  • Support for Web based newsgroup

It uses Ajax but it’s like Live Mail, loads slow – compared to Gmail.

You can access the web based newsgroup by going to the Newsgroup link, after opening the beta program page.

There’s some other minor changes in Connect but it’s not worth noting here.

Any comments about the new web based newsgroup? 🙂

    I’ve already stated some problems with it but it seems impossible to get in contact with the Connect team.

    1. It doesn’t use your email address, it just uses ConnectUser. Pull the email from the user profile!

    2. It UTF-8 encodes the From and Subject headers REGARDLESS if they could be represented perfectly well WITHOUT doing that. I’d much perfer if they checked whether the persons name and their subject could be represented in ASCII first, and if it can’t, only then go for encoding it.

    Again, there is nowhere I can tell the team about their mistakes.

    Hey Michael, thanks for your feedback!

    Yeah I got to agree that the Connect team might have missed out the 2 issues that you wrote about, but have you joined Connect Website Improvement program ( and submit your feedback there?
