Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta – Invitations

September 7, 2006

Alright, I’ve been ranting and raving about the Windows Live Mail Desktop application….. but I’ve been faithful to a beta release and gave all the feedback I could and am now quite happy with the product (no I’m not sucking up to get hired)…..

I do have invites though, if you haven’t tried it yet post a comment or send me an email and I’ll make sure to pass along an invite to you until they run out…..

Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta – Survey

August 23, 2006

I recently received a ten page survey on my experiences with Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta. Most of the questions were about usability and my overall impression of the features (RSS reader, photo integration, newsreader, etc). Overall I am impressed, the application is fairly responsive, it is easy to use and I can get into it and get through my mail quickly.

There still bugs, so it will be interesting to see how long the web 2.0 beta tag sticks around. My latest complaint is attachments….. yes over the last several days all hotmail Windows Live Mail email has been cleverly stripped of it’s attachments. Now this is fine for security, but my son’s school supply list is now MIA, some pictures I was hoping to see are MIA, ugh…. I know it’s in beta so I can’t complain too much, but it is really annoying that the bugs are very core to email usage (like replying and receiving attachments.

One thing about the survey was funny…. they forgot MS Office’s Outlook in the mail application category
