Microsoft’s Hotmail is getting a major update with plenty of new features and improving the ones that already exist!
Hotmail is currently the most popular email service around the world, and we’ll be seeing a major makeover after a long time. Microsoft has been planning for this one for a while now.
It’s best to keep changing your passwords after every few days. And since hackers, spammers target the most used services like Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger.
Since, both the services use the same Windows Live ID, you can change the password for both of these services from your Windows Live Profile.
Adding photos to email messages is the most basic feature that almost all email services offer. You can add (and show) multiple photos in your email messages without adding them as attachments.
Back in August, Windows Live Hotmail team temporarily took down the Photo upload tool and did not let you add photos to the body of your email messages.
Unlike Gmail, Windows Live Mail (formerly known as Hotmail) never allowed POp3 access for its free users. This feature was one of the most wanted feature by Live Mail users.
Omar Shahine, lead program manager for Windows Live Hotmail, recently told that the Live Mail team would be releasing POP3 access for its users. Not all users, but to a few countries first which include United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Japan etc.
Soon Microsoft is going to release new features for its services in the third wave of Windows Live updates. A couple of days ago I wrote about the leaked upcoming version of Windows Live Messenger 9.
Today I came across the Windows Live Hotmail promotion site which tells about all the new goodies that we’ll see in the next wave of Windows Live updates.
There has been another leakage from the Windows Live Messenger team. Previously, an initial alpha release was leaked which introduced some interesting new features.
And once again, another build was leaked on torrents and underground forums spreading it like wild fire. The latest build of Windows Live Messenger 9 is 14.0.3921.717. The latest build features a much more clear, colourful and stylish interface.
The Live Search Webmaster Tools was launched last year in beta which is similar to Google Webmaster Tools and provides some statistics about how Live Search crawls and index your site.
Live Search Webmaster Tools recently got a major update and has finally moved out of Beta. They have also introduced some new features that can help webmasters gather some statistics about how their websites are being crawled by Live Search bots and help them improve their ranking.
Recently, while browsing the Messenger Plus! Live skins database, I stumbled across a very cool Facebook skin that can be used on Windows Live Messenger (formerly knows as MSN Messenger).
I’m a regular Facebook and Windows Live Messenger user. So it was nice to have that new WLM skin for a change. I was tired of the usual default skin.
Messenger Plus! Live is a freeware and the most popular add-on for Windows Live Messenger. It adds tons of features and extras to WLM with which you are bound to have a better and enhanced user-experience. You can add auto-reply status messages, skins, tabbed-chatting windows, multi-MSN and tons of other features.You can also add custom sounds and additional smileys using Messenger Plus! Live.
