The new Hotmail Connector for Outlook was released a few weeks back, oddly I haven't seen anything written about it, hence this post. The connector gives the ability to use Outlook 2003 or 2007 with LiveMail/Hotmail natively. For those of you who were big Outlook Express fans *gag*, this was a native feature but died in Vista with the removal the app. Additionally, to replace Outlook Express and all the security vulnerabilities, Microsoft has just released Microsoft Live Mail Beta which is a fantastic, appealing rich client! It is part of a larger integrated offering call Windows Live.
Everyday this week, I will be giving an individual overview of each of the new Live.com offerings! Tell you friends! Did I mention all of this stuff is free as in beer ? --VT
