Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta is public


I've been testing this for a while now and hadn't noticed it had gone public beta. Live Mail Desktop is like Outlook Express on steroids with a cool UI and integrated junk and phishing filters plus RSS feed reader. That's at least 4 RSS readers I have on my PC now πŸ™‚

I'm using Outlook 2007 for my mail in the main and RSS feeds but if you use Hotmail this is a pretty cool application that I'd recommend checking out for taking email offline. It even has a built in blogging feature and Active Search which looks like a cross between Instant Search in Outlook 2007 and search.

    Hey Steve, quick question do you know if this supports sending and reciiving email from multiple live mail accounts? The reason I ask is I am also using the and hosting my domain’s email there and I have 3 email accounts I use for myself. One for professional, one for family and friends and then one for everything where all the spam goes as well.
