Switched from Outlook 2007 to Windows Live Mail

20 10 2007


Finally I have made my switch from Outlook 2007 to Windows Live Mail 🙂

Live Mail is really slick, easy to use and has the basic ingredients of what you may expect as a mail reader 😉

And also has a cool interface 😀

The only thing I miss with this Live Mail is integration of Live Events and publishing Calendar online. I do believe that Live Events will soon be integrated 😀

I have a customer who is deperate to connect to a single HOTMAIL account used for emergencies. They are however all running Terminal Services which Live mail does not appear to support. If I install Live Mail on the local client (i.e. before opening an RDP session) it works, but will not display any downloads over the RDP screen. If I install Outlook Connector it works (although scheduling seems a bit haphazard) but rules are not triggered by mail coming into the HOTMAIL inbox (although they work fine if triggered manually).
Using Messenger 2008 only seems to update the HOTMAIL counter if I click on it.

Is seems that there is no way to automatically generate an alert on a Terminal Services connected client when a mail is delivered to a HOTMAIL account.

1) Open outlook express 6 to import messages from outlook 2007
2) Then export your outlook express 6 to a .dbx file
2) Open WLM and import the resulting .dbx file

Hope this helps.
