    Windows Live Mail and live.co.uk question


    I use Windows Live Mail and have e mail address [email protected]
    Someone mentioned wlm would stop after the end of June.
    I don't use wlm to connect to outlook.
    So, after 30th June will I be still able to use wlm and use my [email protected] email?
    Even if the answer to the above is yes do we think the writing is on the wall for wlm anyway?
    Thanks.

    I have been using WLM since its introduction, and I plan to keep on using it.
    I have a pop account and a Hotmail account configured in it.
    If something goes awry on my Hotmail account, I can always access my Hotmail account via my web browser. Does not bother me.

    Writing on the wall ?
    Maybe. There are always other email clients capable to do the same job.
    I'll never use the Mail app. It sucks.
    Some members recommend eM Client.
    Check it out, for future reference.

    MS is moving Outlook.com (and affiliated addressees - Hotmail, Live) to use the Office 365 infrastructure for sync. This migration has been taking place since Feb, but the rollout/goLive for all Outlook.com accounts is 16 June.

    If you use the DeltaSync mechanism to sync WLM & Outlook.com, then that will stop working.
    Look at the WLM eMAil account Properties > Servers tab

    If you use POP3 or IMAP, your eMail will be fine.

    WLM & Outlook.com Calendars, however, will no longer sync.
