    I was just logging into my hotmail account, and a page popped up saying to try out Windows Live Mail, and that hotmail will be taken over by windows live mail?

    oh dear :( 

    I already hate windows live messenger because its incredibly slow, and loaded with so much useless junk I'll never use.

    I managed to keep an older version of MSN on my computer back home, but my girlfriend has windows live messenger on her computer, and it really sucks.

    is the end of Hotmail? I've had my crazy__drummer@hotmail.com email since 1997!

    Not the end, it's just a new interface, kind of like the horrid Yahoo! Mail beta interface.

    sorry, the hotmail service still works

    what I meant is, I think they are changing it to windows live mail, and getting rid of the hotmail name all together, if im not mistaken

    like how windows live messenger is taking over MSN messenger

    its all the same thing pretty much, but there are changes, which so far from what I've seen, have been worse, and slower then the previous versions

    If you actually tried it before complaining, you would have found that the lite version is almost exactly the same as the current hotmail interface.

    Nowhere, your complaining about Live Mail on the misconception that your going to have to use a more resource heavy interface.

    Man...I turned pale when I saw this post...nothing wrong with mine either. KA, what's the problem with hotmail? I'm a IT dummy so can ya be specific? :D  One of the drawbacks I have encountered with hotmail is that I can't or have failed to received some e-mails that my friends sent me.

    I've been using Windows Live Mail for a while now and I'd never go back to the classic Hotmail interface.

    Windows Live Messenger, on the other hand... :yuck

    Which is why Windows Live Mail is better than Hotmail. It comes with 2 Gb storage space.

    Gmail is getting close to 3 gigs tho, so they're still one step ahead.

    I've always installed MSN explorer and used messenger as a bundle. Never had an @hotmail.com Always had @msn since i use the msn explorer to sign in and out of messenger. Good thing I didn't have an @hotmail! Live messenger is ok. it's not very different from older versions really. Just a new name and new features. At least they kept the layout virtually the same! Not like that new IE!
