This email from Microsoft telling me I won't be

able to access my Hotmail emails through Outlook Express?

I have OE set up to show all my emails in my Inbox from my NTL address and also my Hotmail address.

Does this mean that I won't be able to see my Hotmail messages in OE anymore?

Yes. You'll just need to install Windows Live Mail

Well I have downloaded Windows Live Mail but haven't installed it yet.

If I install it now is it working or do I have to wait until the 30th June?

It will work straight away. It will import all of your messages etc from OE as well.

Thanks all. Giving it a go now.

Installed it all now and wished I hadn't.

Can I go back to OE?

WLM doesn't replace OE, so you can choose which you want to use....though shortly no Hotmail functionality in the latter.

Why do you not like WLM??

dogbreath1, thank you.

"Why don't I like it". Well, if I tell the truth, I don't really know.

OE seemed to be easier to use.

It is probably the same situation I was in when I was on Win98 SE. I kept getting told that Win XP was the way to go. I eventually changed to Win XP and now wouldn't go back to Win98SE.

I will stay with it for a few months. At least I know I can switch back to OE if I need to.
