I am just wondering if any-one has tried out the beta version of Windows Live Mail. I signed up for it about two weeks ago and i received a invitation to start using it today which I am and it seems alot better than the standard MSN Emailing system.
Look foward to hear from any-one thats tried it out
and have been testing it for the past six months or so.
During that time it's improved almost daily, and although I'm not a big user of web-mail services I have to say I'm very impressed with the current version - it's as good as webmail gets in my opinion.
Microsoft have improved their whole approach to product development, almost beyond recognition. Years ago the atitude was very much "Here it is, we hope you like it, please hand over a whacking big slab of cash". I've been on testing panels for every major Microsoft release since Windows 95, and I've watched the company's involvement with real-world testers improve steadily during that period, up to the point where I now receive personal emails from members of the development team, asking me what I think, and whether I have any suggestions, etc.
It's a great way to develop products, and I wish that other software companies would take note.
