Re: Outlook Express being replaced? Or..?

Oh. Well, if that's the case, I guess this doesn't have anything to do with 
me and my Outlook Express usage. Hope you're right. Thanks for responding.

Subject: Re: Outlook Express being replaced? Or..?


the root of what's going on right now if I'm not mistaken is that microsoft
is turning off webdav access to hotmail. This means that outlook express
people cannot access hotmail. They have to use windows live mail if they
want to access hotmail accounts. Pop3 accounts, aka gmail, and any other
account you configured manually will still work, microsoft is just turning
off the old support for hotmail off. Honestly it was a long time comming. It
went pay years ago, and that was the death null for me.
