  I received this notice tonight.  Has anyone received this and does anyone 
know anything about whether the new service is compatible with Jaws?  I wonder 
how difficult this will be to use and if there will be a lot to learn?

  Subject: Outlook Express Service Change

                    Dear Microsoft Outlook Express customer,

                    Thank you for using Microsoft® Outlook® Express. Our 
information indicates that you use Outlook Express to access a Windows LiveT 
Hotmail® e-mail account via a protocol called DAV (Distributed Authoring and 
Versioning protocol). DAV, like POP3 or IMAP, is the way that a mail client 
communicates with a web-based mail server.

                    As a valued customer, we want to provide advanced notice 
that as of June 30, 2008, Microsoft is disabling the DAV protocol and you will 
no longer be able to access your Hotmail Inbox via Outlook Express. As an 
alternative, we recommend that you download Windows Live Mail, a free desktop 
e-mail client that has the familiarity of Outlook Express and much more. This 
next generation of free e-mail software will allow you to easily manage 
multiple e-mail accounts-including Windows Live Hotmail, plus other e-mail 
accounts that support POP3/IMAP. Better yet, Windows Live Mail integrates well 
with other Windows Live services, and downloads in minutes. After you provide 
your user name and password, you will automatically be linked to your Hotmail 
account, providing continued access to your email and contacts. 

                    We encourage you to download Windows Live Mail at

                    And, to make your transition smoother, we've provided 
answers to frequently asked questions below.  

                    Again, thank you for your use of Outlook Express and we are 
confident that you'll be just as delighted with the new Windows Live Mail.

                    Your Windows Live Mail team

                    Frequently asked questions:

                    Why are we disabling DAV?

                    DAV is a legacy protocol that is not well suited for client 
access to large inboxes. Over time, as we've provided more e-mail storage to 
our users-and now offer 5GB inboxes for free-a more efficient access protocol 
is needed. 

                    What are we replacing DAV with?

                    We have developed a new, much more efficient protocol 
called DeltaSynch that is far superior to DAV especially for large e-mail 
inboxes. It enables email clients to only download changes since the last time 
the client polled the email server for changes. This is much more efficient and 
high performing than having to download all the headers in every folder as is 
the case with DAV. 

                    Is DeltaSynch compatible with Outlook Express?

                    The new protocol unfortunately is NOT supported by Outlook 
Express and support would require too many changes to the Outlook Express 

                    Is there a different or new mail client I can try that uses 

                    Microsoft is providing Windows Live Mail, a free e-mail 
client that has the familiarity of Outlook Express and much more. This free, 
next generation email client  enables users to easily manage multiple e-mail 
accounts including Windows Live Hotmail and other e-mail accounts that support 
POP3/IMAP. Windows Live Mail also integrates well with other Windows Live 
services, is optimized to work with Windows Live Hotmail, and offers:  

                      a.. Offline mail 
                      b.. Windows Live Hotmail account aggregation for those 
users with multiple Hotmail accounts 
                      c.. Account aggregation for POP and IMAP mail accounts 
                      d.. Rich photo-sharing capabilities 
                      e.. Advanced search via integration with Desktop Search 
                      f.. Safety tools (Anti-Virus scanning, anti-phishing, 
anti-spam features across aggregated accounts for customers who do not have an 
Anti-Virus product) 
                      g.. Integration with Windows Live services including 
Windows Live Spaces 
                      h.. RSS (Real Simple Syndication) feed aggregation 
                      i.. Ability to send SMS (short message service) text to a 
mobile phone from Windows Live Mail
                    Where can I download the new Windows Live Mail client?

                    You can download the new client at
