  Guys, please switch to Gmail. Not only is the web interface is accessible, 
especially in the basic HTML view, but you've also got practically unlimited 
storage, and, in my view, it's much better than Hotmail in terms of filtering 
spam. Also, unlike Hotmail, you can access Gmail via pop for free, so if you 
didn't like the web interface there's an alternative. You won't regret 
switching. Just go to Google for more information and, if you want, create a 
Google account or register for Gmail using your existing account. Hope that

    Hello fellow listers,

    Are any of you having success with using JFW with the new Hotmail Live?

    I tried to use it with JFW 7.0, and found it to be almost completely 
inaccessible. When I attempted to compose a message, JFW was unable to read the 
text I had typed into the message body while I was in forms mode. I was able to 
rout JAWS to PC cursor to read the text, but that's a hassle. 

    I tried to include a file attachment, but couldn't find a link or button 
anywhere, so I finally gave up.

    I even tried switching to what they call the "classic Hotmail Live," hoping 
it would be more accessible, but it was no better. Finally, I went to the 
options page and switched back to the "MSN Hotmail" and that gave me back the 
old familiar (and accessible) Hotmail. But about once each week, I am being 
prompted after logging into my hotmail account, to either log into the new 
Hotmail Live inbox, or click a button that says "Remind me later." I fear that 
at some point, Microsoft is going to force everyone using the old version of 
hotmail to switch to this inaccessible "Hotmail Live" version.

    If any of you have figured out how to get this new version to work with 
JAWS, could you please tell me how you did it? Thanks!
