Windows Live Mail update

Still using WLM. No real complaints apart from: –

  • Ability to have a folder automatically delete items over a certain age. I could probably do something like this manually as a saved search in Vista
  • When you minimize to tray and then restore the window, it seems to automatically go to Inbox, even if this wasn’t the previously selected folder

Good things over and above Thunderbird: –

  • Excellent Windows Live Contacts "smart-client" application which integrates very tightly with Messenger; contact details are stored online on your Space
  • Integrated Vista search
  • Works with Hotmail out of the box

Things I would like to see added: –

  • A way to use online bookmarks / RSS feeds would be nice. I currently use Google Reader for my feeds so I can view them anywhere
