Windows Live Mail Desktop (Beta) Screenshots September 28, 2006

Posted by sk in Computers & Internet, Microsoft, screenshots, Technology and Software, Windows Live Mail Desktop.

These are screenshots of Version 8.0.1034 released a few days back.


A separate mailbox is created for each account. This is a pretty useful feature wlm2that has existed in Thunderbird for some time now. All e-mails are grouped together in the folder “Browse all mail”. I have no idea why I have 90 total unread mails and only 82 unread mails in all inboxes. I’d love to know how that’s possible! It’s easy to add e-mail accounts – simply click on the “Add an e-mail account” link and the wizard will take care of you. You can also configure News settings by clicking on the news tab at the top. There’s also an RSS tab where you can read RSS feeds. The Contacts tab brings up Windows Live Contacts (your hotmail contacts) and the Calendar tab opens your Hotmail calendar in an internet browser.

It’s easy to add search folders to “Browse all mail” folder. Simply right click on browse mail and select the Search folders from the list.


Here’s an example of an RSS feed in WLMD.
