Windows Live Hotmail gets an update

Thanks to the feedback of thousands of users who reported scrolling issues with the recent release of Windows Live Hotmail, Microsoft has rolled out another update to customers fixing the issue. Users can now revert back to the classic Hotmail scrolling interface by turning off their reading pane (Options -> Reading pane settings -> Off).

Microsoft has also added back the hotkey to allowing customers to open their messages in a new window by simply holding down the Shift key and clicking on the message. Customers are also seeing a return of the Today page when they sign into their Windows Live Mail account. To confirm that your bay is updated, you will see a message from the Windows Live Hotmail team when you sign-in to your Windows Live Hotmail account.

Microsoft has also announced that there will be further updates of Windows Live Mail in early 2009, including the new version of Web Messenger, increased number of messages shown at one time, and moving the advertisements to one side.
