Official Windows Messenger Live BETA Thread

Recommended Posts

So far there's 3 classes of invites:

------------------------------------------------------------------

1st-gen

Tier 1 (14/12/2005)

------------------------------------------------------------------

2nd-gen

Tier 1 (18/12/2005)

Tier 2 (6/1/2006)

------------------------------------------------------------------

1st-gen Tier 1 invites are the "official Microsoft 1st gen invites", which give Connect access, and come with 2+3 (or 5, depending on when you accepted the invite) 2nd-gen Tier 1 invitations. In total, a 1st-gen Tier 1 invitee should have had 15 invites to give out.

2nd-gen Tier 1 invitees were people who were given invites by 1st-gen Tier 1 people between the 18th Dec and 6th Jan, and now all have 5 2nd-gen Tier 2 invites to give out. These people don't have Connect access, though. All unsent 2G T1 invitations as of 6/1/2006 become 2G T2 invitations.

2nd-gen Tier 2 invitees were people who were given invites on the 6/1/2006, and they have no invites to give out, so far. These people don't have Connect access either. If you were invited after the 6th of January 2006, you received a 2G T2 invitation.

Sharing only works if your passport account is set to USA.

The problem I got with WLM 8 is that when I've read my new e-mail, it still displays the number of unread e-mail of my Hotmail

#1 current reported bug. If you let it create a sharing folder they won't get the download link. Don't create the folder and you will be fine.

Hey,

Just got in on the action here on Saturday, I noticed the problem with the contacts not appearing, and after a bit of digging around located:

C:\Documents and Settings\[networklogin]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Messenger\[passport_email]\Contacts

You'll have two folders in here - one with your messenger login, eg adaytay@hotmail.com (that's mine), and the other will be adaytay@hotmail.com.shadow.

Now my contact list came back by rebooting the machine, but that of course might not work for everyone!!

HTH,

Ad.

PS - couldn't find the proper thread for this, but got a few invites available, PM with ur email address and I'll send you an invite tonight (around 9pm GMT), first come first served, sorry.

Sorry, but I'm really not that impressed with the Beta at all!

To me it just seems a whole lot more bloated and hard to navigate than 7.5.

Granted, it has a couple of cool new features, but I'd be grateful if someone could point out to me what's supposed to be so good about it... :unsure:

Windows Live Mail is ok. However I have only tried it out for a short period of time becuase I have not receivbed an invite. I don't like the extra BETA News tab, that is annoying and I would rather not have that on my daily mail box.
