gmail and other email programs are blocking the 'graphic' and 'link'...either set your email to veiw 'inline' graphics...or right click and view source...the link will look something like:

http://ideas.live.com/AcceptInvitation.asp...XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Ah thank you :)

lmao, exact same deal here guys. My Live portal after login is entirely in French. I've tried the .365 build with my passport and I receive the 'not authorized' error message.

My guess would be a wider release mid-tomorrow morning Seattle time. Looks like that button you get in the email authorizes your passport to use the v.13 protocol and login with .365

Then its gonna be a big problem...because beta 8.0.0365 will overwrite 7.5...however if the others logon with a different username and password....they should be alright....but its your call.

I am also from Canada. Here is an announcement from microsoft.beta.messenger.announcements:

Canadian beta testers!

We have a bug in ideas.live.com that will make it so all you will see is

French text when you go to the site. We are fixing the bug right now and

hope to have ready sometime tomorrow. In the meantime we are going to hold

off sending you the download/authorization link. I know this will disapoint

all of you who are following the newsgroups and wouldn't mind wading your

way through the French text. But there are hundreds of you who are not on

the newsgroups yet who will be suprised by this poor experience. Thanks for

your patience!

Does anyone else find this new version UGLY??? :wacko: I'm sorry; I ususally like the new versions of MSN Messenger. But this one has taken a definite turn away from where they were headed...

First Invations wont be out till next week probably... secondly if people go into the newsgroups for the beta there are download links in there for you all.. if u dont know how to get the newsgroups goto http://connect.microsoft.com and go to the WLM 8 Page and click community... and follow steps there...

Hope this helps people...
