Its taken over my bay too! I don't wanna have this! I can't make fun of Frank anymore with all his hotmail this, msn that, microsoft vista this, windows xp that! dude i feel old saying hoooootmail, eww it gives me the chills! i hope windows live people seeing this right now, ya hear! its already a long name, why longer!!!! i think im gonna cry! i think its worthless for @live.com now because its just hotmail redesigned, why does microsoft screw with there perfect ideas!!! anybody agre that this name is discusting????

Update is on bay105 for @live.com email. And one more surprise, you have the option to switch back to classic hotmail for @live.com email addresses.

Bay120 has been updated with the Windows Live Hotmail branding here.

I'm guessing Microsoft will allow users to choose between @hotmail and @live (therefore giving a bigger choice of email addresses). I'm hoping so anyway - otherwise I'll be one of the few with an @live address.

Darn, it's impossible now to choose the bay you want with just changing the url... Stupid Bay117 doesn't have M10 yet..

Yea me too. The new fonts aren't bad, but the previous one's looked better.

Yeah same here. I thought the font thing was only happening to me because I'm on Mac.

You can't change the bay in the url anymore. Every time I do, it redirects back to 110 for me. Used to be able to change it and it'd load the new stuff.

Edit: Just noticed that was already said.

Edit 2: It seems I already have it.

117 has it, I don't like it. I think I like Live Mail less and less everytime they do a new milestone.

It's still better then gmail though.

I agree about the name change! It is awful! I loved "Windows Live Mail" because it went well with the names "Live Messenger" and "Live Mail desktop" You don't see them having "Live Hotmessenger" and "Live Hotmail desktop" do you? No. That would be even more horrible anyway, but I hate inconsistencies!

What everyone needs to do is go to: http://feedback.live.com and lick on "Windows Live Mail" and tell them that the name change is horrible and then they will hopefully change it back.

I think, secretly, they may only be calling it "Windows Live Hotmail" temporarly for about a year to try and get the old Hotmail users transitioned much mre comforatably and so they are not confused. Then in about a year or so, hopefully they will change it back to "Windows Live Mail". Does anyone else think they might be doing this?

About the font: I quite like it. It will take a lil bit of time to get used to it, but I love the size of the message subjects, etc.

I also love the new Windows Live Messenger intergration where you can click on the new buddy icons in an e-mail message to open a WLMessenger window and talk! You can also see if they are online and offline - This is brillaint and I am one of the ones who suggested it! :-D Let's hope they can extend that to include it in the contact list in the next version!

Also LiveSide has a new article up guys: http://www.liveside.net/blogs/main/archive...mail-going.aspx

In that it says WLH have officially announced that it will be released within "a few weeks"!!!!!!!!! Fan-tastic news! Finally!

Anyway just to confirm to you all, bays 105 and 116 have been updated today!
