I like it due to its compatibility with Windows and Windows Live Messenger.

You use it as your main webmail service?

Neither, I use Adblock Plus.

Got both of my accounts on the new look now :( One has been up since last week, my other account since today.

Must say i don't like it at all. The fonts are way to big. The ad-space is way more standing out now.

If i could, i would switch back directly!

EDIT: Got the font size fixed in my IE settings, looking much better now!

I cant use adblock plus now as im using flash player 10, adblock plus doesnt seem to support it :$

Microsoft does seem to be over the top with their ads, especially with the amount of profit they get.

Im not that keen on the new live hotmail UI, its slimmed down from the old one, but it feels too empty now and the fonts are too big. i dont really use it as my main mail client now though, i switched to GMX about 4 months ago for their mail collector features.

Firstly I have to rant that they are still tagging emails with adds for Live Services in outgoing email when sent via web interface. :angry:

I am currently living in Canada and have the updated mail interface (but have the live.com email domain). Depends on what server your email is on.

bl122 Now updated.

My account currently lets me switch back to the old style by...

  • Login to Livemail / Hotmail
  • Click on "Windows Live" on the top right, will take you to home.live.com
  • Click Hotmail from that page. Your email now uses the older mail interface for that session.

Shame the new look hotmail does look like the other live services skydrive, live home, spaces etc...

Also noticed if you select your inbox from Live Messenger it also uses the older sytle interface.

Guys my account finally got upgraded and I love how fast it is. How do I enable the Full email though? I still have the classic look without the preview pane.

On the top left click "Options", then where it says "Reading pane settings" selecting Right or Bottom will enable it.

Mine updated about a week ago and since then i have not been able to open my emails i can log in fine but when i click an email to open it it comes up loading down the bottom but nothing happens? I have tried IE and firefox both do the same thing. I have tried 3 different accounts and they all do the same thing. Can someone please help? I haven't been able to read my emails for a week and its getting really annoying.
