Wazoo Posted April 13, 2005 Share Posted April 13, 2005 Just received this from MSN .... MSN HOTMAIL MEMBER COMMUNICATION Dear MSN Member, Recently, Hotmail® announced that in order to improve customer experience and reduce spam and junk e-mail abuse on MSN® services, Hotmail will no longer allow new e-mail accounts to be accessed via Microsoft® Office Outlook® and Outlook Express. We are pleased to inform you that because you are an existing and valued customer, at this time your current Hotmail and MSN account(s) are exempt from this restriction and you will be able to continue enjoying access to those accounts from Outlook or Outlook Express. However, any new Hotmail or MSN accounts you create will not be accessible via Outlook or Outlook Express. The "at this time" sure seems a bit out of place .. noting that the rest of the message was a sales pitch for a 'special' deal on Microsoft Office Outlook Live which includes a copy of Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for Subscription Services ... I can't afford a SpamCop e-mail account but Microsoft thinks I'll spring for a bastardized version of Outlook as a subscription service???? Of course, even funnier was that a newsletter from Microsoft - At Home and Work was placed into the Junk Folder <g> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
