Windows Live Mail fights obsolescene

IT Culture, Microsoft

As much progress as places like Gmail have made there is simply no substitute for an offline mail storage that web based solutions simply do not offer. Looks like the Live folks actually got that message and are rebranding the Outlook Express into Windows Live Mail. Still in beta, this beast is a part of the latest Windows Vista beta and integrates quick searching, offline storage, spell checking, new UI, better newsgroup integration and finally RSS! I guess someone there finally heard Scoble 🙂 Whats particularly interesting is that this version actually encourages community related functions. For example, Microsoft newsgroups are programmed in (come on guys, say bundled just once!) into the software so you can ask a question and get MVP's to help you out pretty much out of the box! Good job live!
