A new way to get Hotmail on your phone
We are happy to announce that POP3 technology is now available to Hotmail users *edit 12Mar09* WORLDWIDE!
What is POP3? It is a protocol that allows almost any e-mail software program that youâ€™ve installed on your mobile phone or PC* to get messages from your e-mail inbox on the web and deliver them in the designated program.
Although you always could access Hotmail on your web-enabled mobile phone by going to mobile.live.com, now that Hotmail has POP3, you can get to it more conveniently using the e-mail software on your PC or mobile device* such as a Windows Mobile phone, iPhone, or BlackBerry.
When you set up Hotmail in the e-mail program on your PC or mobile device, you may be asked for the following information:
POP server: pop3.live.com (Port 995)
POP SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example email@example.com
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
SMTP server: smtp.live.com (Port 25 or 587)
Authentication required? Yes (this matches your POP username and password)
TLS/SSL required? Yes
In addition to POP3, Microsoft offers additional technologies that can provide you with an even richer experience of your e-mail. Try viewing your Hotmail using Windows Live Mail, Microsoft Office Outlook via the Outlook Connector, or Windows Live for Windows Mobile phone.
Looking for help with Hotmail? Visit the Windows Live Hotmail Solution Center! The Solution Center has instructions on how to set up your e-mail software to send and receive Windows Live Hotmail messages using POP3. Youâ€™ll also find instructions on how to set up Hotmail on the web to give you POP3 access to a non-Windows Live e-mail account. If you have problems using POP3 access, Windows Live Hotmail Solution Center also has links to report a problem with Hotmail.
We hope you enjoy the many ways in which you can access your Windows Live Hotmail!
Microsoft urgent security update for October 2008
Published: October 23, 2008
Microsoft released an urgent security update today for all supported versions of Windows.
Download the updates for your home computer or laptop from the Microsoft Update Web site now.
Here is the new security update:
â€¢ MS08-067 - addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows ( KB 958644)
IT professionals and systems administrators - Go to Microsoft TechNet for detailed information about these updates.
How to get the updates
If you are using Windows Vista you can manage your updates through the control panel. For more information, see Windows Vista: How to update your operating system.
To manually download available updates, go to Microsoft Update or in Windows Vista go to your control panel. After your computer has been scanned to see which updates it needs, click the Custom button to find and choose the update you want to install. We recommend you install all High-Priority Security and Critical updates immediately.
We recommend that you get the updates delivered automatically to your PC. When your computer is on and connected to the Internet, the most current security updates are automatically downloaded and installed. To learn how to turn on automatic updating for your particular operating system, see Update your computer automatically.
Are you running this on a single pc or is connected to a network?
If so, do you have any network-drives mapped? If yes, put the network-drives to the end of the alphabet.
Start with "z" and go backwards. Otherwise this might cause you to not see the connected local drive.
The reason for the "-1" is obvious, you started about 4 different posts for this question within minutes in the forums - though you are a vital member here, have posted some posts already.
At this place, you still ask: http://www.warp2search.net/forums/replacem...roc-t10183.html
Try to stick to the forum rules, also stop posting in threads, which are "old" and already "done". Thanks.
Fully agree with Undac there - the change is too "hard". The softness, the weaker lines, that all was part of W2S... would be awesome, if you could get that back in a bit.
Also the contrast of the "dark-blue" to the front-color is too far away te be nicely readable.
Anyway.. if the quality of the homepage stays up as it is, I dont matter, what the page looks like. But... :-)
