Windows Live Mail release M5 is scheduled to be released shortly. According to Steve Kafka’sÂ postÂ on the Windows Live Mail blog, the new release includes:
Hotmail Classic View
- A way to view mail for clients using a browser other than Internet Explorer 6 or higher. Includes a number of features from the current Hotmail site that clients are familiar with
Pick Your Own Colors
- Customization, personaliation and everything else to brand Windows Live Mail as your product. I honestly believe that the real reason this feature is being included is to support pending enhancements from the Windows Live Custom Domains team.
- Another Outlook Express client? I’m not sure what this is and hope to test out the product when it’s officially launched
New User Wizard
- Windows Live Mail is being ramped up for end user support?
Configurable Reading Pane
Contact Picker/ Find in Contacts
- Windows Live Messenger styled Contacts search. Allows you to instantly search your entire contacts list for information that pertains to your search query.
