So now I may have to buy a full Office subscription  evil:

An email floods in confirming Microsoft's evil plan to ditch Live Mail

____________________________________________________________________________
Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012

Dear User,
 
Earlier this year we introduced a new Outl‍ook‍.‍com that will help you collaborate with others, focus on what matters, and get more done. The new Outlo‍ok‍.‍com delivers an exciting set of new experiences across web, phone, and desktop, and we’re eager for you to start using it. 
 
It appears that you are currently using Windows Live Mail 2012 to connect to your Out‍look‍.‍com account. Windows Live Mail 2012 does not support the synchronization technologies used by the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com. When account upgrades begin at the end of June, you will no longer be able to receive email sent to your Out‍look‍.‍com account in Windows Live Mail 2012. Rest assured, you can always access your email by logging into Out‍look‍.‍com from any web browser, and you will continue to have access to all your data that is currently in Windows Live Mail 2012. 
 

If you currently use Windows Live Mail 2012, we recommend that you switch to the Mail app in Windows to‍day. The Mail app is built in to Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, and has a more modern design. To begin using it, simply launch the app and add your Out‍look‍.‍com account
 ____________________________________________________________________________

 Banghead  That Win 10 Mail App is utter shite not that Win 10 runs on this PC  cry:

But Ios 9 on a Mac comes with a decent mail and calendar App.  Time to ditch Windows?  rubschin:
Well, whatever nevermind

And that would add just what?   A: nothing

Live Mail is the application and they're ending support for all the email systems.  Yes I still get the web access but that is stuff all use if you want to read mails offline.
Well, whatever nevermind

So?

I want to have available offline all my emails not just the month's worth the Gmail Chrome App gives you.  I've got emails going back to before Noah was a glint in his dad's eye.  Anyway Google read your mail so they can send you targeted emails and ads.

It's going to have to be Outlook and that doesn't get bundled in Office Home/Student so I'm back to the same £45 a year or £160 forever issue you had.

So far very impressive  :thumbsup:   But with its limited development support there must be a risk it will also fail to handle Hotmail/Outlook after June.  But we'll see

Well, whatever nevermind
