Windows 7: Details on the latest Windows Live Mail update

Details on the latest Windows Live Mail update

The Windows Live Mail team has posted on their blog today about what was updated and fixed in the latest release (build number 14.0.8089.0726) that came along with the new Windows Live Movie Maker. Here’s a few of the main bugs that were addressed in this update:
  • Windows Live Mail can now properly import Outlook Express mail account settings that were transferred from a Windows XP to a new Vista or Windows 7 system using the Windows Easy Transfer wizard.
  • Some users had problems launching Windows Live Mail and we have addressed this. In some cases, after you closed Windows Live Mail, the application would appear to close, but the wlmail.exe process would continue to run in the background. That process would prevent Mail from launching in the future.
  • On Vista and Windows 7, Windows Live Mail wouldn’t connect properly to POP email servers using SSL. In particular, this affected some users of Yahoo! Mail.
If you have had sign-in issues previously, try this new update to see if your problems are addressed.

It is good to see that the Windows Live Mail team has been proactive and publishing the details about this update. We’ll have to wait and see whether the other teams will be posting about their latest changes.
