Hotmail will continue to work with Outlook Express – for now

Filed under: Microsoft,Miscellaneous — spiderwebwoman at 8:13 pm on Tuesday, May 6, 2008

Last month, I posted about Microsoft’s plan to disable the ability of Hotmail users to use Outlook Express to download their email. Today, we heard this: 

Recently, many customers received notification regarding Microsoft’s plan to disable the DAV protocol, which allows you to access your Windows Live Hotmail inbox from Outlook Express. From the feedback we received, it became clear that you needed additional time to evaluate alternative solutions and with this in mind, we are postponing the transition deadline previously announced.  This means that you will continue to be able to access your Windows Live Hotmail accounts from Outlook Express beyond the June 30 transition deadline.
