It took them quite a while though, but finally the update to Windows Live Mail has been pushed to the mailserver my account resides on.
No more Mail Classic, but the enhanced version that has been available to Firefox 2.x users for ages, and has been made unavailable for the Firefox3.x users. It seems to have been a browser-detection issue over at Microsoft, but they’ve managed to fix it.
Yay! I’m a happy camper. 😉
