    No Hotmail or Windows Live Mail forums or category selection at either of these locations

    Premature notice or some type of staged rollout ?

    Don't know what is up as I didn't hear back from the forums team yet, but I do
    indeed see a whole list of new forums when I sign in there:
    These are the originals:
    • Windows Live Family Safety
    • Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, and FrameIt
    • Sync and Devices
    • Windows Live Events and Toolbar
    These are the new ones that appeared on Friday for me:
    • My Home Page and Profile
    • Hotmail and Mail
    • Windows Live Messenger
    • People, Contacts, Groups, and Invitations
    • Writer and Spaces
    • Permissions and Sharing
    • Account and Windows Live ID

    Very mysterious. I'll note that if I go to the Windows Live category on Answers
    without signing in, I only see the original 4. As soon as I sign in with my
    LiveID I see the complete list.

  3. FWIW I tested both of those by
    1. opening them both
    2. checking which Cookies were used by them
    3. deleting all Cookies which were used (including ones which
    were accessed but not written)
    4. reopening both of them with my primary Live ID (non-Hotmail account)
    5. reopening both of them with my secondary Live ID (Hotmail .ca account)

    BTW what a collection of Cookies! (even with Live Toolbar disabled.)

    US Hotmail Live ID accounts only? <eg>

    Nothing here
    - with or without the same Live ID used previously/setup for the 'answers' forums
    - with the Live ID used for
    - nothing with a new Live ID

    You must be the sole beta tester <g>

    Do the links for the new one's(e.g. Hotmail, Mail, Messenger, People) actually work ?
    If so, can you cut and paste in a follow-up response..

    Try this was posted by Microsoft Support in a thread in the Sync and Devices forum as a valid link for Live Messenger forum

    Here's the Sync and Devices thread it(the above link) appeared.
    - second post included the link, my response was the third(informing it doesn't appear to work)

  6. Aha!

    You are not authorized to perform this action.
    That's Ok. Synch and Devices is one of the 4 forums
    that I am (apparently) allowed to see (with my main Live ID
    --non Hotmail.)

    No difference if I logout or if I login with my secondary Live ID-- account.)
