Why the wait?

  1. Twice now I've indicated I'd like to try Windows Live Mail. Both times
    I get a statement that I'll have to wait two weeks. What's that all about?

    That happens with Hotmail, however, MSN, and Pop3, Cox, cable worked right
    away. This is reply I got when inquiring about Hotmail.

    Hello Gus,

    Thank you for writing to Windows Live Mail Desktop Technical Support. My
    name is Edward and I gather that you have not been able to synchronize your
    account in Windows Live Mail Desktop. I understand how inconvenient this
    issue can be.

    Your account must be promoted manually to the Windows Live Mail beta
    program. I have sent your account information to the team that handles this
    process. This process may take up to two weeks. We appreciate your patience.

    You are valuable at Windows Live, and we look forward to providing you with
    consistent and effective service. We appreciate your input and involvement
    in our Windows Live products.

    Activate you over to the beta servers I would guess. It's not an automatic
    process yet and I would imagine it would also deal with capacity at the
    moment since it's in it's beta state.

    My additional accounts took just about a week to activate and then, since I
    had already set them up, they just appeared active one day.

  4. Thanks for answering.
    In my frustration over the debacle that is IE7 I couldn't imagine
    Microsoft taking the turn it seems to be. I just *knew* there had to be
    MS software out there that usable. I stumbled upon the Windows Live
    showcase. I've tried every single one. Mail was the last one.

    I can not find one single reason to use a lot of the programs and of the
    few I might use they all have issues that prevent me from using them.
    To offer a link addressed "Try the Windows Live Mail Beta" followed by a
    notice to wait two weeks is beyond description.

    Try as I may I just can't find the purpose behind this whole "LIVE"
    project save for maybe a 'make-work' project for a bunch of MS employees.
