    Hotmail was such a recognizable and widely known brand that Microsoft has
    decided to utilize this and renamed WLM to WL Hotmail.
    It's also partly due to number of Mail's that microsoft has floating around
    at the moment, people were getting confused. Windows Mail, Windows Live
    Mail, Windows Live Mail Desktop etc. etc.
    For once I think Microsoft PR department has actually got something right :)

    Hehe, personally I think MSIMN was so much friendlier...

    Since Outlook is part of the "Office" suite it could have been renamed
    Windows Office Mail, just for the new version and leave the older versions
    to fade naturally..

    That would clear up the Outlook Vs OE confusion after a while.

    Vista mail or Vista Hotmail if you must (Since it is not for any other OS)
    would work for the non ad version.

    Windows Mail Express for the WLMD ad supported version which is very like OE
    but does all versions of Windows that are current.

    But then where did logic creep into this? Anybody? :)

    Well, maybe my question just heightens the confusion. I am trying to figure
    out how to combine my Windows Live Hotmail email account, with my Windows
    Live Mail Desktop email page.
    First of all, I wanted a '' address and cannot figure out how to
    get one. I do live inside the United States.
    Second, I keep pulling up two different email windows = the Hotmail one, and
    the new Windows Live Desktop one. Even my password manager is confused. And
    now I am getting confused as to which way I should go. After I make a
    decision, how do I accomplish it?
    Does anyone know the future and can advise me what to use? Is the new
    Windows Live Mail Desktop going away?
    Will it all merge one day?
    Appreciate any help
    Thank you
