"Its a great service, does what it says it does."
On my computer as the download it works great as a client. Nicely done. The internet interface even works on my Android phone.
Spell cheking is only in one language. Cannot figure out how to spell-check in another.
Security and safety are great. This is the big strength. Offcourse hotmail or live cannot determine what you do on your computer safety wise, but they do a great job with junk, spam and viruses. Just recenlly someone could not send me e-mails, they were returned to him "as the reult of a Windows LIve policy". It turns out that he is on a server whose IP address is used by a virus to open a backdoor on infected computers. I found that quite impressive. This happened to me before with another e-mail contact, similar policy notice, but this time for spam. I feel save using this client software or hotmail on-line. In both cases, the contacts were legitimate businesses, they were unpleasently surprised. Comes to show, choose your e-mail server well.
