Ok, would one of you folks who actually understands computer-ese please explain the following to me:

Quote:
Microsoft closing external Hotmail access by end of June 2008

Summary: Microsoft are disabling WebDAV access to all hotmail.com accounts. This means Hotmail Pop Links, Outlook Express and Windows Mail (the email software included in Vista) access to hotmail.com accounts will stop working at the end of June 2008. You should download all your Hotmail email ASAP and tell people to stop using your @hotmail.com email address as soon as possible.


What impact will it have on baiting?

I assume it just means they are going with the @live domain permanently from June rather than having both.

I think your [email protected] should also work wth [email protected]

I think it just means you have to use the web based client to view your emails.

Bait wise, it means you have to log into each account and then copy/paste your bait into a word doc instead of downloading.

There will be a workaround made at some point i'm sure.

It won't have any affect on me as I never use HotSnail for baiting.

Has this topic been mentioned before ? and how come the only reputable website sparking this story is Fastmail ?

Spot - You have hit on a critical point - the only reputable website that I could find mentioning it was Fastmail.

I sometimes use hotmail for mass mailings "Please call me at [insert lottery scam number here] because I want to work with you."

I'm skeptical, because I didn't think you *could* access hotmail with outlook express *anyway* Question
