I have some invites available for this Windows Live Beta, and you just have to post a request here for me to send it. I will post a reply when I run out of invitations. There is no need to publish your e-mail address, I will send it to the e-mail in the comment authentication.
Make sure you use your hotmail.com address and that you are already using Windows Live Mail. If you are using the old Hotmail service this will not work, and it will be a waste of your time and my time.
The program brings together an e-mail client supporting POP3, IMAP, GMail and Windows Live Mail (previously known as Hotmail), newsgroup reader (NNTP), RSS Feed Reader (but you must have Internet Explorer 7 installed for this feature to work), contacts (synchronised with your Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Messenger account) and Calendar.
By the way, if you have a Windows Live Mail account then you also have 2GB storage (less than the current Lycos Mail 3GB option or the GMail ever increasing 2GB and counting option). But still a considerable mailbox size.
It has some interesting features, such as Windows Live Mail client (even if you don't have the premium hotmail service!), Active Search, which brings results related to the topic in the e-mail or newsgroup, and a most requested feature: automatic bottom reply in newsgroups!
When receiving the invitation it may look like an empty message. My suggestion is to forward this message without any changes to another e-mail address where you can see the source code (send to another e-mail address and save the message as HTML, then open on notepad). You will be able to find the invitation URL, something like http://ideas.live.com/AcceptInvitation.aspx?[long_code_here]. Simply copy and paste the entire URL (including the code) and login to your Live account when requested.
Complicated? Well, if you are reading this and want it badly, then that's how to do it (until Microsoft fixes the invitations).
