Windows Live Hotmail comments and bugs

The change the other day to from the old Hotmail to Windows Live Hotmail introduced some changes that where not only for the good.

Before it was possible to set the background color for a whole email. The background color extended for the whole width of the message. Now it's only the text that can have a background.

This is how it could be before.

But now it look like this.

Before animated gif's where animated when viewing a email message in Hotmail but now they are not animated.
A small thing is that the emoticons has changed slightly. image

The emoticon to the left is the new one and to the right the old one. The old one is looking better on a black background as you see.

And as you can see there are two different gif's used. is the old one. is the new one.

I also find wonder when Microsoft will stop using Trend Micro for safety check and scanning for viruses instead of their own Windows Live OneCare or Microsoft enterprise security product. The agreement was extended at Apr 10, 2006 and I'm not sure for how long that was.


  1. Since the change I can no longer get into my old hotmail account. Is there someone I could call? I need to get into my email.

  2. I suggest you visit this page and see if you can find some help:
