I guess it’s a good excuse for anyone who sent me any messages to my work email since the good folks at the Windows Live “Help” center have killed off access my account completely.
What started off as an annoyance has now graduated into extreme irritation.
It all started when suddenly I couldn’t use Windows Mail, that comes with Vista, to access the accounts. Then (after 4 days) they’ve apparently decided that “fixing” the problem would be too much trouble. And to think, the only reason I used Live Mail was because my first name was available.
Heed the warning… Never use Microsoft Mail services if you value your work and sanity.
Update 8:00 PM
So finally the mail accounts work! And I only had to reset the password about a dozen times. The problem was sent to “Escalation” (whatever that means) on the forums, but hopefully they’ll leave it alone so nothing will happen again.
