    Hi

    Hotmail has just been upgraded. While early on I had switched to the Office version, I switched back when I kept getting the prompt to upgrade my browser. Also many error msgs were encountered each time I clicked on a link. But this forced upgrade seems to have been made more inclusive as far as browsers are concerned. Gone are the error msgs or the prompt to upgrade our browser. My mailbox is surprisingly smoother to navigate.

    A pleasant surprise...

    I like it too and soon PC users we will be able to make Skype calls from Outlook.com as they now call it!

    Lol!

    Right after I posted about the upgrade no longer causing the browser error msg, I went to the e-mail notification on yer post and the prompt to upgrade my browser was there. Now every e-mail I click on causes the msg to upgrade. Guess I'll be switching to gmail.

    Well, I had an e-mail for a return label. It disappeared. Also, anyone notice when using the up/down directional keys, rather than scroll the page ya end up in the next e-mail. I must have deleted the same e-mail 5 times before it stopped popping back up.

    The older version no longer exists...

    Yeah, Mike

    Tell me about it! The reason for the change is obvious. Microsoft Office works well w/their Office Suite found on Windows operating systems. They have to have know the issues this move would cause w/mobile & noncompliant browsers. A worldwide software company killing off the competition by narrowing the field by handicapping multi-device users. Google will have to move on this fast! Unless they are also trying to attract users to their nightmare version of email.

    Gmail, what a waste...
