tanja on MoreThanMail team blog had announced the availability of their newest public build of Windows Live Mail desktop just a little bit before it was ready to go live.  Thankfully, the technical issues have been resolved and build 1083 is now up on ideas.live.com.

Here's what's new in this build:

  • Bug Fixes - This is always a given, but there are over 150 fixed since the last release.
  • Update Feeds Button - Exactly what you would think.  A button that refreshes your RSS feeds.
  • Minimize to System Tray - This is a huge one for me and a feature that I have missed since switching to Mail desktop from Outlook.
  • Sign in with 3rd Party Live ID's - This is for those of you whose Live ID is not an @msn.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com, or any of the other Microsoft produced domains.

Those are the four most significant features of the new release (at least for me), but other improvements include Easier Help Options and a change that makes your Current View Settings stick.
