Windows Live Mail now features a clean, elegant, simple, complete working Calendar. When you install Windows Live Mail, either for the first time or as an upgrade to an older version, go straight to Calendar. Even though it works in harmony with the online Windows Live Calendar, you’ll want to use the Live Mail version and that’s the beauty of software + services!.
Creating an event is simple, just click on a day and start filling out information. Or you can enter an email directly as a Calendar event. Just right click on an email, add to calendar, and input the date information, and save. Once you do, you just click on the event on your calendar, and the body of the email is included. And then of course all of the information you’ve entered into your Windows Live Calendar from Live Mail is available anywhere you can log into www.calendar.live.com, including that email you linked.
The online Windows Live calendar, with sharing via invitation or publicly, anywhere access, and connection to other calendars is still there of course, but now you can control it from your desktop. Of course you can also create a Windows Live Event online, and add it to your calendar.
Windows Live Mail aside from a facelift, has a new button to “Check Names and Email”, and some improvements to the Newsreader (long newsgroup names now wrap, instead of being cut off, for one).
