Hotmail to Outlook
« on: Sep 20, 2016, 10:18:37 »
Any-one use Hotmail.

I seem to have had my hotmail converted to Outlook and it's awful, I hate it, its slow to respond to any command, and the flagged items don't show clearly. 

This is not an upgrade, it's a downgrade, upgrades should be an improvement, why must they always keep tinkering with things, if it's not broke no need to fix it.

I guess I am stuck with it, unless any-one knows better?

I have googlemail (I used it for back up in the past and I use the google calendar which I can sync to my smartphone), but I don't like the way that works for E Mail.  Was always missing new mail because they rolled it onto the end of a previous conversation.  Had the same problem with Virgin webmail (who are my ISP).  So went over to Hotmail as I preferred the way it worked, also can access from anywhere.

Don't really want to have to change it again, I guess I'll just have to get used to it.

Didn't know you could so that. 

Pretty sure you can't with Virgin webmail, I found that totally impossible to cope with.  Folders would disappear, you'd get about 4 or 5 lines of E mails showing and about 5/6 of the page would be blank. 

Well I'll persevere with Outlook for the time being as it's a real fag changing E mail addresses.

I presume you are doing everything in a browser window in which case you will be limited. Use an email client such as Thunderbird.

Yeah, I know it's not strictly Windows, but it's not astronomical, so moved to PC Helpline.

No big deal. I'm also wondering whether to split the thread about the last imaging session to move the practical post-session discussion out of "Behind the Scenes" into "Technical"...

Yes might be a good idea Rick.

Starting to get used to this, but it's still a bit clunky, i.e. you click on something and it takes a while to respond.  Never had this problem with Hotmail.
