feedback and they requested error report # but it doesnt give me that kind
of error it says WLMD has encounterd a problem and has to restart and doesnt
give an error number can you tell me where i can find the information you
need. The other two accounts are associated with other live products one
being live mail and the other with office live.

Tanja,

I tried, but got the same screen I get with the WLMD Beta invitation:

"Sorry, but it looks like you won't be able to participate in the Mail
Beta at this time.
"This might be because:
a.. Your account is with one of our partners and has additional
features that Mail Beta doesn't support yet
b.. Mail Beta isn't available in your area at this time
c.. You have a parentally controlled account
d.. Your Microsoft Passport indicates you're under 13...."
None of the above is true. It happens only with my MSN Passport account
on this machine. Installed with no problems on two other machines with
two other MSN Passport accounts. Any ideas?

and I get a watson report telling me WLMD has encounterd a problem and must
close with no error number to give you just sends the report I was under the
impression that the beta team recieved these watson reports.

Right here. We've already been told to put up with the pollution of this NG
via non-Windows Mail questions.

They said "Please Bear with us". <VBG>

Third possible reason: You don't really need this adware and
it will just save you from trying to deal with an extremely bug ridden
piece of show me the money software.

Yes, it is a problem for some people - additional accounts cause a crash. I do
hope that it gets resolved, as I'm one of them!

Naw, any one with an ounce of potential would have put "show me the money"
in a capital letters and in quotation marks. I have been trying to coax him
along a little, but he appears to still be too nice...

WMLD beta is kind of an orphan, so MSFT refers people here for a newsgroup
avenue.

My favourite so far: Unknown device has been correctly installed.

That's a good one. Goes up there with "An unexpected error has occured" and
"An unknown error has occured." But it doesn't beat the one that tells you
you need to reinstall Windows Mail, when actually the problem is the
database.

Leen,

MS is referring all WLAMD users to this NG for support.

It's seems to be Steve.

Rather funny a new (live) mail/new/rss client that has gone public now and
not even having it's own newsgroup.
Stephchild from start? Not a good one.. ;-)

PS: Was the "A" ( wlAmd) added by mistake or is there again a new name
(WLMD/WLMC and now WLAMD) or does it jsut sounds funny to pronounce it now
;-)
