Get your @live.com and @live.ca email now

by AJ on November 7, 2007

Live.com is out of beta and is now offering free @live.com and @live.ca email address. Ok, its not that you will use it (there’s always Gmail), but it’s better to get your name before a spammer does. And oh, don’t forget to check it once every 120 days so that the account stays active. Give yourself a reminder using Google Calendar to “check @live.com email address”.

Also, don’t worry if you have multiple Windows Live ID. You can easily link them using their own tool. Go to “Settings” > “Manage Linked IDs” to acheive this. Pretty cool. Get all your IDs and link them now.

The Windows Live Mail app (if downloaded) allows email account integration between popular email providers such as Gmail and AOL.

Windows Hotmail Live is still 5GB (previously 2GB) with loads of graphical ads.  Visit it now and get your @live.com address before it’s gone and taken by a spammer.

Easy to see why all the anger at this site. The most difficult site to get on, and capriciously decides the password is no longer working, with no apparent way to reset password.

Well my live address is missminx@live.ca but all of a sudden, I can’t get ion with my password, and unlike virtually all sites, it wont let me reset my password following a link sent to my other email. I can see why the majority of people here are fed up.

I have lost all my e-mails and cannot access my own markcormier@live.ca the only address that Ican use now is markcormier@gmail.com? I will have to contact all my people and tell them what happened but am not sure if it will happen again?

Hello,

One of your customers has sent me a virus by email today. I have reason to believe it was deliberate.
The message read as follows:

lifesaversauto@live.ca sent you a private message.

@Larry, I don’t think you can turn-off the spam filters at Live.ca or Hotmail.ca. What you can do is add all your contacts’ email to the address book. That will ensure delivery (99%).

Btw, live.ca and hotmail.ca are both owned by Microsoft. Not mine (I wish).

Is there some way I can get around your spam filter. Some mail is marked spam and is not. Please reply.

by aj on January 17, 2008 at 10:13 PM. Reply #

here are the exact instructions:

1) go to live.ca or live.com
2) on the upper right corner, click “Sign In”
3) there will be a blue button on your left hand part “Sign Up”, click that
4) now you can finally sign up

I’m not sure why they make it so hard to find that. I guess that’s why I’ve been getting emails on how to get the @live.ca and @live.com email address.

Microsoft’s Usability team needs to smart up if they want to beat GMail. OR they intentionally did that so you will have to download the apps first.

In any case, that’s not user-friendly to me.

Hope this instructions helped. Let me know.

Cheers!
