Windows Live Mail: getting fewer ads
--From Ellie's blog (Ellie is Live Mail Program Manager)
For those of you who have been asking for fewer ads on Windows Live Mail, we've heard you. Microsoft has decided to remove one of the big ads from Windows Live Mail. This is a very expensive decision, and we hope it will make users happier by having more space to read their mail.
The product team has wanted to do this for a long time, so we're really glad everyone at Microsoft is committed to it so we can make it happen.
I hope you're all excited about this! (The change will be in a coming release, not immediate.)
