HawkInOz posted a topic in Microsoft Beta DiscussionI would love to have been using Windows Live Mail (since Vista no longer has Outlook Express), but there has been an ongoing issue with it truncating the Safe Senders list if the number of entries exceeds 250 (the limit for a standard user). As a Windows Live Hotmail Plus subscriber (yes, I'm still paying annually for that), I am allowed an additional 250 entries, or 500 entries total - and I use them all. But when I first installed and configured Windows Live Mail, I was horrified to discover that half of my entries were gone and that a LOT of email was ending up in my Junk Mail folder (potentially to be auto-deleted) that had previously been delivered to my Inbox thanks to a saving entry in the Safe Senders list. I spent over a year going back and forth with the Windows Live Mail Technical Support Team, without success, trying to get this issue fixed (Case Number SRX1052771462ID). The last correspondence I received from Microsoft on Feb 5, 2008, stated "Steven, I would like to inform you that our Windows Live Mail Product Development Team is aware of this issue and is currently working on a solution." That process ended when my email replies started failing with a return message from 'Microsoft Technical Support' of "Disabled for Ratatouille cleanup." - whatever that is supposed to mean. So all this leads to my simple yet crucial question: Does the new version 14.0.8050.1202 of Windows Live Mail finally address this issue, or will I find myself trying to re-enter 250 domain names back into my Safe Senders list over the next few months if I install it? Thanks in advance for any and all intelligent replies.
