Windows Live Mail Desktop Gets Update

Tanja on the Live Mail Desktop team blog has announced that the February refresh of WLMD is now available via Windows Update. For XP users go to and for Vista users, click the Start button and just type Update. Doesn’t look to be anything major, just bug fixes really. Tanja does say that any new updates for WLMD will come through Windows Update, so you’ll easily know when there’s a new build.

Oh, and for those who like to check, the new build number is 8.0.1226 (so only three builds newer than the December refresh).

Thanks to JoeM for the tip.
