Being fed up with BTYahoo mail, I decided to go back to MS Live mail.

I can't find it - every search takes me to Hotmail which then changes to Outlook. I knew that Hotmail was going but I hadn't seen anything about the end of Live mail.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Thanks

If you mean the Desktop Live Mail application, it's part of Windows Essentials

Microsoft are phasing out the 'Live' branding. There are different versions of Essentials for Windows 7 and earlier OS's, which didn't get the latest release.

If you want webmail from Microsoft, you're stuck with Existing users of other Microsoft webmail products are being migrated at the moment, causing much wailing and gnashing of teeth.
