But the Redmond technology firm will not be updating Windows Live Mail 2012 to be compatible with these new changes.
The Mail app built into Windows 10 is compatible with all of the above email addresses.
The problem that you have now is when you try to log into Messenger, most users will receive a message saying “A newer version is available.
Getting this must install message isn’t much fun if you don’t want Skype because it’s basically giving you the choice of Skype or nothing.
This problem will appear on just about all versions of Messenger going back to 8.5, 7.5 and maybe even beyond meaning you simply cannot connect until an upgrade is performed.
Windows Live Messenger (formerly MSN Messenger) is a discontinued instant messaging client developed by Microsoft for Windows, Xbox 360, Black Berry OS, i OS, Java ME, S60 on Symbian OS 9.x, and Zune HD.
It connected to the Microsoft Messenger service while also having compatibility with Yahoo! The client was first released as MSN Messenger on July 22, 1999, and was marketed under the MSN branding until 2005 when it was rebranded under Windows Live and has since been officially known by its present name, although its previous name was still used colloquially by most of its users.
In June 2009, Microsoft reported the service attracted over 330 million active users each month, placing Messenger among the most widely used instant messaging clients in the world.
