    I have been trying to get it to work for a week,
    Every time i log on i get a different look and feel.
    some windows have the new look but do not work. some windows have the old look but will not update my mail or my contacts.
    For me sucks plenty.
    Maybe in a month it will all merge smothly, NOW it is worth only lots of headache.
    please can i go back to good and simple hotmail.
    will probably uninstall all that garbage next week if there are no improvement.
