Microsoft releases new Outlook Hotmail Connector

Microsoft has released an update to the Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector. This update is required to continue using Hotmail accounts in Outlook.

The Outlook Hotmail Connector allows you to manage your Windows Live Hotmail e-mail, calendar, and contacts from within Outlook. When Outlook (with a previous release of Hotmail Connector installed) is launched, a prompt appears to upgrade to the latest release.

Fixes and changes included in the update;
– Several send/receive issues are fixed.

– The Outlook junk email filter within Outlook is turned off for Hotmail accounts (this was erroneously flagging good mail as junk). Junk messages are now detected at the Hotmail mail server. Any entries you made in Outlook for the junk email filters (Safe Senders, Blocked Senders, and Safe Recipients) continue to work correctly and synchronize between Outlook and the Hotmail mail server.

– Fixes for hangs and crashes experienced when sending meetings using the Hotmail Connector and when adding a new Hotmail account to an existing profile.

– Fix for an issue where Windows Live contacts’ birthdays and anniversaries shifted by one day when synchronized with Outlook.

– Fix for an issue that blocked synchronization of the Category property in an Outlook contact with Windows Live.
