Windows Live Mail does not have any invites like Gmail or WLM beta.


However there are few ways to get Windows Live Mail, first you must be in USA, so search around and use google to find "get hotmail upgrade" or something.

In brief this is what you can do... if you are using Hotmail with 2MB, then you will need to get to 25MB first, then wait for it to get upgraded to 250MB... then wait a bit longer to get an invitation from WLM team.

For me, one account took just 2 weeks from 2MB to Windows Live Mail. another account too about 1 month.


(tips: to get from 2MB to 25MB, you need to close your .NET passport - don't worry about email, it will be intact. ... you can find this from googling...)

Kind of strange MS offers such small mailboxes... I've got 2GB on Yahoo, and 2,728MB on Gmail. Having said that, I think my Live Mail storage is 2GB too, but there's usage indicator there at the moment.

windows Live mail also offer 2GB but it is only "on demand". so if your usage is close to next expansion, it will be gradually added, up to 2GB i think.

However, this may change when Windows Live Mail is released to public. This is from what I read.
