That's because you are not using IE. What you are seeing is a non-IE (watered down) version of the app. Therefore, first and foremost, you need to access OWA from Internet Explorer, otherwise you will not see the Rules section. Secondly, make sure forwarding is allowed from the Exchange server. Then: Login Click on the Options button at the top right of ...

I asked the same question on Microsoft support last month and, at that time, they said the answer was "no."

Yes, Outlook.com has that feature as of this week. This blog article explains how it works: http://www.ghacks.net/2013/09/17/can-now-use-email-aliases-outlook-com/

Go to https://account.live.com You should see your account information. In the line that shows your email click on the Change link and follow the prompts: Windows Live ID: your@address.net Change You will only see the change link if you did not use a @hotmail.com or @live.com address to sign up.

Mark the little checkbox in the upper right-hand corner of the tile that represents the document in your SkyDrive. Click on Manage in the bar on the top, then click on Move to. You'll now be given the option to select the target location for your file. Alternatively, SkyDrive also supports Drag & Drop to achieve move operations:

There is no difference. Just use the one that you prefer, if the address you want is still available. Hotmail has 364 million users. They started adding more domains so that more people could get the email address they wanted. My mother managed to find her name available on @hotmail.co.uk, while she has to have a large number as a suffix on @hotmail.com. ...

@hotmail.com is from before Microsoft began transitioning to their Windows Live products. @live.com is simply the new addresses they are handing out, though the old @hotmail.com addresses still work so that older users are not disrupted. As far as a reason to get one or the other, I believe it's simply up to personal preference. Last I checked, all of the ...

Yes, they can view. Its no problem for office docs, which can be open directly in skydrive or images you want to see. But you cant send link to file and download it. When you need download, you need to have a live ID.

From Wikipedia: Office Live Workspace is currently not supported on Office 2010. In May 2010, it was announced that Office Live Workspace customers would be moved to Microsoft's SkyDrive service, which offers 25GB of storage and the ability to view and edit documents through Office Web Apps.

Here is the full list of the keyboard shortcuts for Outlook.com, and you could change the default shortcuts to the ones from Yahoo! or Gmail from the settings:

It is possible to set up an alias for your email address in the country code top level domain. The option is available somewhere in the mail settings. Here are some steps (note that this is using Outlook online): Log in to your Hotmail/Windows Live account. Click on the gear icon on the top right hand corner and select "More mail settings" In the Options ...

Go to your SkyDrive account (skydrive.live.com) Click the "New" item on the upper-left corner Select the type of document you want to create (see image) Alternatively, upload an existing Office 2007/2010 document, select it and choose "Edit in browser" In both cases, the document will open in an online Office app.

Outlook.com allows the creation of email aliases, which is essentially the same as the Gmail and Yahoo features that you mention. Email sent to your aliases will forward to your regular Outlook.com account. Outlook.com does have limits, though: you can only create up to 5 aliases per year, and you can have a maximum of 15 aliases in total. Here is the link ...

I finally figured it out. Once I verified with Microsoft that the account is indeed mine, I can log in to live.com and access the "Recent Activity" menu under the Account Settings option. This will list the different activities in the account (password reset, successful login, etc.), with IP address, device/platform, browser, date and location. Thanks to ...

From a Microsoft representative: "With the current design of Hotmail, the option you're referring to is not yet available. I will forward the suggestion over to our product team as consideration for a future release." Unfortunately, that was over a year ago. It doesn't look like the feature is coming anytime soon.

I would try setting this first option, and then resyncing. I'm thinking you might have checked the second option in 2009.

The problem is that under Options -> Accessibility -> Low Resolution or Blind settings were on, and the rules options were not being displayed.

One thing you could try is using a second domain to redirect. It looks like Windows Live would support you creating an email domain, of say mail.example.com and then you could create a catchall on your registrar's site (GoDaddy instructions for example) for the "main"/primary domain. catcher@example.com (is catchall) (redirects to ...

I think the best you can do is go to https://account.live.com/ and setup your new account as a linked account. Linked accounts let you switch between account quickly by clicking on your name. You can log into any of the accounts and then switch. Skydrive One word... stuffed. You could try emailing support, but I think you are stuffed. I would like to know ...

Looking for this also, apparently it's under development or still being considered as an option to be build later since October 2010. Be sure to make your 'suggestion' here by marking that you have the problem too: microsoft answers Add a feedback suggestion here: http://feedback.live.com/ that describes your issue. I think this is the best way to get ...

The certificate error can be ignored – the certificate expired yesterday (June 9th) but is otherwise valid. The second, "Server Error" is misconfiguration at Microsoft's end, and there is nothing you can do here. You'll have to wait for Microsoft to fix it. There does seem to be another way to register an application: Go to https://live.azure.com/, ...

(I was trying to sync a project, but wasn't watching where it synced to closely enough.. It was saving to my home folder instead of the project folder.) To sync a folder to somewhere other than your home folder: Select folder to sync on one computer, but do NOT select anywhere to sync to. Open Live Mesh on other computer, and select the folder you just ...

You shouldn't need to do anything as all your information should be transferred to your new ID. Taken from the Change Live ID screen When you rename your Windows Live ID, your new ID works just like your old one. All of your account information and contacts will automatically transfer to your new ID within 48 hours. If you are concerned ...

Live Mesh and Live Groups are two separate products and you have two separate accounts. Currently there is no such Sync feature between the two. You would have to manually do whatever you wish to.

In the end, I just downloaded windows live mail, logged in with my live ID, and it synced everything up for me :-)

In some regions, Office Web Apps is not enabled, but you still can enable it if you go to http://office.live.com/?docsf=1. It could not be in your language tough.

Yes, this is a known current limitation that is being addressed. Same here. (I wonder how you are adding SkyDrive as a networking drive. This is not currently a scenario Microsoft supports officially. :-)) This is currently by design - SkyDrive does not allow uploading files to the root; only folders are allowed in the root "folder".
