I use Windows Live Mail as my PC-based Mail client. I run about 10 email accounts. For a couple of months now, I have noticed the Windows Live Mail (WLM) is messing with my stored mail. By that I mean: I have created about 50 folders under the Storage Folders area. Every now and then emails that I know were stored in a particular folder disappear and totally unrelated emails are in my storage folders instead. I can't say if it's a 1 for exchange of emails. Sometimes I can find them in the Quick Views (shows emails from all Accounts), but sometimes not (because, I presume, they are in the bulk of emails that I eventually delete en masse due to age). It might also be because, while I know I saved an email with certain information, I don't recall enough specifics to be able to locate it.
So, I am fed up with Storage Folders that don't store properly and am thinking about making a change. I am thinking about Hotmail instead of WLM. I am attracted by the unlimited storage space, thinking (perhaps erroneously) that a system designed to handle unlimited storage might do a better job of maintaining the Storage Folders. I am nervous about my emails being in the cloud instead of on my PC, but I guess I need to evolve sooner or later. I am assuming Hotmail will support all my other email accounts (POP3s, gmail, live.com). I fear the unknown. I don't know what I should ask about whiching to Hotmail, so I'll keep this generic: Does anyone here have an opinion they would like to share regarding moving from WLM to Hotmail?
