Making technology work for you
There are many different functions, from Hotmail, which can make easier use Hotmail service. And one of those functions is Mail aliases.
Not everyone knows about the useful function Hotmail, allows you to create a variety of aliases to the primary mail address of Windows Live. It’s enough to add an alias name box, starting with a plus sign. For example, if your primary address firstname.lastname@example.org, an alias might look like email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org, etc. This feature, also works in Outlook Live, allowing you to create new addresses without the system administrator. This feature is very useful when you want to automatically transfer mail from your social networks in a special folder.
However, this function has two drawbacks and do not take advantage of it to ensure privacy: from the alias is always possible to get the address and alias cannot be deleted (but you can configure a rule to automatically delete all incoming new email address). To help users increase the comfort and safety of your account, Microsoft today provides the ability to create aliases with 5 completely different name box (alias). Also, they provide great support, and user can get if though the Internet – online Hotmail email support.
What is the difference between the alias and your primary address?
The main address that you used to log in to Windows Live, is your Windows Live ID, and it is unchanged. After you create aliases for entry, you should use exactly the primary address. Also, this address should be reported to your friends and acquaintances to be added to Windows Live Messenger, Office Live, and etc. Alias is only for sending and receiving mail. Attempting to add it, for example, to contact Windows Live Messenger, will fail.
One more function is notifications about unread emails in Hotmail, pinned to the taskbar. It allows you to keep abreast of new posts. If since your last login email received new messages, the number is displayed in the icon on the taskbar.
• Fix Hotmail on the Taskbar. Log into your mailbox and drag orange icon Hotmail address bar (or browser tab) on the taskbar so that’s entrenched;
• Keep an open mail. To receive notifications, displace site instead of closing;
• Solving Problems. If you fasten the icon appears in a white box, and in the navigation menu, there are no links, it is likely that the compatibility mode is enabled. To solve this problem, when you authorize in the mail, make sure that the compatibility mode icon is painted in gray. If the icon is blue, then just click on the icon and wait for the page reload.
