Microsoft just released the latest Beta version of Outlook Hotmail Connector in 7 different languages.

 

Outlook Hotmail Connector allows you to manage your Windows Live Hotmail e-mail, calendar and contacts from within Outlook.  This new version provides a more reliable authentication system and improved synchronization.

 

Better with Outlook 2010

Outlook Hotmail Connector is compatible with Outlook 2003 and 2007.  When used with Outlook 2010 Beta, though, you have these additional benefits:

 

-          Rules work on the Hotmail account in Outlook even if it is not the primary account.

-          Junk filter settings (Safe Sender List/Blocked sender list/Safe Recipient list, etc) synchronization between Outlook and Hotmail.

-          Integrated Send/Receive experience with other Outlook accounts.

-          Connection status integrated in the Outlook Status Bar.

 

Where to install Outlook Hotmail Connector from:

OLC 14 comes in 32-bit version (for Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010 32-bit) and 64 bit version for Outlook 2010 64-bit version.
