Update required to keep using Windows Live Mail 2012 with Microsoft accounts
If you're still sticking with Windows Live Mail 2012 as your email client of choice, there's a change to Microsoft email accounts coming that you'll want to be aware of.

Still, if you plan on sticking it out, you can go ahead and grab the required update from Microsoft.
