If your Windows Live ID is a third party email address(e.g. **Not hotmail.com, live.com, or msn.com, or an msn partner address) it
does not have an Inbox at mail.live.com, but it can be used to signin to WLMsgr.
If so, then the mail for that Live ID comes from your email accounts servers, not Windows Live
- Might the above be the case ?
To access and verify a third party Live ID calendar, logon to calendar.live.com with that ID and password.
- Is your calendar accessible ?
The previous version of WLM did not have a calendar option.
