Hotmail will discontinue DAV protocol from September 2009

Microsoft has just announced that the Hotmail is preparing to stop using the DAV (also known as WebDAV) protocol on September 1, 2009. If you use Outlook, Outlook Express, and Entourage (in Mac OSX) for accessing Hotmail mail, you will not be able to receive your mail after the date, you will need to take action in order to continue getting your Hotmail.

The explanation given by Microsoft is that, DAV protocol is almost obsolete, and is inefficient for handling large inboxes. Moreover, by incorporating alternative methods (including the POP3 protocol) and are available to all Hotmail users for free, the use of inefficient DAV protocol is unnecessary.

It is recommended that, to continue receiving e-mail from your Hotmail account via above mentioned email clients, Outlook Express users are encouraged to upgrade free Windows Live Mail.

Microsoft Outlook users must download and install the Outlook Connector add-on and users of Entourage (in Mac OS X) should change the settings to POP3 protocol. More information… [Via]
