Another thing about MSN Explorer is that it is quite a system resource hog. The web based email is one feature that isn't too
bad (if the server doesn't happen to be down), along with the capability to add multiple user tiles. Each one is customizable, free, and provides email (@hotmail/@MSN) for each user tile.
The email (being web based) allows you to access it from anywhere with Internet access. You can, of course, access the email without using MSN Explorer (as with any hotmail account). Attachments are automatically scanned for viruses, and will use appropriate word processing programs (ie: MS Word) to provide spell checking. The spell checking will follow the same rules as set in the word proccessor.
However, running Word 2002 on XP, my MSN Explorer email spell checking works on and off (mostly off)
. I'm not trying to bolster MSN Explorer (in contrast to my previous post), pointing out some of the positives, even though their only positives when they're working properly (not too often in some cases and most often in others). In the end, it just comes down to a matter of personal preference. Some love it, others hate it
