    Microsoft Office Live is coming.
    Today, an online presence is almost a requirement for small business success. That’s why Microsoft is introducing Microsoft® Office Live—a set of affordable business productivity services designed to help you grow your business more easily by establishing a professional presence online.

    Microsoft Office Live will provide your company with its own domain name, Web site, and e-mail accounts for free.

    Additionally, Microsoft Office Live will offer you and your employees expert business management applications, such as customer, project, and document management tools, and a security-enhanced private Web site—affordably managed and maintained by Microsoft—where you can work together and share information with your employees, customers, suppliers, and contractors.

    A beta version of Microsoft Office Live will launch in early 2006.*

    Note - as always for any Microsoft site such as this, a Passport account will be required.

    Microsoft Windows Live Custom Domains - Free Email Hosting

    A new service was added to the Windows Live Beta family today - Windows Live Custom Domains. The basic idea is that anyone with a domain can now point their MX record to the Live servers. What that means is that users can have Microsoft's servers hosting their own domain's email accounts for free. There's a restriction of 20 email accounts per domain, with each mailbox getting 250MB of space.

    In addition, the same account functions as a Passport account, and can be used to sign in to MSN Messenger, MSN Spaces etc. I'm assuming users also get access to the spiffy, new AJAX-enabled Windows Live Mail Beta service as the webmail frontend for all their accounts, although that isn't explicitly mentioned anywhere on the site. The team that's working on this also has an official blog, just like all the other Live teams do.

    The Windows Live Safety Center offers Registry Cleaner and Spyware Detection now in addition to detect viruses, wasted disk space and open ports.

    Read what Windows Live Safety team said on the above at http://spaces.msn.com/safetycenter/Blog/cn...7!706.entry

    There is an option to create restore point in case you are worried that the registry cleaner will delete important registry entry.

    It's still in BETA though so use only if you are confident in using BETA service or products.
