Windows Live Mail and Exchange ActiveSync no longer working on some Windows Phone 7 devices (UPDATED)

The Windows Phone 7 drama continues…. After the messed up 7008 update for the Samsung Omnia 7 and Focus devices now comes the Exchange ActiveSync and Windows Live issues. As you probably know by now I finally decided to hard-reset my Omnia 7 to be able to apply the 7008 update to it (because this was the ONLY way to do it). The whole system setup (Live account, calendar, date etc..) went smoothly but I just noticed that my Live accounts are no longer able to sync with the cloud and are greeting me with a 86000206 error message.

Windows Live Movie Maker 14 is out


Not really mobile related but I just wanted to share this. We can now finally say that Windows Live Wave 3 has finally been fully rolled out. Windows Live Movie Maker 14 wasn’t part of Redmond’s Wave 3 (only an early beta version was available) because of the fact that it just wasn’t finished. Thankfully for Microsoft it’s now here before the launch of Windows 7. Lots of new features are included, like direct to YouTube upload, support fro HD videos up to 1080p and a smarter storyboard. Head over here to download it the final version (14.0.8091.0730).

Live Mesh to be named Windows Live Devices

Liveside posted what looks like the first screenshots of the new (probably out-of-beta) version of Live Mesh named Windows Live Devices. Microsoft has long promised the integration of Live Mesh into the different Windows Live services and in January the Live Mesh team joined the Windows Live team . This will probably be launched as part of Windows Live Wave 4 in Q3 09/Q1 10. Just like the current verison of Mesh, user will be able to ad their PCs, Macs or Mobile phones, digital photo frames and their Skydrives (which will form the “Live Desktop” component for Windows Live Devices) to the service and have seamless syncing between all of them.
