    read somewhere else that ms said they are gonna continue after first thinking of stopping. as a replacement you can always use Thunderbird made by the mozilla people. i use it and it spretty good in such a early stadium :)

    its being stopped as a Standalone app, but it will continue to come with Windows, so you want the next version you gotta pay the price tag for the next windows OS

    Basically there's no more OE.
    Towards businesses they are going to say that you should be using Outlook anyway (expense, not -all- businesses want to use that virii haven, or want to buy the MS Office suite)
    Towards end users, they are going to try and get everyone using MSN (more expense, subscription based services, yeck)

    Myself? I'm sticking with the free and open source ThunderBird mail client thankyouverymuch.
