And people got 2010 and still working the kinks out it…this just sounds more like make more money and fix the bugs later problem…Do they ever stop to think hey what are we doing and are we causing more problems then we are fixing??? Most likely not…

Perhaps, like the Start button in Windows 8, this isn’t a bug at all - Microsoft simply discovered that users weren’t using the Inbox, Contacts, and Calendar at all and they decided to improve things by removing them? :stuck_out_tongue:

Agreed - a bug as dumb as this should not be in a Customer Preview. On the other hand, users should be aware that this is a beta release, and that it should not be used as a primary email or calendar tool. I plan on installing this on a laptop that has Win 8 Release Candidate on it. It is not my primary PC. If a user wants to safeguard against this happening, they should make sure that the option to delete email from server when deleting from Outlook is NOT checked. I don’t know how this bug might impact the Hotmail contacts or calendar. Hopefully, this will be fixed sooner than later.

“We weren’t using them anyway”.

Bug will be most likely addressed in SP3. Unfortunately, you’ll need SP3 to install SP3. Hail Gates and Company.

ROTFLMAO.

The problem is that most people have long histories of email that are no longer on the server.

I’d hope that users would back up their files before experimenting with Microsoft alpha software.
