  • Hi! This is support forum for Windows Live Writer...

    This e-mail is HOAX or SCAM. Please do not respond on this and mark this as SPAM (junk). If you receive this or a similar message, please do not forward it to your friends and colleagues. Forwarding unsolicited chain letters wastes time and bandwidth. Your MSN services will still be same.
