MSN Internet client

Microsoft will no longer support the MSN for Mac OS X Internet Software client, effective May 31st. Instead of accessing MSN services using the MSN for Mac OS X Internet Software, which is a local email client and dashboard for browsing MSN services, customers will now access MSN services and features via their preferred browser and by setting up a MyMSN page to serve as a portal to their favorite online destinations. Customers will retain their current MSN email address, address book, account data and mailbox size. They will simply access their e-mail account online from their MyMSN page or by connecting to the MSN Hotmail service. "Microsoft's Mac BU remains committed to the Mac platform and its customers, as evidenced by forthcoming products and enhancements that include the .PST Import Tool, MSN Messenger for Mac Version 5.0 and Service Pack 2 for Office 2004 for Mac."
