Brief: Microsoft Working On Developer Platform For Windows Live Mail

The toolset will let other vendors make their software compatible with the new mail edition.

Microsoft Corp. is working on a Windows Live Mail developer platform that will provide the tools needed for third-party developers to build their own applications for the Web mail product.

Imran Qureshi, a Microsoft program manager who had worked on the user interface for Live Mail, said in his blog that he has shifted jobs and is now working on the application-development platform for Live Mail, along with its calendar and contacts features.

Microsoft currently provides information for extending other Windows Live products in its MSN Developer Center. Windows Live is the brand name of Microsoft's initiative to make all its software available over the Web as a service.

Windows Live Mail, available in beta, sports a user interface that's an improvement over MSN HotMail, as well as more security features, a spell checker and a new search engine that scours message bodies.
