The page will reload and take you to the new design of Gmail. Follow the welcome guide to learn all that's new in Gmail.
Hi Bharath, it is sad that rediff is asking you money for using your account which was offered free of cost to you. That's another story that unused accounts continue to use system resources without bringing in any sort of revenue. So, if it is as per their TOS, it is a fair decision. Now, coming to your questions:
There is no other way to activate your account. If the system is asking you to make a payment, then you just have to do that before gaining access to your rediffmail account.
No, you will not get your old emails. This is already specified in the screenshot which you have attached. See where it reads "data associated with your mailbox has been deleted".
Rediff must have warned you with several notification emails before finally deactivating your account and deleting all associated data. So, you won't get it back anymore.
Now, you should rethink if you really want to re-open your account. Making a payment of Rs. 49 + taxes will only make sense if you intend to use Rediffmail in the future.
Hi Daisy, I have looked as well and it seems that Microsoft has not yet added all the options into the beta. That's normal since it is still under development and not a final product.
However, I've found a way for you to make changes to the Inbox and Sweep rules without reverting to the standard version of Outlook.
Simply go to this link. The options panel of the standard version of Outlook will open. You can make your changes and the same will appear in the new (beta) version of Outlook as well.
You can also manage other settings for your mailbox which are inaccessible in the beta. The following is the reply from Microsoft support regarding the missing options:
This Outlook.com beta still is not the final product of this version and some features are not available as of yet since it is only trying to show the new interface of the Outlook.com program so it is normal for it not to show the other options for the mean time. If you really need to make a change to your Inbox and Sweep rules as for the moment, you can switch back to the previous version of your Outlook.com before this beta and you don't need to worry about missing the feature as this will eventually be applied to all users once the finished product comes out.
