Microsoft closing MSN Groups which will be replaced by Windows Live Groups

I received this mail today. Microsoft will be closing MSN Groups and MSN Communities Web Folders to make way for Windows Live Group. For the meantime, they recommend and partnered with Multiply and offered steps on how to migrate.

Dear MSN Groups Customer,

As a valued MSN Groups or MSN Communities Web Folders customer, we want to notify you that the MSN Groups service will close on February 21, 2009 and you will have the opportunity to move your group to our new partner service, Multiply. We understand the importance of keeping your group together, so we partnered with Multiply to create a migration process that moves your group to their service to preserve your online community and its history. Read on to find out about how to kick off the automatic migration of your group to Multiply.

We realize this may be unexpected, so before presenting your options we want to briefly share why we’ve made this decision.

In the long term we believe that closing the service is the best way to continue to offer innovative and effective services that help you stay in touch with the people you care about. We plan to launch a new Groups service in the coming weeks, but unlike MSN Groups, Windows Live Groups will focus on offering a place for small groups to collaborate. Multiply is available now, making it your best option today for continuing to share and communicate together online.
