    Does anybody yet know if fund updates will continue, even if only
    sporadically for certain funds?

    I've been limiting my investing to funds that do still update - but
    wondering if I am wasting my efforts if everything is going to get turned
    off eventually.

    I don't know for sure but think it's unlikely to continue. My M&S fund
    hasn't updated for about a month now. I am using TrustNet to get manual
    updates. Nowhere near as convenient but better than nothing.

  3. From http://www.microsoft.com/money/faq.mspx:

    (This applies to the US versions of Money, so it is unknown for how long
    UK Money users will have access to the Online Services. Certainly, after
    31 January 2011 there will be no access because the services will no
    longer exist.)

    When do online services expire?

    Per the End User License Agreement for Money Plus Deluxe, Premium and
    Home & Business products, online services continue for two years after
    initial activation or until 1/31/2011, whichever comes first.

    What happens when my online services have expired?

    When online services expire, Money no longer supports online quotes nor
    direct online banking (including bill-pay). Money can still process bank
    statements imported from your bank’s Web site (if available), and quotes
    can be manually updated.

    Can I get quotes after online services expire?

    No. Online quotes are part of the online services. Users can still
    manually update quote prices once online services have expired.

    Money will still be able to get quotes via OFX. I would not be
    surprised if somebody made an application to read another quote
    server and produced an OFX file with quotes in it. Also, some
    brokers and fund companies put quote info for securities that you
    hold into the OFX files they already provide.

    Note that http://www.quotetracker.com/qsources.shtml gets info from
    various sources. It used to be a free application that did screen
    scraping from the quote data supplied by the customer's own broker,
    and then use that info as it's data. It apparently has official
    relationships with some brokers, so it may not have to screen-scrape
    those. It would be interesting to combine his technology with
    production of OFX files to feed to Microsoft Money.
