Setting up email in Windows Live Mail Print


1. With Windows Live Mail 2011 open, select the 'Accounts' option from the top menu bar. 

2. Click the Email button. 

3. On the window that appears fill out the options as follows: 

Email Address: your full email address - eg [email protected] 
Password: your mail box password 
Display name: Your name exactly as you want it to appear to recipients when they receive email from you 

Check the 'Manually configure server settings' option 

4. Click Next. 

5. 'Configure server settings' should appear. Fill out these options as follows: 

Incoming server information :- 

Server type: IMAP (recommended) or POP3 (either can be used here) 
Server address: mail.<domain> - replace <domain> with your domain name, so for example mail.foo.com 
Port: 143 (If using IMAP) or 110 (for POP3
'Requires a secure connection (SSL)' should remain unchecked 

Authenticate using: Clear text 

Login user name: your full email address - eg [email protected] 

Outgoing server information :- 

Server address: mail.<domain> - replace <domain> with your domain name, so for example mail.foo.com 
Port: 25 - however some ISPs do block port 25 for external mail services, so if you experience difficulties sending email then you should try port 587 
'Requires a secure connection (SSL)' should remain unchecked 
'Requires authentication' should be *checked* 

6. Click Next. Windows Live Mail will display a 'Finished' message, connect to your mail box and download all email.
