How do I set up my email account in Windows Live Mail?

 

  1. With Windows live mail open click the add email account link
  2. Enter the following information:
  3. Email Address: Enter your full mail address (e.g., john@example.com).
  4. Password: Enter your password.
  5. Your Name: Enter your name as you would like it to appear in the "From" field of your outgoing messages.
  6. Click the check mark box that says Manually configure server settings
  7. For your server information enter:
    • Incoming (POP3) Server: 'mail.yourdomain.com'
    • Outgoing (SMTP) Server: 'mail.yourdomain.com'
  8. For your Login ID: enter your full Email Address.
  9. Click on the check mark box for “Outgoing Server Requires Authentication”
  10. Change your outgoing server setting to 25. While this setting should work, some ISP's (such as Telstra) block this port. If you have trouble sending mail, change this setting to first 465, and if your issues aren't resolved, 587.
  11. Click next then finish to complete your email setup
