To set up your emails in Windows Live Mail, please follow the below steps. You will need all your email account settings to continue, if you do not have this information then please email our support team on, or by giving us a call on 01622 200045.


The details you will require are;

Email Address:
Incoming POP hostname (server address):
Outgoing SMTP hostname (server address):
Password: ********


Step 1:

Open up Windows Live Mail and then on the toolbar at the very top left, click on Accounts > Email;


Step 2:
 Fill in the email address, password with your email account settings. The display name can be anything you like, but we recommend entering this as your email address.


Step 3:

On the next screen, make sure the Server Type is set to POP. Enter in your Incoming hostname into the Server Address box that is on the left, and your username (email address) into the Logon user name box that in the bottom left.

On the right hand side, enter in your Outgoing SMTP hostname into the Server Address box, and then just tick the box that says Requires Authentication.  


Click on Next, and then you are finished.
