    I have the new vista with the windows mail and i had no problem adding my
    aol, verizon dsl to the windows mail but i am having trouble adding my
    verizon dsl with msn (hotmail) premium to the windows mail. What is the
    proper incoming and outgoing code, I never had a problem before with msn
    (hotmail) with outlook. what is this beta program through windows mail that
    takes a couple of weeks. Any help would make my day.

  2. POP3: incoming.verizon.net
    SMTP: outgoing.verizon.net

    SMTP requires authentification.

    I got my aol and verizon to work but i still can not get my msn/hotmail email
    to work. I see on other post that some how the windows mail can be tricked to
    accept msn/hotmail mail. Could you please direct me in the right direction or
    give m the proper steps to trick windows mail. Thank you for any help.

    BTJ gave you the correct servers. Now you need to trick the dumb wizard in
    WinMail so you can enter and use the msn.com email that Verizon gave you.

    So, using the wizard, set up everything the way it should be, except for the
    email ID use your . After it is all set up, go back via
    Tools /Accounts / select that acct / Properties... and edit the email back
    to your .

    Then, you should be good to go. Also, if you have trouble sending mail,
    make sure that the SMTP (outgoing) ID is set to your entire email address,
    not just your 'email-ID.'

    First of all, what does Verizon tell you the servers are called?
    Secondly, what was the setup you had when you had it on Outlook, before?
    The exact names, etc.

    I'm afraid that you are not providing enough info.

    Windows Mail does not support HTML-based email.
