    I just bought a new laptop and it came with vista and a new version of
    microsoft. I have several email acounts my question is do I have to create an
    email with Windows Mail? or can I emerge an email account such hotmail to the
    new microsoft windows Mail. I tried going to tools and tried to add a new
    account but it asked me for the my server and I don't know what POP3 or IMAP
    or HTTLP? Can someone help me please.

  2. Microsoft recently enabled POP access for free Hotmail/Live accounts.
    Follow the settings given here:!CC9301187A51FE33!49799.entry
    Use port 587 rather than port 25 for the SMTP server.

    Although it accepts the newer addresses, Windows Mail's
    account setup wizard is hard-coded to reject Hotmail and MSN addresses.
    So, when you enter your Hotmail/MSN email address initially, use a fake
    one, such as . After the account setup is complete,
    go back and correct your email address.
