  1. Hello,

    Can you explain me how to use my "Windows Live Hotmail" account in "Windows
    Mail" ?

    I paid every year my account to "Windows Live Hotmail", for my mail.
    But, "Windows Mail" doesn't want to log to my account.

    Why ? How to remedy ?

    Thank you !

    PS : I'm sorry for my bad English, I am French.

  4. Hi Julien,

    Hopefully, the Edit copy edit paste worked
    and I can PASTE IN the instructions from Microsoft.

    Basically, you canNOT use Windows Mail with your Live Account. To set up the
    NEW Windows mail account, you have to enter the information provided to you
    by your "internet service provider." for example, if your Original Provider,
    BEFORE you signed up for Windows Hotmail, Windows LiveMail, and the such
    was for example, Time-Warner, RoadRunner cable, such as mine, or another
    such as perhaps AOL or, (whatever company), I see you are in
    You were given two "numbers" when you signed up, for internet service,
    using internet explorer or whatever, a POP account number for outgoing mail,
    and a STMP number for Incoming Mail. In order to use
    Microsoft Mail, you need to sign up with an INTERNET PROVIDER, such as I am
    signed up with Time Warner. the YOUR company, who
    provides your internet service. AND we are going through the same issue:)

    Look on your internet service provider bill, or call them and ask. In the
    you were given a set of numbers to keep, (I Just found my file folder, whew),
    :) for example:


    POP Server: (Incoming Mail)
    STMP Server: (outbound Mail)
    Internet Provider ADDRESS: 76.17343.193
    Default Gateway:
    subnet mask
    DNS Service:

    ALL Windows Mail needs are your POP Server, and your STMP server. In Windows
    Mail, click on HELP, and enter your INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER, numbers. Below
    I will attempt to paste
