    I was trying to set up windows mail for the first time, al was going well
    then I got the following message,
    Host IMAP cold not be found, please verify that you have entered the server
    name correctly.
    Your IMAP command could not be sent to the server, due to non - network
    errors.This could, for example, indicate a lack of memory on your system.

    What do I need to do to rectify this? this is all new to me, thanks

    IMAP is not a valid server name, although it is valid as a protocol. Ask
    your
    email provider for their instructions for setting up to use their email
    servers,
    which should include the correct server names. Many people choose their
    internet providers as their email providers also, since most internet
    accounts
    include one or more email accounts. If they haven't written instructions
    for
    Windows Mail yet, their instructions for Outlook Express should also work
    under Windows Mail if they don't call for the HTTP protocol. The
    instructions
    are probably somewhere on their web site. Or, you could tell us who your
    email provider is, and see if anyone here already knows where to find their
    instructions.

    IMAP is not a valid server name. The correct server names depends on
    which email provider you are using, so ask them. Many people choose
    their internet providers as their email providers also, since most internet
    accounts include one or more email accounts. If they haven't written
    instructions for Windows Mail yet, their instructions for Outlook Express
    should also work under Windows Mail if they don't call for the HTTP

  8. Delete the IMAP account.
    Start a new account and specify POP3 for the protocol.

    Note that neither IMAP nor POP3 is a valid server name, although both
    are valid protocols.

  14. You do not have the correct mail server name.
    Who is your email service provider? Or to ask that question another way,
    what is the part of your email address after the @ symbol?
    Your mail provider will typically have a web page that shows how to
    set up an email program. If you need more help, tell us the name of
    your email service provider.

    I am also trying to set up windows mail using IMAP. I use AOL and do have
    the instructions giving the server name as imap.aol.com for incoming and
    smtp.aol.com for outgoing, using port 587, but after setting it all up I get
    the message that the imap command could not be sent due to non-network
    errors. Also, aol instructions say that it requires authenticated smtp for
    outgoing but when I tried this then I got the error message failed. None of
    the authenticated methods supported by imap server are supported by this
    computer.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong?

  16. I don't understand your statement "None of the authenticated methods
    supported by imap server are supported by this computer."
    The computer will do whatever it is told to do by the email program.
    Set the account up per these instructions:
    http://postmaster.aol.com/imap/express.html

    If you get an error message, copy the complete error message and
    post it here.

  18. A server is a big computer in the sky where your emails are temporarily
    stored until you are ready to download them. But you don't need to know
    that in order to use Windows Mail successfully.

    Who provides your email service? Or to ask that question another way,
    what is the part of your email address after the @ symbol?
    Your mail provider will typically have a web page that shows how to
    set up an email program. If you need more help, tell us the name of
    your email service provider.

    Who provides your email address?
    You have to use whatever they provide.
