    Which version of Live Mail
    RTW -

    Was any version of a Live application(Mail, Messenger etc)previously installed ?

    Was the web installer or the full version installer used ?

    Security software disabled(AV, malware scanners)?
    Third Party Firewall(not Windows Firewall) disabled ?

    I followed instructions in Windows accounts internet connection wizard for
    email to for the download.

    There was no other versions previously installed.

    Used the web installer.

    Nothing was disabled, security or firewall.

    Is your problem with installing Windows Live Mail or the installing Gmail(setup of a Gmail account) in Windows Live Mail(the title
    of your post)?

    installing Live Mail first is the issue

    I have not got to the part where I set up my Gmail in Live Mail, which I
    believe is my only option if I want to use Windows Mail

    Windows Mail ???
    If you wish to use Windows Mail with a Gmail account, your gmail account settings(in the gmail web interface) need to be configured
    to permit Pop3/smtp. Search the Gmail help for the correct server(pop3/smtp), ports, SSL, and authentication settings.

    If the above is not what you want...lets first get on the same page with terminology
    Windows Live Mail = WLM = alternate email client for use in XP and Vista = capable of pop3, http, imap
    Windows Mail = WM = Vista included email client for use in Vista=capable fo pop3

    ms-mvp mail

    ooops - partly successful. The messages are coming in but I am unable to
    send. Any thoughts on solving this one? in addition, how can make sure that
    the Windows Mail and Gmail sync?

    thx again

    Verify your settings

    Outgoing server requires authentication(use same server as incoming or enter full username and password on the outgoing settings

    Username = <yourusername>
    Password = enter correct password, and check remember

    Incoming port 995
    Outgoing Port 465
    Both ports require SSL to be enabled('This server requires a secure connection')

    I am not sure what you are asking ?

    If you delete a message in Windows Mail, it still resides in your inbox in both places ?
