  4. Did changing the server to mail.bellsouth.net fix your problem? It is
    helpful if you acknowledge what fixed it, so we know what to tell the next
    person who has that same problem.

    No, Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail are different email programs.
    Microsoft has stopped developing Windows Mail, and will only work on
    improving Windows Live Mail.

    So, if I buy a new copy of Vista, I'll get Windows Live Mail instead of
    Windows Mail?

  6. No. Windows Mail is the only email program included on the
    Vista install DVD. Apparently it is a bit of a political football
    at this point, in that MS does not want to openly admit that
    it made a mistake releasing Windows Mail before it was ready.

    Hello shelley
    You have to ask your ISP ( Internet Service Provider ) which wil
    provide you :
    1.) In-coming e-mail server name which should start with POP ...
    2.) Out-going e-mail server name which should start with SMTP ...
    3.) Your display nam
    4.) Password
    All the above are to be given by your ISP. You don't get to choose
    ISP is the company that connects your computer to the internet, yo
    know, the person who came in and installed the cable
    When you obtain those infos, you can then set up your Windows Mai
    account
