Some of the background processes of Windows Live Mail are rather
slow. Checking for new messages every minute is far too
frequent, and may cause problems.
You will also experience problems, if your touchphone is trying
to download emails at the same time as WLMail.
Try the following:
1. Try increasing the frequency to 10 minutes.
2. Turn off the touchphone.
3. The usual format for an Orangehome email address is
'someone@newsgroup Check the account details in
WLMail. The name field should include your full User Name
(everything after the @ symbol), not just the 'yourname' part.
3. Check that you can use a web browser to sign into your
email account via the webmail interface. If you cannot access
via the webmail interface, there is a problem with your username
