    Re: windows mail

    You get that information from your email provider.
    Do you have an existing email address? If so, tell us the part after
    the @ symbol.
    If you don't have an existing email address, the company that you pay
    for your Internet connection will be glad to provide you with one.
    Who provides your Internet connection?

    Re: windows mail

    Windows Mail can't handle most MSN and Hotmail accounts.

    Upgrade to Windows Live Mail (WLM), which is able to handle your
    MSN account. When you give WLM your MSN.com email address, it
    will automatically configure the correct server information:

    Re: windows mail

    "Windows Live" is the group name for a whole suite of programs.
    You must select only Windows Live Mail from the list of available programs.
    Go to http://get.live.com/wlmail/overview and click on "Get it free".
    This downloads the installer. Run the installer, which may offer several
    additional programs. Decline those and only install the Windows Live
    Mail email program.

    Re: windows mail

    The reason i want to use Windows mail is so I can use my stationary from
    Cloudeight in my e mails. Man and Windows live has no options for stationary
    but Windows mail does. I have tried putting my msn.com after POP3 and SMTP
    but the message comes up they can't find that sender.So i am still at a loss
    on what to enter.

    Re: windows mail

    Windows Mail does not accommodate MSN accounts unless
    you have the type of paid account that has POP access.

    Windows Live Mail (WLM) does have the stationery feature, but I don't know
    if it is compatible with Cloudeight stationery. You should ask that question
    in the WLM newsgroup:
