    I need help in setting up new email account

    How do I set up a new email account in Windows mail? I don't understand what
    to type in for the server names. I also need to delete some other email
    accounts and have mail forwarded from those old accounts to my new account.
    please send detailed insturctions on how to do this. I have a Windstream
    email account, but don't know what to type in for the server names.

    You don't create a new email account in Windows Mail. You configure Windows
    Mail to access your existing email accounts.

    Try these directions for Outlook Express.. they are the same for Windows
    Mail
