Cannot consolidate MS accounts in Live Mail desktop?

So, I just downloaded this at work to get a peek at my hotmail account which
downloaded fine, but here is the first problem with another account.

My college e-mail recently migrated to using Windows Live instead of however
they were hosting it previously. I can successfully log in to both t he
hotmail account and this new college account fromany MS portal, but I cannot
manage to have the desktop version download from this new account.

I can even sign in to the desktop with the new account, but there are still
no messages besides what I already have for hotmail. The address is not
hotmail, but again, it is successful at sign in to Windows Live.

Am I missing an easy fix when I am signed in with this other account, or
must I truly "add" the account. When i do try this though, i am not sure what
type to choose as HTTP causes an error when trying to download the messages.

I have a couple more related, but separate, issues, so i am hoping this is
easily remedied.

Did you college account convert from a telnet to an Office Live or Outlook Web Access(OWA) type account ?

Since the address is not hotmail.com, msn.com, live.com, a requirement for DeltaSync and folder mirroring in WLM it appears when
you are logging into the account via a Msn Portal or browser you are using the web based interface of OL(new) or OWA.

The only other option..if the college email address offers pop3 access. If functional, note, you will only have the ability to
download the contents of the accounts Inbox...ie. no sync and mirroring of any other folder(s) visible.

Please excuse my inexperience, but i am not sure if the previous account was
telnet, but I do know that just as I can use my hotmail account to login to
Live Mail, so can I use the school account, so I am ASSUMING it is Office
Live as there is no mention of Outlook.

What does this DeltaSync and folder mirroring "prompt" read? Do I see this,
or is this occurring behind the scenes? I also do not know if the other live
accunt allows pop3 access. I can handle the mirroring?

Would it be easier to just add the account to my online hotmail account
instead of the desktop so that it is already there, or will i face the same
problem?

You are not logging in to Live Mail. The login is for live services such as
Calendar, Contacts, and Messenger. Using your school login will give you a
different Calendar and Contacts. I would also think a different Messenger.

You will not download email from any email server to Windows Live Mail
without adding the account.

Winston did not think that you had a hotmail.com, msn.com, or live.com
account.
You must have one of those if you can login to Live services.

The advice would be easier to give if you say which server is used
(hotmail.com, msn.com, or live.com).

A third party registered Live ID(ie..no hotmail/msn/live.com address) is capable of accessing Live...just no Hotmail.

So, to clarify, I DO have a hotmail account, which is the account that is
successfully being downloaded and synced in Windows Live Desktop.

I understand now why the sign in with the other account is accepted, but no
mail capabilities are gained.

In terms of "portals" I usually use the hotmail sign in for the functioning
account, and Live for the other, but form what I have seen, I can use either
address at either portal as long as it isn't simultaneous.

I am trying to have both of these account appear in the desktop version, but
as I mentioned, if this is a pain, could I possibly import the school e-mail
into the hotmail account so that everything appears in this ne account on the
desktop version.

There is not going to be much difference between settings up the school
account in WLMail or adding it to the Hotmail account.

What is the part of the email address after the @ sign?

I read these FAQ when the school distributed them, but I am still not savvy
enough in the way of Windows Live Mail Desktop to use these information in a
any meaningful way.

However, if the guys who are helping me on the other front can use the FAQs,
please use it as a reference.

That is, I think, the first mail service FAQ I have seen that gives
configuration data for Windows Live Mail:
http://8help.osu.edu/4019.html
(you have to ignore the typo in para 2.b.).
Just follow that to the letter and you should be good to go.

It also has some variation in write-up for other email clients..
e.g.Thunderbird unlike WLM - TLS is suggested for the Outgoing server instead of SSL


And a few other tidbits about Pop3 info is not present in the WLM directions
<qp>
The number next to "Incoming mail" should change to 995 (for POP) or 993 (for IMAP)
and
If you selected POP3 as your server type, under Server Settings, it's a good idea to select "Leave messages on the server". This
keeps a copy of the messages you retrieve to your local computer on the server. This also lets you access your messages from a
different mail application, for example, Buckeye Mail Web Access.

So, I am glad to ear your corrections to the FAQ, yet I am still unable to
download the school account into WLMail desktop.

Can you at least tell me which Qs in the FAQs apply to which part of the add
account process?

Are you asking me that, or is that the question that is supposed to help me?
I know how to navigate to the site and sign in.

I want to download this account that I can already access separately into
Live Mail desktop.

http://8help.osu.edu/4019.html

To configure Windows Live Mail to check Buckeye Mail:

Start Windows Live Mail.

Alt + T, click Accounts.

On the Accounts page, click Add.

On the Add an account page, select "E-mail Account", and then click Next.

On the "Add an E-mail Account" page:

In the E-mail address field, enter your e-mail address:
lastname.#@buckeyemail.osu.edu.

In the Password field, enter your Buckeye Mail password. If you want Windows
Mail to remember your password, select the check box next to "Remember
password".

In the Display Name field, enter your name as you want it to appear in the
"From" field of your outgoing messages.

Select "Manually configure server settings for e-mail account", and then
click Next.

On the next page of the wizard, under "Incoming Server Information":

In the drop-down menu under "Incoming mail server is a [type] server",
select POP or IMAP (What's the difference?). You might want to use IMAP
because it supports more features.

Under Incoming server, the server name for both IMAP and POP3 is:
outlook.com

Select "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)".

Under Log on using, make sure that "Clear text authentication" is selected.

Under Login ID (if different from e-mail address), type your full e-mail
address: lastname.#@buckeyemail.osu.edu


Under "Outgoing Server Information":

Under Outgoing server, enter pod51000.outlook.com .
Select the check box next to "This server requires a secure connection
(SSL)".

Select the check box next to "My Outgoing server requires authentication,
and then click Next.

On the "Your new account settings are complete page", click Finish.

On the "Accounts" page, click Close.

If you're using IMAP4 and the "Show/Hide IMAP Folders dialog box appears",
use the Windows Live Mail user interface to select which folders you want to
synchronize between the server and your local computer, and then click OK.

I am guessing from your non-response that your previous reply was your way of
indicating that this problem is not complex enough for your tastes, but I
could have done without the sarcasm.

Can anyone else actually help me?

it won't do it. another "feature" that will hopefully be added later. i'm
guessing to see an updated version sometime prior to 7 release.

I think Ron sent that reply by mistake, as he later gave you explicit
instructions on how to access your email.
