how do i sign into my Windows Live email account from another PC.
Everytime i search for "Live" i'm asked to set up my hotmail inbox or just
"windows mail"

All i want to do is access my Live email.

What URL do i use???

Thanks

Use IE

In IE's address bar enter mail.live.com or hotmail.com
They are the entry points for the Windows Live Hotmail web interface.

Note:
- it does not load an email client(Windows Live Mail)
- it does open a web page

Windows Live email accounts are Hotmail accounts. If you are using a third party email account that was registered as a Live ID,
you do not have a Hotmail inbox.

Access your Virgin account through their web site, not Live(mail.live.com or hotmail.com)

Are you using Windows Live Mail as a local email client on your computer? If
so, there is no way to do what you ask. WLM does not "serve" email to other
clients, it only downloads email from servers.

Use your mail provider's webmail portal.

Hi, jabberwocky.

When I'm away from my only computer, I find a computer with an internet
connection and use Mail2Web.com. http://www.mail2web.com/

It's free and and lets me, "Pick Up Your Email. From any computer, anywhere
in the world. No need to register!" It even allows me to Reply to messages
from that computer, using my own email address. My experience is only with
POP3 mail, but the site says it works with IMAP4, and it offers several
other services.

It seems too good to be true, but I've used it many times over the past
several years, always with good results. I've even used it from my own
computer to delete "stuck" emails that were too large for my system to
handle, or that may have been carrying malware of some kind.

The only problem has been when I've forgotten the URL or typed it in wrong.
There are several similarly-named sites that appear to do the same service,
but require registry or payment. I can't comment on these because I've
always aborted their connections and found the right one.
