  1. If you have opened Windows Live for the first time, skip the initial wizard

  6. Enter your Display Name

  7. Tick "Manually configure server settings"

  8. Click on Next

    Windows Live Mail


  9. Select Incoming Server Type as a POP or IMAP server. We'd suggest using POP, it keeps a copy of your email on your computer so that view it even if you're offline

  10. Enter the Incoming Server address as pop.yourdomain.com (‘imap.yourdomain.com’ if you are using IMAP)

    Note:
    If you have a Linux Hosting package, set the Incoming Server address to 'mail.yourdomain.com'

    If you have a Windows Hosting package, set the Incoming Server address to 'yourdomain.com'

  11. Set the Incoming Port as 110 (Note - If you're using IMAP, you need to set it to 143)

  12. Select Authenticate Using as Clear Text

  13. Enter your Email address as Logon user name

  14. Enter smtp.yourdomain.com as the Outgoing mail address

    Note:
    If you have a Linux Hosting package, set the Outgoing mail server to 'mail.yourdomain.com'

    If you have a Windows Hosting package, set the Outgoing mail server to 'yourdomain.com'

  15. Tick "Requires authentication"

  16. Click on Next

    Windows Live Mail

  17. Click Finish

    Windows Live Mail


That’s it. You're all set to use your email account on Windows Live
