Do you want to set up an email account ?

Anyone can have an email address!

These days, email is a mandatory part of communication.

It's a cheap and easy way to send a message to anyone you know.


Decide what email provider you wish to use for your email service.

If you need a personal account for basic email activity, any of the major website email services can provide you with a package that will fit your needs.


The major free email providers are Google, Yahoo, and MSN Hotmail. For this article's purposes, we will be using Google's Gmail email service.


In your website's address bar, type www.google.com, and hit "enter."

In the top left-hand corner of the page, you will see the words "web", "images", "maps", "news", "shopping", "Gmail", and "more". Click on the word "Gmail."


You will be taken to the Google Mail access page. Since you do not have a Gmail account, you will click on the phrase "Sign up for Gmail" that is located on the lower right-hand side of the page.


Enter your first and last name in the boxes, then create your "desired login name."

This is the name that will be at the first of your email address.


For example, if your name is "Jane Doe" and you want your email address to reflect your name, you would put "JaneDoe" together in the desired log-in box.


Click on the "check availability!" button, to see if anyone else has already claimed your log-in name. If the name isn't available, Google will give you a list of available options that are similar to your requested login name.


If you do not agree with any of the recommended log-in names, then be creative by adding your birthday or another set of numbers that is memorable to you.


For example, "JaneDoe" may not be available, but "JaneDoe1966" might be up for grabs. Take your time with this step and develop a log-in name that is comfortable and important to you.


Create an email account password. Google requires your passwords to be a minimum of 8 characters in length.

You can create a password using letters, numbers, or symbols combined.


Passwords are tricky because you don't want to create one that you will forget, but you don't want to have a password that is too easy for others to guess.


Do your best to create a "strong" password that will withstand the attempts of potential hackers. A good password that could be virtually "unguessable" by others would be the combination of your grandmother's maiden name and her birth month and year.


For example, if your grandmother's maiden name is "Curtis" and her birthday is November 24th, your password could be "curtis1124." Note: if you capitalize any of your password's letters, then you must capitalize it every time you enter it.


Create a "security question."

This question might help you out later on, if you've forgotten your password and need help getting new one.


Choose a question from the selected questions and plug in your answer.

You should write down your question and answer so that you can remember it if need be.

The next step is to enter a secondary email address, but if you do not have another email you can leave this spot blank.


It is required to email your alternate address in the event you forget your password to this address.


Enter the "word verification" into the box.

The letters, numbers or symbols might appear a bit distorted, so be careful to decipher then correctly before you type them into the box.


This step is done for security and ensures that you are not a spammer.


Read through the "terms of service" to make sure you are clear on your accounts requirements.

If you agree with the terms, click the button "I accept.

Create my account" button.

Congratulations! You now have an email address!


Hope this helps

I can recieve email but I cant send any email out


If you can successfully receive e?mail messages, but can't send messages, then Windows Mail is having problems connecting to the outgoing e?mail server that's used to send messages. These are likely possibilities:
  • If you've never been able to send e?mail successfully using Windows Mail, your e?mail account is probably not set up properly. First, follow the steps to verify your e?mail account information in the "I can't receive e?mail" section of this help topic. If you verify that your e?mail account information is entered properly, you might need to change your authentication settings so that when sending mail, you sign in using your e?mail user name and password. Check with your e?mail provider to see if it requires authentication for sending e?mail.
    To use authentication when sending e?mail
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    5. If the account information that you use to send e?mail is not the same information that you use to receive messages, click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password that you use to send e?mail.
  • Many Internet service providers (ISPs) require you to be directly connected to their network to use their outgoing e?mail servers. If you're using a mobile PC and connect to the Internet using a different ISP (such as when using a wireless connection in a hotel), you might be able to receive, but not send, e?mail. Some ISPs will allow you to send e?mail when connected to a different provider if you use authentication when sending. Follow the previous steps to use authentication when sending e?mail. If your ISP doesn't allow this, you'll need to find out the name of the outgoing mail server for the ISP you're currently using, and then change the settings in Windows Mail to use it.
    To change the outgoing mail server settings
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then enter the new mail server in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) box.
    5. If the new outgoing mail server requires authentication, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    6. Click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password for the outgoing mail server.

I can't send or get e-mail when trying to use outlook on my touchpro 2


Try again make this settings my friend

The Mail tab is where you send and receive e-mail messages. Including Outlook E-mail, you can add up to four POP3/IMAP4 and web-based e-mail accounts in this tab.
To add an e-mail account
1. On the Home screen, slide your finger to the Mail tab.
2. If this is your first time to add an e-mail account, touch New Account on the bottom-right side of the screen.
3. Set up your e-mail account using the E-mail Setup wizard.
4. To add another e-mail account, touch Menu > Accounts > New Account and use the E-mail Setup wizard to set up your account.
For detailed instructions on setting up e-mail accounts using the E-mail Setup wizard, see Chapter 6.
To check e-mail
When there are new e-mails, the icon on the Mail tab and the respective icons of the e-mail accounts will show the number of newly received messages.





If you have installed the synchronization software on your computer and created a partnership with your device, then your device is ready to send and receive Outlook e-mail.
If you have not yet installed the synchronization software nor created a partnership, do so by following the procedures in Chapter 5.
Tip To set up your company e-mail account so that you can access Outlook e-mail messages wirelessly, you must set up your device to synchronize via an over-the-air connection with your company’s Exchange Server. For more information about synchronizing with your company e-mail server, see Chapter 7.
Add an e-mail account
To add a new e-mail account, you can do one of the following:
On the TouchFLO 3D Home screen, slide to the Mail tab and then touch Menu > Accounts > New Account; or
Tap Start > Messaging > Setup E-mail.
The E-mail Setup wizard then opens and lets you enter your e-mail account settings. See “E-mail Setup Wizard” in this chapter for details.

Sounds like your "Outgoing" mail server settings aren't correct.

Yahoo! E-Mail Server Settings

Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)
___________________________________________________________

What is the POP 3 address to send email using instead of using wi


You simple CANNOT. Windows Mail no longer supports the HTTP servers used by Yahoo! and other web-based e-mail providers. Windows Mail does not permit the use a Web-based (HTTP) e-mail account on a computer that is running Windows Vista.
For an alternative, use Windows Live Mail instead of Windows Mail

loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Windows Live Mail is an e-mail program that you install on your computer. Windows Live Mail stores messages on your computer. This means that you can access, read, and compose e-mail messages even when you are not connected to the Internet.

Windows Live Mail works with popular Web-based e-mail services such as Hotmail, AOL mail, Google mail, and Yahoo! mail. Windows Live Mail is built to automatically configure many popular e-mail services.

To install Windows Live Mail, visit http://download.live.com/wlmail
