Windows Live Mail is the desktop email application of Office Live, introduced with Windows 7. Windows Live Mail replaces Outlook Express in Windows XP and Windows Mail in Windows Vista. You can use Windows Live Mail to access most free email accounts, such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail, as well as those offered by Internet service providers. You can also set up your IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) account to use Windows Live Mail.

Open the Office Live email application. Click "Start," select "Programs" or "All Programs" and select "Windows Live Mail" from the "Windows Live Folder." Go to the "Tools" menu and select "Accounts" to open the "Accounts" dialog box. If you do not see thetoolbar, press the "Alt" key to display it. Click the "Add" button, select "Email Account" and click "Next." Type in the complete IMAP email address, such as "name@emailprovider.com" into the "Email Address." Enter the password for that account in the "Password" box. Enter the name you want displayed to email recipients in the "Display Name" box. Select the "Manually Configure Server Settings for Email" check box and click "Next." Select "IMAP" in the "My Incoming Mail Server Is" list. Enter "imap.ispname.com" into the "Incoming Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Type "smtp.ispname.com" into the "Outgoing Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Click "Next" and then click "Finish." Hope this helps.

I can't received my email using window 10 livemail, need help


No you haven't. :>)

LiveMail is now dead as they used a system called DeltaSynch.

You have to set up brand new accounts using a system called IMAP. Once your mail accounts with Hotmail or MSN are set up, your mail will load. Once you have it all, check the mail and folders in both accounts and then delete the original accounts.

Hotmail IMAP Settings To configure your Hotmail with an email client that supports IMAP and SMTP, you can use the following settings in your email app.
Incoming (IMAP) Server
  • Server address: imap-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 993
  • Encrypted Connection: SSL
Outgoing (SMTP) Server
  • Server address: smtp-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked)
  • Authentication: Yes
  • Encrypted Connection: TLS
User name: Your full Hotmail email address, including '@hotmail.com'.
Password: Your Hotmail account password
Normally you should set up your Hotmail account via IMAP protocol. Basically IMAP sync your Hotmail account among different devices and computers, not only the Inbox folder. Also any operation you performed one a device will be synced to the Hotmail server and other devices or mail clients connected to your Hotmail account. POP3 however simply download your emails from your Inbox folder offline. You can them manage emails on your local computer. However under some circumstances, you may also find POP3 mail actually works better than IMAP email. Check out more details here: What are POP3, IMAP and their pros and cons?

Cannot access my hotmail a/c comes up server not found


Servers provide information for websites, hold Web pages, protect other computers from infection, provide authentication services and hold large numbers of files. Servers also connect email systems together. The average Web surfer encounters many servers in a day without realizing it. The mention of servers only arises when things go wrong. For example if the Hotmail Mail Server is inaccessible the user will receive an error message that the server cannot be found.

Client-Server In standard network communication all computers fall into one of two categories: clients and servers. Servers are bigger computers with large storage capacity and fast processing power. A server centralizes services that enable applications running on client computers to have access to more resources than their own computer could handle. The client is the local computer, the one the user accesses. The local computer, the client, contacts a remote computer, the server, with a request for a service. If the server is available, it responds with the requested service or resource. b> Hotmail Hotmail uses several types of servers. The screen the user accesses is actually an email client. It lists delivered email and enables users to write new emails. Originally, this program was always resident on the user's computer. Hotmail revolutionized the provision of email services by making this interface available on a website. The website itself is hosted on a Web server. The chain of clients and servers in a simple email transaction with email can soon become complicated. The user, on a home computer, is sitting at the client. The client program is the Web browser. The Web browser contacts a Web server to get and display the Hotmail page. b> Hotmail Servers b> Although the Hotmail page is resident on a server, it is a mail client and is also called a Mail User Agent, or MUA. It sends all outbound emails to a server called a Mail Submissions Agent, or MSA. The MSA sends the email to a server called a Mail Exchange, or MX, which then forwards it to another server called a Mail Delivery Agent, where the email sits until the user commands the mail client to go and find any new emails. b> Missing Server b> The server that Hotmail reports it was not able to find could be the Mail Submissions Agent, the Mail Exchange, or the Mail Delivery Agent. If the message arise during the sending of an email, the likelihood is that it is the Mail Submissions Agent that could not be contacted. If the error message occurs when Hotmail goes to find new received emails, it is likely to be the Mail Delivery Agent that could not be contacted. In either case, the user's connection is with the Web server and not either of these servers. There is little that the user can do to fix this problem other than try again later.

Cant receive emails frm Hotmail with Windows 7 (new to me). I'm told to "Enable IMAP" How?


Web mail is web mail. There should be no configuration on your part. Test with another web browser.

There is a configuration if you are using client (app) like Outlook.

I want to know if there's a way / software to sync my Samsung SGH-i607 with my Gmail account.


Yes, the SGH-i607 can support an IMAP account, and Gmail can be accessed through IMAP. They don't list the SGH-i607 as a supported client, but it should be possible to configure it to work with Gmail.
First, go to your gmail account and enable IMAP:
Sign in to Gmail. Click the gear icon in the upper-right and select Gmail settings at the top of any Gmail page. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Select Enable IMAP. Click Save Changes.
Next, configure the SGH-i607:
While in standby mode, press the left soft key for Start Select Messaging Select New Account (3) Select Other (POP3/IMAP), using the navigation keys Press the right soft key for Next Enter your name & E-mail address, using the Qwerty keypad Press the right soft key for Next For User Name, enter your full email address (including @gmail.com), using the Qwerty keypad . For Password, enter your Gmail password. For Domain, enter gmail.com. Press the right soft key for Next. For Server Type, choose IMAP. For Account Name, enter your full email address (including @gmail.com). Press the right soft key for Next. For Incoming Server, enter imap.gmail.com and select "Require SSL connection". For Outgoing Server, enter smtp.gmail.com and select "Outgoing server requires authentication". Press the right soft key for Next. Select desired message settings, using the navigation keys. Press the right soft key for Next. Select desired configurations for Storage and Connection. Press the right soft key for Next. After you have determined how often the device will connect, press the right soft key for Next. Setup will now be complete. Pressing the right soft key for Finish will enter the newly-created account in the Messaging application.

On nokia e5-00 getting notification unable to send message :darao@yahoo.com /connection not available can not remove this problen on my cell


But if you want to get around the Nokia Messaging then here is what to do:

 

Go to Mail on your phone  - Options - Settings -  scroll down to email - Options - New Mailbox

 

Click - start and then NO to allow connections (that stops Nokia Messaging swinging into control)

 

Now enter your hotmail address except do not put @hotmail.com at the end.  Put @abc.com

 

e..g. if you email is *****@yahoo.com then enter mailto:*****@abc.com

 

This is very important because if fools the phone into thinking this is a non hotmail email account. If you do not use this by pass, then when the operating system detects you are doing a hotmail, it simply tell you that it has made you a nice new bookmark for the hotmail web page.

 

Now enter your password - press OK

 

Now enter your correct hotmail address - e.g. *****@yahoo.com - press OK (this time you can use the yahoo)

 

Now you will get an error message saying unable to define settings and it will allow you to manually set the POP3 or IMAP. yahoo is of course POP3 so choose that.

 

OK - to the wizard intro

 

Mailbox POP3

 

Incoming mail server - pop3.live.com

Security - SSL/TLS - very important

 

Outgoing mail server  - smtp.live.com

Security  - Start TLS ----> THIS IS THE NEW SETTING THAT HAS RECENTLY CHANGED. BEFORE SSL/TLS WAS FINE BUT NOW THE MICROSOFT SERVER IS REJECTING SSL/TLS EMAIL WITH AN ERROR 530 MESSAGE/START WITH TLS.

 

SO PLEASE ENSURE THIS OUTMAIL SECURITY IS CORRECT - START TLS.

 

If you yahoo was working fine but suddenly it stopped working for outbound emails, then this is the setting you now need change.

 

Port Number - 25 (which is the default)

 

Some users have reported that it only works if you use Port 587 for outbound. This depends on whether or not not ISP is port blocking or not. I suggest you try 25 and if you still cannot send emails via hotmail, then change to 587.

 

The wizard should now complete the setup and in the list you should now see the new email but now it needs editing further so click options - settings (on the new email you have just added).

 

- Connection settings

 

- Incoming e-mail

 

- change the user name to the hotmail one i.e. change  *****@abc.com to *****@yahoo.com

 

leave password correct

 

leave incoming mail server pop3.live.com

 

access point - whatever is your default - I set to always ask

 

mailbox name - change this to *****@yahoo.com i.e. your yahoo address

 

leave mailbox type as pop3

 

leave security ports SSL/TLS - this is still okay for incoming mail

 

leave port - default

 

leave APOP as OFF

 

now back to OUTGOING MAIL SERVER

 

change my email address to your correct hotmail one i.e. ****@yahoo.com

 

change user name to your correct hotmail one i.e. *****@yahoo.com

 

leave password - it should be same as for incoming mail

 

leave outgoing mail server smtp.live.com

 

access point as you wish - mine is always ask

 

security ports should be StartTLS

 

Port - make sure it is 25 or 587 as above.

 

And there you go...it should work now.

How to setup push mail for samsung monte phone on gmail


I'm not sure if this is of any help
to anyone but these are the steps
I used to set up email on my
Monte. I'm using an old hotmail
account that didn't support IMAP
or SMTP properly.
1.Set Up a GMail account eg.
someone@gmail.com
2.Set GMail to allow IMAP via the
settings link the the top right
hand corner. (under Forwarding
and POP/IMAP)
3.Under accounts and import set
up the send mail as to send mail as
someone@hotmail.co.uk. Set this
to default send adress
4.In the same tab under check
mail using pop3 set up the pop3 to
recieve from someone@
hotmail.co.uk
5.Under Email Accounts on the
Monte set up email with the
following charecteristics:
Account Name: Hotmail
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 465
Secure Connection: SSL
Incoming Server Type: IMAP4
IMAP4 Server: imap.gmail.com
IMAP Port: 993
APOP login: greyed out
Secure Connection: SSL
Download Limit: 500
IMAP4 incoming email: New
Retrieving option: Whole Message
Keep on server: checked
My email adress: someone@
hotmail.co.uk (This is the adress
the phone puts in the from line of
an email)
Username: someone@gmail.com
Password: gmail password
Pop before smtp: greyed out
SMTP auth: checked
Same as POP3/IMAP4: checked
Username: greyed out
Passowrd: greyed out
This should allow you to recieve
new messages from the time you
set up the gmail account on your
phone and to send emails with all
the appearences of coming from
your hotmail account while
actually coming from google's
smtp server. Really do check that
the GMail is set up properly, make
sure it recieves emails adressed
to your hotmail and that it sends
in your hotmail account's name.

I receive my emails via Outlook... and have doing


POP and SMTP Access service is active. Once configured, POP Access allows you to download, read, manage, and send your Net@ddress Messaging Center email on your computer, both online and offline, using your favorite email client.

IMAP and SMTP services are active. IMAP is a method of accessing your email messages that are kept on a mail server. Once configured, IMAP allows you to download, read, manage, and send your email Messaging Center email using your favorite email client while online or offline. Using an IMAP-compliant email client such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Netscape Messenger, an IMAP user can access his/her email on the server from different locations, using both the IMAP client and the WebMail client. For example, when you read a message and store it in a special folder in your IMAP client while at work, you can access that message and folder while reading your email at home with the WebMail client or with another IMAP client without having to transfer messages or folders between computer stations.
