Hi,

To my knowledge, Windows Mail has been upgraded with a more full-featured free downloadable application, Windows Live Mail integrates with Windows Live Contacts. Perhaps you may want to upgrade even before configuring Windows Mail for initial use.

Should you still want to use Windows Mail, configuration and setup wold be relatively easy by following Microsoft's tutorial/demo in video format here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm way too lazy to figure out how windows mail works, but the Internet tells me how.

http://email.about.com/od/windowsmailtips/Windows_Mail_Tips_Tricks_and_Secrets.htm

I think you're looking for your ISP's instructions, normally mail.isp.com or whatever. The above referenced link has tips on how to connect to even the public mail servers, so maybe you can use it.

Carl, and get a real mail client like Eudora :-)

    Syescas, I always figure free advice is worth every penny you pay for it. You needed a suggestion to make Windows Mail work, a program that, apparently, Microsoft doesn't support and that not many people use. I suggested that I was way too lazy to install it on my machine and play with it, but I did go out and find a site that had full interface instructions for getting most mail from ISP's.



    The last time I checked, I didn't come here to be your personal problem solver, big or little. I just offered you a source for a solution. Either accept it or reject it as helpful and move on. Whether you'd "use me" as a source to solve a big problem is immaterial, because you'd never get that opportunity.



    Understood?

    You must have received the email account from your Internet provider,

    You need to get the mail from a company, usually the one that provides your internet service. You will also need to know server detail. Also this information is provided by your internet company.

    Call Internet provider (company that gives you the internet) customer service number and ask mail server details.

    We are not lazy in solving your lil problem, we gave the solution, it is just that you do not want to understand it.

    You need to get this information from the mail provider, that often it is also your internet provider.

    When you are asked the Internet address to connect to. In the box labeled Internet address
    enter IP address provided in e-mail by company that is hosting your email. In the box labeled Destination
    name enter the name provided

    You need to call the company that provided you the email to find the information

    If you give us the email address you are setting up on Windows Mail we can try finding contact to your service provider to get information.

    See for example here for skype mail.

    Regards

Tip

Why can't you connect to the Internet?


First check your TCP/IP address - see my earlier tip on checking you are connected to a network. For most recent systems, (not Linux) open a command prompt window (type "cmd" in the RUN window from the start menu) and type ipconfig /all
you should see your network adapter name and IP address, a subnet mask (don't worry) and a default gateway, also a DNS server IP address. If ANY of these are missing, that's your problem, try repairing or resetting the network adapter. WRITE THEM DOWN. You may have more than one adapter, you need to identify which one is used for the Internet connection.
If they are all there, from the SAME window type "ping" followed by the IP address of your default gateway. If this fails, you have no connection to your internet router, find out why!
If this succeeds, type "ping" again, followed by the IP address of your DNS server. If this fails, type "tracert" and then the IP address of your DNS server. The FIRST address that will be reported is your default gateway; followed by your ISP address; if the only address you see is your default gateway, the link to your ISP  is down, give them  a call. If it succeeds, from the same window type "nslookup"
You will see a chevron prompt, type in the name of the site you want to go to, e.g google.com.
You should then see a reply from your DNS server, and an IP address for your required server. If not, then either your DNS server settings are wrong OR the server does not exist. It will be obvious which it is from the reply you receive. If the DNS settings are wrong, you can change them from the Control Panel, Network, Network adapter, Properties, TCP/IP v4 properties menu; try setting DNS server to 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4 and try again.

I have a Dell Dimension 4600 with a 2wire modem/router combo. The wireless internet connections work flawlessly with all wireless laptops, phones, games, etc. I cannot access the internet on the pc itself...


You may have a problem with your IP and DNS settings. Please use the instructions below

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).Click Properties. You will see a window like the one below. Please make sure that the settings are all set to automatic for your IP4 and/or IP6 connections.

If that doesn't work, please try to renew your ip settings.

This can be done with the following steps:
1. Open cmd.exe
Windows XP: Start - Run - cmd.exe
Vista/7: Window Button - type "cmd.exe" - Enter
2. Type "ipconfig/release"
3. Type "ipconfig/renew"
4. Wait for connection to establish.

Takes forever to connect with yahoo mail using firefox d


Try using the Windows internet explorer and if it is connecting fine then you need to uninstall and reinstall your firefox. There is a posible bad sector in the firefox software.

If the issue still the same and if you are using win vista go to Wlan / Lan properties set the TCP/IP IPv4 properties to automatic DNS and automatic IP address.

Then Uncheck the TCP/IP IPv6 - save changes.

If using other Ver of Windows call your ISP provider for further Troubleshooting.

I cannot get my windows mail working.


To get your windows mail for VISTA or XP working make sure you have correct setting from you internet provider like the POP3 and SMTP address. Call your internet provider tech support to ask for this info should be free. Enter your email account username and password where ever Windows Mail or outlook will ask for it.

PS. Make sure your connected to the internet first before trying to check your email. (Only if your on a ADSL connection)
