Windows Live Mail 2010

Because Windows 7 doesn’t come with an e-mail application pre-installed, customers will need to purchase a 3rd party application or use Microsoft’s recommended Windows Live Mail: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail?os=other

If the menu bar isn’t viewable after you download Windows Live Mail click on the Menu icon in the upper right side of the application to display it.

To add an e-mail address click on Add e-mail account on the left side of the page.

Enter the following information:

Account Information:
E-mail address
= Type your MHTC e-mail address.
Password = Type your MHTC e-mail password.
Remember Password should be selected unless you want to enter it each time for security reasons.
Display Name = Type your name (as you want it to appear when you send an e-mail).

Click Next.

Server information:
Server Type
= POP3
Incoming Mail Server = mail.mhtc.net
Outgoing Mail Server = smtp.mhtc.net

Note: Default incoming and outgoing server port numbers are 110 & 25 respectively. If you use a different ISP for your DSL connection you may need to change the outgoing port to 587.

Click Next.

If you have more than one e-mail account set up under this user account, choose whether you want this e-mail address to be the default.

Click Finish.

Note: You will need to access the advanced settings of your account if you need to set up your email to leave a copy of messages on the server. This is important if you check your email on multiple devices such as a cell phone, work and home computer, iPad, etc. You must also specifiy a number of days to leave messages on the server or you may get an Over Quota! message from MHTC. The screen should look similar to this one:
