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:

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 =
Outgoing Mail Server =

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:
