Changing your Windows Live Mail settings

On your PC, please load the Windows Live Mail software and do the following (and replace with your own domain)...

Right-click your email account in the left pane and select "properties".

Click the "servers" tab and make sure that all the details are correct for your account.

Make sure you tick the box for "My server requires authentication" then click [Settings].

Select "Use same settings as my incoming server" and click [OK].

Click the "Advanced" tab and make sure that the setting for Outgoing Mail (SMTP) is set to port 225 rather than the default of 25.

Please bear in mind that the default settings for this program will leave mail on the server indefinitely and this WILL cause you problems in the future. Therefore we recommend that you either remove the tick for leaving mail on the server or tick the box for remove after 5 days.
