Before you start, you need to set up an email account within the control panel. Please see our instructions for this here.

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

Click the "add e-mail account" link in the left hand pane.

Enter your email address, password and display name.
Tick the box for "manually configure server settings for email account" and click [NEXT].

On the next page enter...
My incoming mail server is a [POP3] server
Incoming server: [please check this in your instructions] port [110]
Make sure there's no tick for "this server requires a secure connection (SSL)".
Log on using [Clear text authentication]
Login ID: [bob@domain-name-here.co.uk]
Outgoing server: [please check this in your instructions] port [225]
Make sure there's no tick for "this server requires a secure connection (SSL)".
Tick the box for "my outgoing server requires authentication"
 
click [NEXT] & [FINISH]

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 right-click over the account you've created and select properties. Next, go to the advanced tab, either remove the tick for leaving mail on the server or tick the box for remove after 5 days.



Note: Please bear in mind that it can take 24-48 hours for new domain name settings to filter through the Internet and nobody will be able to send emails to you until this has happened.
