Click the Next button.

Click I already have an e-mail address that I’d like to use.

Then enter in the box below your Internet access user names appended with @msn.com e.g. [email protected]. Do not use [email protected] as this will not work.

From the My Incoming mail server is a <> server dropdown menu, select HTTP.

From the My HTTP mail server provider is dropdown menu, select Other.

In the Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server textbox, type

click here .

I'm sure it works for "joe blogs" himself!!

Maybe because [email protected] is already used by MS?

I have followed the automated link you sent, this appeared to work but I still cannot send emails, or receive them. I have also began to follow your manual steps but the drop down instructions differ form what are listed on your instructions. Thanks for the info though and any further advice would be appreciated.

What do you get in the drop down?

Sorry for the delay in replying, basically the fields that appear are 'shaded'and are unable to be altered.

I have a vague recollection of this happening, but can't recall what the cure is. I hope this 'bump' will get a result for you.
