Hi all
Advice please my wife has just bought a lap top which has vista loaded on it and a pc which she uses upstairs with vista as well, we run a home network through a belkin router and all is working well.
She wants to set up windows mail account with a new email address so in fact she can keep the lap top address for friends and family only
How can we do this?
Kind regards
dakar

I don't have Vista, but would think start the program then check in menu to setup a new mail account. You will need a ISP to use, and User Name and Password

Unless she has another e-mail address with her ISP then I suggest she sets up something like a Google mail account and accesses that through Windows Mail. It is fairly straightforward to set up on Windows Mail remembering that the smtp address will be the same as on the pc otherwise she will not be able to send.
