Not got a clue.I can use it to get to my Windows Live Mail. If I put my e-mail address and password in and press Mail when it opens. It gives me all of my mail. So like I said I am still not sure of the difference. Is there different versions of Windows Live mail. I don't use a Hotmail address but an MSN Address. It takes me straight to my e-mail account. I take it I am just being a bit thick again.
Sorry to have "confused" your thread - it will probably be to do with your SMTP server setting. Go to Tools - Accounts - Properties - Servers tab and check the outgoing server setting - must be that of your ISP regardless of which account it is.
Now I can see why I was confused and still am. Will you do me a favour and check my click here at 9.16 and tell me if it shows my e-mail address. I used it to see if it got me into my Windows live e-mail address and every time I open it it my e-mail address shows . I tried rebooting but still the same. Is it just showing for me or does it show for everyone.
