As I am still a novice could you please help me ?
I have just purchased a new PC (going from XP to Vista) and I managed to connect to the internet with ease but I cannot send or recieve email because when I go into Windows mail it keeps asking me for a user name and password,

Now I cannot remember ever giving a user/password on my old XP PC,
Is there any way to get round this as I have tried a number of names and passwords I may have used before but got no joy......Thanks Alan

You will need to enter your account information under Tools\Accounts|New Account the information will be available on your ISP's website. The username\password should be the same as the one you used to set up your internet connection.
