Problem adding new account to 'Mail' in Windows 8

Q: Problem adding new account to 'Mail' in Windows 8

I am trying to add several email accounts to 'Mail' in Windows 8.
So far I have successfully added Hotmail, and BT mail. I am now trying to add my 2 Virginmedia NTL accounts using the imap settings shown on the Virginmedia support site but neither of them install correctly...though they do work. The problem is the Folders list on the left hand side shows only Inbox, Flagged, Outbox and then for some very strange reason it lists (Gmail) Folders...see attachment Ntl account.doc.
I have tried deleting these folders but they come back after a few seconds.
I have also noticed that 'Mail' must keep details of additional accounts hidden away somewhere as whichever NTL account I create it always uses the first account name I ever entered...'Ntlworld' which was a typo...and all subsequent attempts to create this account have been spelt correctly.

Does anyone have an explanation for this strange behaviour.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Problem adding new account to 'Mail' in Windows 8

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Outlook.com is very funky with regular email accounts. If you are totally frustrated you could install windows live mail and see if that works better. You need to pick up Windows live essentials and do it as a custom install and just check off Windows Live Mail

OH JOY 'TIS ME AGAIN!

I do seem to have strange problems. Here's the story:
I have WLM & WM on my Vista pc. On my account it all works lovely with hardly any problems in one applicaton; open up WLM and my WM ([email protected]) is available also.

On the different user account, that is another story.
I can open up WLM or WM in seperate applications; open up WLM, close WLM, open up WM, close WM.
But WLM will not incorporate the WM account.
I tried ADD ANOTHER ACCOUNT but though it starts off well it does not go past the password point and either keeps flashing the password login box at me for ever or it says the email account name and or password is wrong.
Now here is the strange bit - on my other pc all is well with this WLM, it rocognises the user name and password of WLM and desk top application mail ([email protected]).

So do I give the different user Admin rights,will that make any difference? Or what?

Help would very much be appreciated!

RELEVANCY SCORE 65.6

Hello everyone,
I am trying to save my email messages from Outlook to the Mail program on my Mac Lion (OS X El Capitain). The problem is it won't let me use the POP protocole, only IMAP works. And I really need to use POP because I want to download my messages onto my computer instead of just viewing them from the server.

Strangely, when I try to add an account, it does it automatically in IMAP without letting me choose. But if I don't write the right info, it doesn't connect and on the next window then it lets me choose. So then I add all the info.
Incoming mail server: pop-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
Password: I'm using the 2 step verification so I'm using an application password
And I do have POP protocole activated in Outlook...

Still it won't let me add the account. Il gives the error message: Impossible to verify the name or password of the account. If I try a couple more times, it finally manages to create the new account however all the info is missing about the servers and the ports. So I add the missing info manually and yet it still doesn't work.

Thank you for your help.

I suppose that's a limitation of the Mac email program. Try Thunderbird. On both Windows systems and Linux distributions I've saved IMAP messages to my computers. Never used a Mac, but I suspect that Thunderbird works equally well on it.

I have two outlook/Hotmail accounts. One I log into the PC with (which is pretty crappy by the way and is a huge hassle in Windows 10 IMO).
In the mail app, I was able to add the mailbox of the one I use, however I have a second email account through Hotmail that when I try to add the account to the mail app, it asks me to verify with a pin. I have never used a PIN with this account. I went to settings and sign in option, and have an option to change the pin, however it is wanting to change the main account that I log into the pc. The pin appears to be 4 digits (it only allows 4 characters before it auto enters) unlike the main pin which is 8 or 9 numbers.

Thanks in advance,

A:Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app

Hi Bryan, welcome to the Ten Forums.
The PIN the Mail app asks for the verification when a new / another Microsoft email account (Outlook, Hotmail, Live, MSN) is added is the PIN for the Microsoft Account you use to sign in to Windows.

An example: Let's say your Windows 10 sign-in MS account is [email protected], and when signed in using that MS account you want to add your second Microsoft email address [email protected] to the mail app. You enter the credentials for the [email protected], and when done, the Mail app wants to check you are really the user [email protected], the user currently signed in to Windows. To verify this you need to enter the PIN of the current Windows sign-in account, the one of [email protected]

I've only seen this to happen when adding any of the Microsoft's email accounts to the mail app. Adding for instance a Gmail account does not ask it.

Confusing, I have difficulties to understand myself what I just wrote! I hope you get it, though.

Hi,

Im just looking for some advice on how to fix a problem im having, when trying to setup my new business email address on thunderbird email client.

Ive had a website designed & an email address supplied with it. The web designer gave me all the details to setup the email account. Everytime I try to set it up, I get an error message saying "thunderbird failed to find the settings to your email account".

Ive entered all the details I have : IMAP, POP3 & SMTP port numbers, Incoming & Outgoing Servers, along with my username & password.

I told the web designer the problem & he tried to setup the account on his pc using thunderbird. He said the account worked fine & he sent some test emails to confirm that it worked ok.

I have also tried using the free email client the comes with windows 7 & im having the same problem.

Could there be something that im unaware of, blocking the email setup ?

Im currently using norton 360 antivirus software & ive tried looking at these settings, but im not really sure what im doing.

All suggestions welcome,

Thanks.

Hi,

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

yes
if you are using windows live mail, even logged into WLM you can download mail to your other account
I have 5 accounts using WLM
You need to set a new account for each one of them
Once you set it up you just click on the Send/Receive Icon at the top of the program and it will bring in mail to each account

Hi, I am asking on behalf of an elderly gent, first of all a bit of history.

He had a desktop running windows XP for years, however it started playing up and he decided to buy a new one. The guy in the shop (PC world) set it up for him and he took it home.

The problem is he set it up with the administrator account being associated with a really old e-mail ( I can only assume he got the details from the old chap himself) and for which he doesn't know the password. He took it back to PC world and they simply placed a pin number on the login with the old e-mail and he now uses that to unlock his PC. Still not too much of an issue until he tries to change something which required administrator permission and for which the password is required.

I went to see if I could help and when I tried to change the e-mail to his more recent one the old e-mail isn't even listed. The computer is saying that the e-mail associated is the new one?????

Tried restarting to check the login and its the old e-mail. Don't know what's going on and PC world don't seem to know how to sort this either.

Since the computer is new I thought I'd try a factory restore but it asks which account needs to be restored and asks for the password again. I'm really stuck here and I cant fathom what to do.

newcomer just looking for an answer to: how one forwards their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?
 

A:How does one forward their outlook mail account to an aim.com mail account?

There are no such things as Outlook mail accounts (in the context of your question anyway). Your mail account is on a server where Outlook fetches mail from.

The better way to set up mail forwarding is on the server. If you have some sort of a web interface or a shell account, then you may be able to set the forward address yourself. Otherwise, talk to the mail server administrator.

You can set up mail filtering rules in Outlook too, which say that whenever Outlook receives a new message, it will send it so somewhere else. This approach is very bad though, since you would have to have your Outlook running 24/7 to keep the forwarding ability.

I can only guess that the Account.equals() method in Windows' codebase looks like this:
{
return this.emailAddress == account.emailAddress;
}

A while back, I realized I no longer needed my Hotmail address, and set up my Microsoft account to use my G-mail address. This simplified things quite a lot for me. This is the account I use to log into Windows 8.
I just decided to try out the much-hated Mail app, and set up my G-mail account there. After some imperfectness, I thought about just removing it and using Chrome G-mail on its own. However, I ran into this:
They seem to falsely think that my G-mail account is the same as my Microsoft account, when in reality there's no reason I shouldn't be able to remove this. (Heck, it wasn't there 10 minutes ago) Any ideas? If this is a real bug, any way to submit it to Microsoft?

While this tutorial image showed "Delete" and "Cancel" buttons at the bottom, my onscreen image did not show them. This means, of course, that I was unable to click and delete the account. I thought maybe I could downsize the image in order to show these buttons, but I couldn't figure out how to do that. Am I doing something wrong? There must be a way to bring these buttons onscreen.

But I am unable to find Add Account when I click on settings. The Add Account option seems to be located in Settings
-> Change PC Settings -> Add Account. But this creates another user on the system and has nothing to do with the Windows Mail.
Please note my Gmail is protected via 2-step verification. Is it possible to add this type of an account into Windows Mail ? Also how do I add it ? Microsoft seems to force me to use their Microsoft account for email and etc. But I want to use my own gmail account.
Thanks.

Windows e-mail asked for my user name and password. This was the first time I remember being asked for this information since I set up the account more than a year ago. I accidentally entered my husband's information. I'm able to send and receive e-mails from my account. My husband can still send outgoing messages from his account; however all his incoming messages are now arriving in my in box rather than his. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

Try to go to accounts. Top of page
Look for the account information, password etc. Then put the correct information.

If that does not work, report back.

Originally when I called Metrocast to set up our new email accounts in my new computer, both accounts were set up under my log in. When we realized what had happend, we created the second user log in for my husband and i deleted his email from my log in. Unfortunately, this is not working now. It asks for my user name and password to access that email account but then no email is coming to his email address.

What Have I Done wrong?

A:Windows Mail account issue

Since my first post, i have followed instructions i found through Vista forum to delete Windows Mail and started over.

I created my email under my log in. Created my husbands email under his log in. That did not work either. Still asks for MY USER NAME AND PASSWORD to access HIS email.

SO... I went back to my log in and added his email back into my account and followed instructions for RULES. Went back to his account and email and sent an email. That worked, But when I tried to send an email to him (from my account) he does not receive email.

HELP!!!

Hello-
I have a Windows Live Mail account that I use to access my Comcast email. It has and still is working fine. I added a new email address/account to the Live Mail and when I hit send/receive a small box pops up requesting my username and password. When it comes up, the fields are already populated, so I just click ok. After a few seconds it comes up again asking me the same thing. I have tried deleting what was in there and typing it myself, but that does not seem to work either. Before I created this new email account, this box never popped up. I have made sure that all the information was exactly the same in the new account as the first email account, POP server, etc. Please help. It is driving me bananas.

A:Windows Live Mail new account

Hi bevygram and welcome to Seven Forums. OK. When you added this new email did you put a check mark in "Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing" in Windows LiveMail? Check this by clicking on Accounts right at the top of the page then select the new account and click on Properties. It will be at the bottom of the first page. Don't forget to click Apply. Let us know how it works out.

You could if you were set up with a corporate E-ddress, if not, you might as well use some other client.
