adding another email to existing windows live mail account

Q: adding another email to existing windows live mail account

My existing hotmail email account just switched to outlook express. Since then - I've switched to "windows live mail" and my 2 existing existing email addresses have been sucessfully transferred over to "live mail" and both work.
But now trying to ADD more email addresses in my"live mail account" and all attempts have failed.
Tryed to manually config server settings - and that failed. Commom advice is to "contact your email provider" for server settings...... Well who is provider? hotmail?? outlook express?? windowss live mail?? What gives?? Anyone know where iam going wrong?

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!

I held out and downloaded Windows 10 on the last day it was going to be free. I?ve been having some email issues ever since. Some have been solved; one has been a toothache.

Although Microsoft wants to wean people off of Windows Live Mail in favor of the built in mail interface in Windows 10, I want to keep using WLM.

I need two email accounts set up on WLM. One I have set, a IMAP account (a Time Warner Roadrunner account) which is working properly and the other an outlook.com email account which isn?t. (All the settings on the two accounts are IDENTICAL with the exception of the server names)

The OUTLOOK account is also set a IMAP and the setting are correct as I can send and receive emails?both properly going through the proper server and being able to be read in my hand held device and on the outlook.com web site.

The problem is I can?t get folders to populate in WLM on that account, so I can?t see (read) incoming mail from there, nor do I have a SENT folder to verify that my emai ?went.?

The step which I can not get to happen in to ?DOWNLOAD FOLDERS?, i.e. the ?Inbox?, ?Drafts?, ?Sent Items?, ?Junk E-mail?, and ?Deleted Items? folders.

There is a link to click to download those folders (?Windows Live Mail needs to download the folders before you can read the messages in this account. To download the folders, click DOWNLOAD link?)but it churns and churns and churns then finally times out with an error message that reads:

Hello

I am new here and just purchased a laptop with Windows 7 on it and Windows Live Mail already installed.
My previous laptop (still up and running, but mainly just to check emails now) had Outlook Express and was set up many years ago when it was new.
Do I need to completely close down or delete the Outlook Express before I open up a new account in Windows Live Mail with the same email address?
I've tried opening up and putting server details, username/password into Windows Live Mail - and it's accepted it.
However when I go to send/receive mail - it keeps asking me to log in and give my password, and that it's incorrect - when I know it is actually correct?

Am I doing something wrong here? Or how can I open up my emails on my new laptop via Windows Live Mail?

I have Microsoft Security Essentials running as my antivirus protection.

I am hopeful I am doing something very silly and someone might be able to help me with this, as I'm not very computer minded - simple instructions please if anyone has suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

Since you're using Windows 7 for WLM and OE for XP they can't simultaneously be on the same PC. However both programs can be set up on their respective PCs at the same time; just keep in mind that if you download your mail on one PC you won't see it on the other afterwards unless you choose the option to "keep mail on server".

If OE is working, look carefully at every tab of Account Properties and set up WLM the same way. WLM is the replacement for OE for Windows 7 and will work if set up the same.

Hello!
My mum has got a new computer, and it has Vista on it and therefore has Windows Live Mail. She is used to outlook express and I just check my emails from a website rather than a programme like this, so i am not accustom to them. Live Mail will not let her sign in to her account. It says the email or password is incorrect. Both are correct as they will work on the website. I have checked all the property setting and they are correct and even tried setting the incoming settings to private as suggested on the website. I have now noticed it will send emails if i go to start then hover over windows live mail, then select send new message. This will send a message from her email.

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

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.

Hi everyone.

I recently set up a wireless network at home between 2 rooms. Works very well,and my friend can hook onto the Internet with ease. My ISP allows 3 additional email users, and so we tried to give him e-mail facilities. Oh what a headache!

I have a million questions, but I'm prepared to cut them down <grin> What we did was go to the message centre of my ISP. We gave him a user name and a password etc, and rebooted. All the servers are correct: to receive we have POP3.<ISP>.co.za and to send mail we have SMTP.<ISP>.co.za

He can now compose & send e-mails but cannot receive them. Why? Is there any need for either him or the PC to know *my* user name and or passwrd? How do we tweak his PC to be able to receive emails? I'm sure there's some sort of liaison between the passwords and the user names.on both his side and mine.

The signal strength is graded as excellent. I'm using a router put out by Billion:- the ADSL2+ VoIP/Wi-Fi Router 7401VGP. Platform is XP home on both PCs. We've tried using Netscape 7.2 and Outlook express, It just won't receive, with a message that reads:- "sending of password did not succeed. Mail server POP3.<ISP>.co.za responded: authentication failed.

My settings on the "main" computer are identical, except, of course, I have my own user name and password.

Can anyone point me in the right idrection? HELP!

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.

I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty much always empty as any mail I want to keep gets put into a storage folder.

When I do a search inside the program, all it's searching are the email subjects, not the actual contents of the messages.

Any idea how to fix this? I know this was an issue in the 64 bit version of Windows 7, as seen here.....

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/969165

.....but I'd have thought this would have been fixed by now! Is that fix still valid for Windows 10, or is there another solution? I really don't want to have to switch to another email client if I can help it.

A:Windows Live Mail Account Pop Up

Hi woodsman2, welcome to 7F!

Is this the pop-up?

I don't believe you can delete it. It has to be there to sign-in.

Try inputting your user name and password, Make sure you have the proper email address and password spelling, when complete, click on the Remember me box if it doesn't automatically do it for you.

Be careful when signing-in. there is a forget me link right above the sign-in button, you may have inadvertently clicked that to start this problem you're having. I'm hoping that if you sign-in it will reset the "Forget Me" action.


Can you describe the "list icon" a little better, maybe point it out on this?

If you click on the attachment it may open in a new tab, if you click on it there it might get larger and better to see. This depends on the browser you're using.

If it doesn't go to a new tab or get larger, study it, when done click on the browser back button to the left of the www. address bar to return to your thread.

A:How would i Sync a Windows Live Mail account on 3 PCs?

The only free way I know of that you can do this with Windows Live Mail is to maintain a common Hotmail account or a Gmail account configured to use the imap protocols (intructions for setup included in the Gmail account settings). The way both work is that the account is kept current on the web and then that is shared and syncronized with each copy of Windows Live Mail configured to use that one web account.

This leads me to think i have been hacked. So i clikcked on the little radio button saying i think my account has been hacked or words to those effect and all it says is create a strong password and download Microsoft security essentials is there anyway i can get rid off the account altogether without me losing my windows live ID.
Thank you in advance

A:I think someone has hacked my Windows Live E-Mail account

Unfortunately, I don't think you can use the same ID. Every account has a different ID/password combination, and if you try to open a new Windows Live account, you will just get an error message saying that ID is already in use. I think the only thing you can do is to take all of the steps you can to clean up your email account.

Here's some help for you:

First, I suggest you run one or two good malware scans (i.e. Malwarebytes or MSE or TrendMicro) to get rid of any malware in your email account (or anywhere on your system).

Then, follow the steps below, and hopefully there's help for you there.

First line of defense is to change your password and all "secret questions" and "answers."

Then, if hackers have locked you out of your email, go on-line and sign up for the free service in which you give your email provider (i.e. Windows Live/Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) your cell phone number and they text you a secret code to allow you to get back into your email.

Next, when you do get back into your email, always "log out" of your email when you exit, rather than just hitting the exit X icon. Hitting the exit X doesn't end your email session, only 'logging out' actually shuts it down. If you just press exit, that leaves it available to be hacked because technically, it's still open, even after you've gone.

If nothing above has helped the problem, take a look at these tutorials to see if there is any help there for you:

Every time I attempt to sign in to my live account I get a message telling my the account has been blocked. At this point I can't sign in to change any of the information, including password, personal info, etc.

How do I regain access to this blocked account? I have had this account for quite some time and I would like to regain access. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Add Remove Programs. Look for Windows Live Mail. Uninstall.

If this is one of the "few things" you have already tried, let us know.
Also, if for some reason you can't uninstall it, it would be helpful to know what you HAVE tried.

Hi,

I am not a computer tech guy. So, patience required by those who are. Thanks in advance.

I have two accounts set up in Windows Live Mail. The operating system is Windows 7 Professional. Everything has run very smoothly for the last three years or so. Today I tidying out the inbox for one of those accounts; deleting, transferring to folders both within Live Mail and elsewhere in the computer. On checking new email I am presented with a small pop-up box which, at a glance, I thought was the request by an e-mailer for me to acknowledge receipt of the email. I trust the email and click "Yes" I then realise that the box has changed, showing a progress bar with a green wave flowing left to right with bar steadily filling up. I then realise that it is about to delete one of my email account. With the progress bar half full I click on the "cancel" button. The box disappears but then so does my account! I scan the computer for viruses but find nothing. I use "System restore" but nothing comes back. I have looked on the internet and have found advice and instruction for people that have had the same problem but even the instructions for Windows 7 do not marry up with my system i.e. navigating to folders. I feel that there must be a difference between Windows 7 and Windows 7 Professional.

A:How can I retrieve a deleted Windows Live Mail Account

I don't know how you have your View set up but look in the lower left corner of the Folder pane for a group called Storage Folders and expand it (Click on the arrowhead). Click on Deleted Items and see if the account is there. Below is a sample of what to look for.

New account set up on Windows live mail is now not sending emails. I am receiving them fine. I've changed emails recently due to spam, so I'm now using the paid version of Microsoft office 365. The email address I now have I've added it to my windows live mail account. I've checked all the settings, have done google searches and watched videos but I cannot find the solution and I'm stumped.
Any or all suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

After setting up my Gmail account, I import the folders and all of the sudden I get a message saying "The server has rejected your login. Please verify that your user name and password are correct." I typed in the right username and password and clicked okay and repeats the message again. I know that for Gmail that you have to have IMAP enabled in which I have. I've looked up how to's, but they seem to be for different versions of Gmail and/or Live Mail.

Anyone knows how?

I am having trouble with YahooPops and Yahoo! Mail account. I download and install the software and use my LATEST version of Windows Live Mail. After that I keep getting error messages. I use pop3, smtp 127.0.0.1 and my username as eg. [email protected] I enter the full address, even the @yahoo part too. It asks to check authenticate option in the settings so I did. I even tried changing my zone to Asia because I heard some people on the message board there talking about it. That didn't work. I get my gmail to work but why does Yahoo! have to be so complex?

if you CLOSE your account it stays dormant for 270 days!!!! and you can log back in at anytime during then

my email has been used to spam twice, so ive created a new one, I want to delete the old one but it seems to be impossible to do, some people say just dont sign in for 30 days and accounts deleted, I dont believe that is the case anymore with WLM as they would not keep it dormant for 270 days if you actually wanted to close an account...seems to be wrong to me.

does anyone know if this is possible?

Hi there wonderful Tech guys!

I have been experiencing a problem with my Windows Live Hotmail account. Basically when I log in, the log in page is normal, but the script which should show my inbox, sent msgs etc is is all in the wrong place, or not there at all, it moves around the page and all the image icons are condensed into the top left of the screen.

When I scroll my mouse over the headings (inbox, sent, deleted mails etc, which are all listed in a line down the left of the page) they disappear and reappear seemingly at random. I can access my emails with a well timed mouse click but I am very concerned about this problem as I am self employed and have a lot of important emails stored in this account.

I thought I should also add that yesterday I received an email from a known contact which would not open. There was an error message saying something like 'windows cannot complete this command at present' - sorry I don't have the exact message but everything was fine until I opened the account today. It didn't have a message saying 'this email looks suspicious' with it. The person who had sent that e-mail resent it and it opened fine. Do you think I could have received a virus through that email?

I have tried to contact Windows live about this but they do not have a contact phone number for this kind of query and there help page does not have the answer either.

Many Thanks for your help

You are using a browser (not an email client) to access Hotmail, right? What browser? Try a different one to see if there is a difference.

4GB DDR2

AVG Free 64-bit
Windows Live Mail

I installed the Windows 7 trial OS.
I installed Windows Live Mail.

I setup all of my email accounts (gmail, Hotmail, Live and my ISP Parolink email).

All work great except the email from my internet service provider, which is my main email.

When I hit Sync they all Send/Receive ok until it reaches my Parolink account. Then it displays "Checking for new messages on 'Parolink (johnnieq)'... Downloading message 1"

And it remains there counting up and in about thirty seconds it shows "Downloading message 30128" and keeps on counting up at a blazing speed, but not one message is ever received.

The settings are correct, copied and pasted from my XP drive. I can access my email ok via a web browser. I have no viruses. (new OS installtion) I contacted my ISP and they see nothing wrong at their end.

Anyone have any ideas on what could cause this?
 

A:Solved: One account not working in Windows Live Mail?

I installed Mozilla Thunderbird 3.0 Beta 3 and tried the problem account in it. When I tried Send/Recieve an error message appeared saying it could not create a folder? The path it displayed in the error message had "AVG" in it. So I opened AVG and disabled all the email options & retried Thunderbird. It worked. I tried Windows Live Mail & it worked.

AVG was giving me an warning message that I was not protected so in the Email Scanner Settings I re-enabled the "Scan outgoing messages" & "Display notification window when e-mail is being scanned" options. I left the "Scan incoming messages" box unchecked and the AVG security warning left & my email still worked.

Problem solved.

I recently set up an account with my school's email system. When I try to log in, it lets me log in to the general area, and then when i try to access my inbox, i'm directed to sign into windows live. I hate windows live, I want it to die in a fire, I don't have an account with windows live, and so I can't access my school email. I have uninstalled everything windows live-related, and have double checked that I didn't tell my school email account to open in a pop server (since you need to be able to access the email account to set it up, i'm sure I haven't done that). I changed my defaults in firefox to open emails with gmail, but it still goes to windows live. Any ideas?
 

A:email account defaults to windows live sign in

Contacting your school IT section to access your mail would be the go, as they can only give you access if you are allowed to have access remotely, then they will set it up for you, IF you have permissions to do so.

If you are talking about a computer at the school that is assigned to you, then you still need to contact them, to sort this.

I agree with you about Windows Live Mail though but that is just my personal opinion.

Recently have not been able to receive emails-some do come over but not about 90%.  I have called and talked to my regular emailers so I know the first statement is true.  I have called my internet provider several times in the last 3 days but they cannot find anything wrong other than telling me it probably is my email provider (Windows Live Mail).  I am now getting a pop-up that states I must be on line and/or that I am working off line and do I want to go on line?  The program does not allow me to answer as when I click on yes or no, the pop up keeps returning..
I have also talked with their Security section thinking that maybe they flagged my account for some reason as one of internet provider persons stated they may have done.  I have been assured that that was not done.
Oh yes-I do check Web Mail and one that was sent to me today is in Web Mail.  That was a test from my Internet Provider-it just will not come over to my Live Mail!
I have NO problems sending emails-ONLY receiving them!
Is there an upgrade or driver that I need?  Maybe I need to switch email accounts to GMail or HotMail?
Thank you to anyone who responds.  I am very frustrated!

A:Email from Windows Live Mail

I don't know anything about Live Mail and how it works...but I would just uninstall/reinstall it.  There may be damaged files and the uninstall/reinstall would eliminate that suspicion.
 
I believe that they also have a forum...if it happens to you, chances are it's happened to someone else and come up before.
