How do I set up my Windstream email in Windows Live Mail?

Windows Live Mail is part of the Windows Essentials 2012 suite. Per Microsoft, the Windows Essentials 2012 suite reached end of support on January 10, 2017. Microsoft suggests you use Windows Mail instead.

If you still have Windows Live Mail, here are the setup steps:

  1. Click File, Options, and then Email Accounts.
  2. Click Add. Highlight Email Account. Click Next.
  3. Fill in the entire Email Address, Password, and the Display Name. Click Next.

Note: The "Manually configure server settings for e-mail account" checkbox is not checked by default, thus Windows Live Mail will attempt to configure your email account automatically. If it does not, you can manually set it up using the server and port information is available in the server settings section of this site.
