If you can’t send an email using Windows Live Mail, try using Windows Mail instead. First, make sure your email account is properly setup in Windows Mail or if you haven’t set it up yet or having trouble setting up a new email account in Windows Mail, here’s how to do it. Click Start, All Programs, and then click Windows Mail.

Click Tools then select Accounts. On the next screen, click Add. Select E-mail Account, click Next, and then follow the succeeding instructions. See image.

When you reach the part where you need to select the incoming and outgoing servers, you can choose between POP3 and IMAP for the incoming server. For the outgoing server, select SMTP because it is the only type that works with Windows Mail. Here are several of the incoming and outgoing server addresses of the most popular email services:

  • Yahoo! – pop.mail.yahoo.com [incoming mail server]; smtp.mail.yahoo.com [outgoing mail server]
  • AOL – imap.aol.com [incoming mail server]; smtp.aol.com [outgoing mail server]
  • Gmail – pop.gmail.com [incoming mail server]; smtp.gmail.com [outgoing mail server]
