A beginners guide to setting up Windows Mail

This tutorial will guide you through setting up Windows Mail, which is very old and no longer supported by Microsoft. It’s still completely accurate, but it’s not the same as the Mail app included with Windows 10.

  1. The setup wizard will launch on its own the first time you open Windows Mail. On the first screen, enter your name as you wish it to appear on your outgoing email messages. Click Next to continue.

  5. At this step you’ll want to check with your ISP for your email server settings. If you have cable or DSL in North America, you can refer to this list of email settings for many of the major broadband ISPs (Comcast, Cox, Rogers, Shaw, Verizon, Earthlink, Time Warner etc). When you have the correct info for your ISP, enter it in the spaces provided. Click Next to continue.

  7. Enter your email user name and password, place a check in the box labeled Remember Password if you don’t want to enter your password each time you check your email, and then click Next.
