Configuring Windows Mail

Updated Thursday, October 22, 2020


In this short guide, we make a few assumptions:

Add Mail Account

Launch the Mail application on your computer.

Windows Mail may immediately pop up the new account wizard if there are no existing accounts configured. Otherwise, you will have to start the wizard yourself.

From the side menu, select Accounts and followed by Add account option.

Mail accounts

You will be prompted for an account type now.

Mail accounts

Choose Other account POP/IMAP which will ask for your email address and password. Please enter your full mailbox email address and enter its password.

In the screenshots provided here we used our demo account but you should obviously enter your own mailbox information.

Mail accounts

Windows Mail will attempt to detect server settings correctly but if that worked, you would have not been reading this. Windows Mail will most likely bring up the server settings screen.

Mail accounts

Please make sure the server settings are as given here.

Outlook new account wizard

The wizard is now complete and you can start using your email.
