If you have installed the Windows Live Mail email client in your PC, you can set it up with your email details using IMAP protocol. You need:

  • Your name (as it appears in outgoing messages)
  • Your email address
  • Your provider's IMAP server address
  • Your own ISP's SMTP server address
  • Your Username (for incoming mail)
  • Your Password (for incoming mail)

It is no more complicated than setting up a POP3 account.
