Re: Set up email with Windows 7 live mail

Not sure exactly what you are asking for here.


If you are asking how to have Windows Mail remove mail from Verizon's server, there should be a chckbox for leaving a copy on the server that you can uncheck.


If you are asking how to set up your Verizon account in Windows Mail:

For the sake of example, we are going to pretend that we are setting up fictional account "" and the password for logging into that account in webmail is "fakepassword" - Again, this is a fictitious account for the sake of an example.

The settings for using Verizon's servers would be:
Incoming Server:
Server Requires Authentication: Yes
Username: fakeacct
Password: fakepassword
Requires a Secure Connection (SSL): No
Port: 110

Outgoing Server:
Server Requires Authentication: Yes (You can set it to use the same settings as incoming, or manually enter the username and password.)
Requires a Secure Connection (SSL): No
Port: 25 (although 587 also works.)

These settings should work unless you have a Verizon/Yahoo account, in which case the server names are: -and-


Hope this helps. If these weren't the answers you were looking for, can you please rephrase the question?
