Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I don't know what my Hot Mail pasword is or if I have one.
Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
It is your Windows Live email password. Windows Live is just the new version of Hotmail they are the same.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Mike,

 

I can't make the set-up work.

I'm using Windows Live Mail. My email provider is register.com and I have a pop 3 set-up.

Don't know if this makes any difference!

Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
If your email provider is register.com then you are not using Windows Live mail. Can you explain?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Register.com email is my internet email and Window 7, Windows Live Mail is my PC email which automatically receives my mail from the register server when I open mail on my PC.
Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.
So your email is forwarded from register.com to your Live account? That should not make any difference this should work, not sure why it is not, what is the error or problem?:

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
