Windows 7 operating system comes with Windows Live Mail, which can be set up to check your webmail account.

If you have not set up an email account yet, please read our article on setting up an email account in cPanel.

  1. Open Windows Live Mail on your local computer.
  2. windows_live_1If Windows Live mail was never setup on your computer then you will see the Accept the agreement by clicking “Accept”.
  3. windows_live_2Now, fill in your information for the email address, Password, and make sure to check manually configure server settings. Then click OK.
  4. live_mail_9Fill in the server settings.
    Below are the non SSL settings. For the SSL settings, please see our Getting started guide for email.

    Server Address: type in your domain name

    POP Port: 110 (Non SSL)

    Authenticate using: Select “Clear Text

    Login user name: Use your FULL email address

You’re finished setting up Windows Live Mail. You can now use it to check your email, send emails, and much more. You may want to send a test message from Windows Live Mail to be sure the set up was complete.
