With Microsoft phasing out Windows Live Mail, to access your email you will need to use either an Internet browser via outlook.com or configure your Microsoft Outlook program.
To setup your email in Outlook you will need to use the Exchange ActiveSync/Outlook.com online protocol and also know the details that you will need to complete.
First of all you need to open Outlook and it will ask you to setup an email account. So just click on the “New” button to start the process:
When the box pops up, select the radio button for “Manual setup or addittional server types” and click the “Next” button:
Then select the “Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync compatible server” radio button and click “Next”:
You then need to fill out all the information required as per below:
Your Name: The name you want to use on your email account
Email Address: Your email address you want to setup
Mail Server: eas.outlook.com
Username: This is your email address
Password: This is the password you use to login to your email
It should then look something like the below image, you can then go ahead and click the “Next” button.
This should then have your email all setup and you can start to send and receive email from your Outlook client.
