Hi Peter

 

You're aware that Windows Live Mail is no longer supported and is replaced by the Mail app within Windows 8?

 

You can still use WLM if you wish.  You just manually Configure server settings.  Below are settings for talktalk.net email.  Other talktalk supported email services are here.

 

Incoming server set to: IMAP

Incoming server address: mail.talktalk.net

Port: 993

Requires a secure connection (SSL): Tick

Authenticate using: clear text

Logon user name: your full talktalk.net email address

Outgoing server address: smtp.talktalk.net

Port: 587

Requires a secure connection (SSL): Tick

Requires Authentication: Tick

Thank you Gondola.

I didn't realise that I would have to set up a new account to change from pop3 to imap. However, from the information supplied, I was able to set up the new imap account and import messages from the pop3 account. Thank you very much.

Incidentally, I realise that Windows Livemail has been superceded, but I like to be able to store my emails in my folders over which I have control, back them up and share with my other widows systems.
