Making Windows Mail Work With Wireless Internet

Windows Mail is an email and newsgroup program and is provided with the Windows Vista operating system. This program takes the place of the old Microsoft Outlook. Both Microsoft Outlook and Windows Mail are similar in their account and connection setup process. The Windows support number tips shared below will help you to use the Windows mail program while working with a wireless connection.


  • Turn on your PC and open the Windows Mail program. You can do this by either clicking on the desktop icon of the program or by clicking on the Windows icon button that is located on the bottom left hand corner of the desktop screen and then selecting Windows Mail. If you do not have a setup account in the Windows Mail program, you have the option to create one by clicking on the Tools menu and then selecting Accounts. 
  • Click on the Tools tab, which is located on the top menu bar of the Windows Mail program. Scroll down to find the Accounts option. Select the account that you would like to work with and then select Properties.
  • Select the Advanced tab and you will be taken to a screen that needs you to input the server port numbers for the incoming and outgoing mail. If you have this data, enter it in the corresponding blank spaces. You need not worry if you do not have these numbers. You can get them by contacting the wireless network department of the Internet Service Provider. Make sure to uncheck the box next to This server requires a secure connection, after inputting the details. Click on the Apply button to save the changes.
  • As the last step, click on the Connections tab and ensure that no other connection options like Dial-Up and Local Area Connection are selected. The Windows Mail program may not work properly if an incorrect connection is selected when you are connected to the Internet wirelessly. After doing these steps, click on Apply and then on OK to close the window. To check if you have successfully configured the Windows Mail program, you can send an email to your own account. If everything is configured correctly, you will receive the mail.

These are the steps to configure Windows Mail to work with a Wireless Internet connection. If you have further doubts, you can contact our Windows support number for further help.
