Trying to set up WLM acount

Am trying to set up a WLM account for a friend's new laptop and it just isn't working.

Have this trouble every single time with this app and am getting pretty tired of it. I would set up a Gmail account only it would confuse her not mention to have to let everyone know of the new address.

Can anyone please help before I go potty(er).

Get your friend to open a Hotmail dot com account, use it to sign in to WLM. Next, enable POP on the original account, then add it to WLM. Store all contacts in the Hotmail account, (makes life easier adding addresses & increases security) then delete it.

Thanks Roderunner will do WLM has always been a thorn in my side when setting up though I do like the interface now.

Which brings me to how come the nice layout with allthe tabs and stuff has disappeared now? There is no way of opening the Options as it is not there and so you can't add blocked senders etc like I can?

That's what you get in WLM 2011. My version is more user friendly with better features.

I read that but thought you might want to know. Looks like you are using the same version as I am. Do you ever have trouble with the Calendar hanging on updating? I do and when it happens, it fails to retrieve the mail. I can stop the updating and hit the Sync button and it will work again for about 24 hours and do it again. This only started happening within the last month for some reason.

I only use Google's Calendar, it's far superior.
