Windows 7: Windows Live Mail sign-in

Windows Live Mail sign-in

Is there a way to eliminate the "Sign in to Windows Live Mail" screen? I do not want to select the "Remember me" box.

Options>Connections>"Stop Signing In". But if you don't sign in, your contacts and the way they are organized into categories, won't be backed up at the contacts.live.com website. (You can still export your local contacts to back them up but it won't save the categories, just all the contacts in a long list.) You also won't be able to use Photo Email (i.e. using SkyDrive to avoid sending very large attached files).

When you're setting up Windows Live Mail and they ask for a password, do they want the password from your IP or do they just want a password you just make up? Thanks in advance.

They want the password for your Windows Live ID. Note that the login consists of an email address (like @hotmail.com or @msn.com) and the password for that address. They are used on Microsoft's websites (like msn.com or hotmail.com or live.com).

Thanks for the info. My e-mail address comes from Time Warner. The password from Time Warner worked. I don't know a password for my Windows Live. Would they prefer that password?

You need the email address and password for every email account set up with an email program; the purpose is to get your messages from your email server (Time Warner). The Windows Live ID and password is for "signing-in" to Windows Live to use the "Live" features I mentioned previously.
