Windows 7: windows live mail and windows live mail on w7

windows live mail and windows live mail on w7

Hi everyone,
Sorry in advance if this is already covered...

On a new notebook a few months back, I had to install Windows LIve Mail as a replacement for Outlook Express. During that process my mail and contacts for the accounts I use were imported and mail downloaded etc ----all good... All working fine... but...

Now, just recently I was away from home and wanted to log in to the Windows LIve Mail (that is part of the suite of Windows Live stuff like messenger and photo etc) to check my email..While I was trying this (never done it before) I realised that I had no Windows Live ID to sign in with , and had no way to find out how the 'original' Windows Live Mail ID (if there is one) works.

I downloaded the Windows Live Suite and it works ok with the brand new account ID had to sign up with, but can I link my 'old' Windows Live Mail to the 'new' ID? I don't need or want a hotmail or any other email accounts - they are all working fine... I just want to access my 'old' windows live email setup when I am not at home.

I hope I have made sense.

If I have understood properly, I think you can do this:

- Open Windows Live Mail in the computer where it is already configured properly.
- See the ID like in this image:

- Go to the other computer and use that account to log in.

If you don't know the password it will not be possible.
