Windows 7: Really need help with windows live mail

Check your port 995, mine is 110. Yours may not be wrong, but double check. Look for specific instructions concerning the port that should be used.

My account does not show that a secure connection is required for incoming. Try removing the check.

If this does not work, did this email account came with the ISP or it is an email account that you found on the web. For example Yahoo, gmail or others?

Did these settings work before you switched to Windows 7?

Finally, don't get discouraged. We will both get the feeling of satisfaction when we find out the answer to this problem.

I thought the server was just pop.ntlworld.com (without the 3)? Not sure how you got it working without changing that.
