Windows Live Mail

I set up my mail and it works really nice and I got all my email but I miss type the outgoing servers name by putting in SMPT instead of SMTP and after 30 minutes of looking so I can correct the spelling I figure I better post to get help. I feel kind of stupid but that what forums are for.

ok, from reading your post i think you need to change your account settings.

if you haven't already got the menu bar showing, click the button shown in the bottom picture below, and chose 'show menu bar'.

now, on the menu bar, click 'tools' >> accounts >> select account on right-hand-side >> click properties >> servers >> correct your error

hope this helps!

I didn't have my menu bar up. Now I really feel stupid.
Another Question: I tried to put my contacts in which were about 30 of them C:\users\Richard\contacts but when I tried to bring up the email there were no email attach to them. I can't import them because I am using removable Hard Drives so will I just have to manually put them in one at a time?
