Chapter 16: Using Windows Mail, Calendars, and Contacts
As discussed in Chapter 6, the Windows Search service automatically
indexes email folders used with Office Outlook and Windows Mail.
This means you also can use this technique with Office Outlook.
The Windows Mail team has also devised a much easier way for you to back up your
email. The previous Outlook Express clients did not make it very easy to back up
and restore your email repository. Now that email storage is file-based, however,
backing up and restoring your email is easy. You really need to back up only one
folder, and that’s the AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail folder.
Setting Up Windows Mail and Configuring Email Accounts
When you first start using Windows Mail, the Internet Accounts Wizard will guide
you through the process of configuring your email account. Using this wizard, you
can set up your default email account by completing the following steps:
1. On the Your Name page, shown in Figure 16-2, enter the display name for the
email account and then click Next. The display name is the name that will
appear in the From field when you send email to other people.
2. On the Internet E-Mail Address page, shown in Figure 16-3, type the email
address for the account you are configuring. To successfully send and receive
email, you must use the email address the email server expects—either the email
address you’ve been assigned or the one you selected to use when initially set-
ting up your email account.

3. On the “Set up e-mail servers” page, shown in Figure 16-4, select the incoming
email server type as either POP3 or IMAP4. POP3 and IMAP4 are the only email
protocols that you can use to receive Internet mail. Windows Mail doesn’t sup-
port HTTP or other types of email protocols.
4. In the “Incoming e-mail (POP3 or IMAP) server” text box, type the fully quali-
fied domain name of the incoming email server, such as mail.microsoft.com. The
incoming email server is the POP3 or IMAP4 server from which you receive
email.
5. In the “Outgoing e-mail server (SMTP) name” text box, type the fully qualified
domain name of the outgoing email server, such as smtp.microsoft.com. The out-
going email server is the SMTP server to which you submit email that you want
to send to other people. Just about every email server in the world uses SMTP
for submitting messages.
6. Most SMTP servers require users to be authenticated before they will accept and
route email for delivery. If your outgoing email server requires a username and
password to send email, select the “Outgoing server requires authentication”
checkbox. Click Next.
7. On the “Internet mail logon” page, type your email username and password, and
then click Next. Typically, but not always, your email username is the name por-
tion of your email address. For example, if your email address is
Williams@microsoft.com, your email username typically would be Williams. If
you’ve specified that your email server requires authentication, this account
information is used whenever you send and receive email. Otherwise, the
account information is used only when you receive email.
8. Click Finish to complete the account setup process.
