Now, you will need to specify the Incoming Server type as IMAP, with a Server address of sslmail.execulink.com. The corresponding Port number should automatically change to 993 once you place a check mark beside the option to Require a secure connection (SSL). Leave the Authentication option as Clear text, with a Logon user name set as your Execulink provided email address.

The Outgoing server address should also be set as sslmail.execulink.com, with a corresponding Port number of 465. Additionally, place a check mark next to both the option to Require a secure connection (SSL) as well as Requires authentication.

Your email account should immediately attempt to synchronize folders and check for messages.

If this is a new email address, you may not have mail waiting. A good way to test the account setup is to send a test message to yourself to verify the incoming and outgoing settings are functional.

This test email should appear in your inbox as Windows Live Mail checks for new messages. You can click on Send/Receive to expedite the process.
