Hello people,

Am trying to set up Windows live mail so that I can send/receive emails. Thus far I can check my emails but cannot send any.

The configuration I am using is:
Incoming POP3 server - smail.warwick.ac.uk
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) - smtp.virgin.net
Incoming mail port - 995 SSL ticked
Outgoing mail port - 25 no SSL

My ISP is Virgin Media and I've done a bit of google-ing on this and apparently i need to provide a password (outgoing mail server require authenication) but I don't have a username/ pass for my internet account!

Any help is much appreciated!

Will do later today, depending on the cost of the call. In the UK some helplines cost a fortune (to a student) to call!

Sadly not in the UK, they'll quite literally abuse you for calling any form of tech support - on there for more than an hour and you'll be needing the IMF to bail you out :-)
