I cannot connect to windows live mail after I changed the pop and the smpt and ports. Help!
I did this because i could not send messages! Mt gmail is connected to windows live and I think the settings have to be different. I cannot explain myself well because I can't even connect to windows live mail even though I am connected to the internet!

Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
