Windows Mail setup 

Setting up your e‑mail is a bit like setting up a new computer: You do it only once. After you configure your e‑mail accounts in Windows Mail, you never have to hassle with it again—unless, of course, you open a new e‑mail account.

Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) servers. Texas I.S.P. uses this type of server, especially for personal e‑mail accounts. They hold incoming e‑mail messages until you check your e‑mail, at which point they're transferred to your computer. Messages are typically deleted from the server when you check your e‑mail.

Incoming mail server: mail.texasisp.com

Outgoing mail server: mail.texasisp.com

    After you click Add on the Internet Accounts screen, Windows Mail will ask what type of account you want to add
  4. Click E‑mail Account, click Next, and then follow the instructions.

After you are done entering all the information for one e‑mail account, repeat the process for each e‑mail account you want to set up.

Note

  • During setup, you'll be asked to pick a display name. You might want to enter your actual name here rather than your e‑mail address, since this is the name that recipients will see when you send them an e‑mail message.
