:huh: I need help with Windows Mail that is now on my new computer, with Vista Home Premium. I used to have XP, all I did was type a document in Word, click send and I went to my email account I was using. Now it seems I have to set up some type of Windows Mail account and somehow tie it in with my Yahoo e-mail account, which is the one I am currently using or I can't email from links, or from Vistas word processor (which looks like Word in XP but won't email a document). I am asked what type of email servers used for ingoing and outgoing mail, if I use POP3, IMAP, HTTP (which is not even supported)...an SMTP server name and other things I have absolutely never been asked for before or have a clue to what these things are. I went to Yahoo, they told me I should not have to know any of the servers information.

Can you please help me with this? I cannot respond to things like from Craigs List or send a document to anyone I have typed. I really am confused, have went to help, got more confused. So now I am here, confused.

Thank you for any help with this. I am just no computer expert, but really feel worse not being able to just figure this seemingly simple thing out. I wish I never was pushed into Vista, XP was problematic at times, but at least I could do what I needed to do.

Thanx so much...parrotplay
