My old CPU Hard drive failed so I bought a new CPU. A Toshiba SateliteC55 with Windows 8.


Ok I am trying to set up my emails is Windows live Mail client. I had another CPU with Win 7 so I had my emails set up before on it. Thing is now charter won't help me with my problem and neither will MS.


They sent me the link for setting it up on WLM. Here is the link http://www.myaccount.charter.com/customers/Support.aspx?SupportArticleID=2656 which I did. I have 3 different emails with charter. I set up the first one and followed the instructions and set it up as IMAP. But in WLM it recognize it as POP3 and won't let me change it. So I can download all 9000 emails that were on the server (don't know why they were there) but it won't let me send out an email from WLM. I change it to a POP instead of IMAP and it let me send out an email.


Also when In tried to set up the second email IMAP it tells me it can't find the IMAP server even though it will DL emails from the first email set up as Imap.


It is very confusing and Charter is a worthless hump of information. I guess what I want to ask is there a link for a step by step setup for charter emails to windows live mail? I also will be setting this up on my phone and Ipad..


IS there another client I could use instead of this that is easier to use. I would rather just use that.


Thanks for the help. If this is confusing please point it out because I am so frustrated at charter I may not be making sense.
