Setting up Windows Live with a @blueyonder.co.uk email address

Just got a new computer with Windows 7 and was disappointed to find I cannot use Outlook Express.  How can I set up Windows Live with an email address ending in @blueyonder.co.uk?  I think Outlook Express used an Internet Connection Wizard.  Is this the case for Windows Live?  Sorry if this seems like a stupid question.

Re: Setting up Windows Live with a @blueyonder.co.uk email address

Windows Live Mail has its own setup process – there should be a link in the bottom-left of the WLM screen to get you started. As long as you know the settings you need to enter to configure your ex-Telewest account, it should all be quite straightforward.

 

A WLM setup guide should soon appear on the new Virgin Media help section.

 

Remember that you can also use Virgin Media Mail through the Email link in the top-right of any virginmedia.com page.
