Make new e-mail account in Windows® 7
For sending and receiving e-mails, you should have a email program like Microsoft Outlook installed on your computer. If you do not have an e-mail programÂ installed on your Windows 7 computer, then you don't have to worry.
Let us explain, how? You can download and use Windows Live Mail as your e-mail program. Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live Essential suite which not only allows you to start sending and receiving e-mail, but along with it, it also supports RSS feeds and newsgroups. It consists of a Calendar module, which allows you to make and save your schedule of all the upcoming events and also a Contacts module, which allows you to store your e-mail contacts.
So, after downloading the Windows Live Mail, the first time you launch the program in the following order. Click on Start, then in the All Programs click on Windows Live and then on Windows Live Mail. The following steps are available for setting up a new e-mail account within Windows Live Mail.
Once Windows Live Mail is open, click on the Add E-mail Account link in the Navigation pane. Then Windows Live Mail opens the Add an E-mail Account dialog box. In this dialog box, enter your e-mail address in the text box provided. Then, enter your password in the Password text box.

If your incoming e-mail server does not use the POP3 protocol, click on the IMAP on the My Incoming Mail Server is a POP3 Server drop-down list box. POP3 that is Post Office Protocol version 3 or IMAP that is Internet Message Access Protocol version 4 are the two protocols that are used by the internet service provider mail server that sends your e-mail to the Windows Mail program.
