  1. Difficulty changing to Windows Mail


    I'm trying to change from Windows Live Mail to Windows Mail . I've been asked to fill in details of my G. Mail account, but a sign keeps popping up saying my Gmail account settings are out of date. I've clicked on Fix My Account & changed my password, as I thought I might have been using an out of date one, but nothing makes any difference. It won't accept it & just keeps telling me my settings are out of date. Any help would be greatly appreciated !

    :)

    Multiple addresses for emails

    I had a lot of difficulty with Outlook and have been advised by iiNet to change to Window's 10 MAIL

    Can you advise how I can set up an Address Book for forwarding emails to multiple addressees.

  3. Windows live mail 2012 on windows 10

    I'm having various probs with windows live mail 2012. I understand that it is no longer being supported and that 'outlook' is now being encouraged instead. I'm not tech savvy and I always seem to have difficulties when I try to change systems, however.

    Is there a step-by-step explanation somewhere to guide me through the change to Outlook?

    Will I lose my current e-mail files by changing?

    Is there another system other than Outlook, possibly better or easier to change to, that you can recommend?

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Difficulty changing to Windows Mail

    Do you have two-step/factor authentication set up on your Gmail account? If so then you'll require an app specific password when setting up email.

  6. No I havn't & from reading other on line forums this message about the Google account settings being out of date sounds quite common.

    I'm just wondering if setting up a 2 step/factor authentication would make things worse ?
