  1. Live mail will not connect to internet

    My wifes Computer down loaded and updated automatically yesterday and since then she has not been able to log in to her e-mails using live mail.

    The e-mail address and password are correct for both receiving and sending e-mails as I downloaded Thunderbird onto her computer and it works perfectly.

    Any idea how I can get live mail to work for her please

    Thanks in advance
