Hi Scott,

 

You may have better luck using pop-mail.outlook.com as your incoming mail server, while this supports downloading messages if you want to sync your emails with your Mac and all your other devices including the web portal you might want to try imap-mail.outlook.com

 

Steps and other information about setting up your BigPond email provided by Windows Live on your Mac can be found in this CrowdSupport article: http://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Bigpond-Email-Inc-Windows-Live/Configure-Mac-Mail-for-Windows/...

 

If you are still having issues you might still have regular BigPond email which was not powered by Windows Live but only you and Telstra actualy know your personal circumstance. Anyway I hope this helps and if not let me know so I can provide other suggestions.
