Bigpond email with Windows Live

Answered

HI

 

Today I opened an additional email account, my primary account is ??????@bigpond.net.au and the new account is ?????@bigpond.com which states "Bigpond email with windows Live". I have tried for many hours to setup this account not only in Outlook 2010 but also Windows live. (Note it was part of the Windows 2012 Essentials package).

 

I am able to log onto the Bigpond website and view all the introdcutory email already received in that account, but I cannot receive them in either Outlook or Windows Live. (Yet I can still receive emails from ??????@bigpond.net.au even if it appears in both Outlook and Windows Live)  I have tried all the settings for every possible setup with and without the (????@bigpond.net.au attached) but still could not view my emails. I have registered my details in Live.com I have signed up for a Microsoft Account and still nothing.

Help

Re: Bigpond email with Windows Live

no that doesn't work. Outlook.com won't accept my @bigpond.com email address as it is "a reserved domain". How do I make my email work on LiveMail I am at the end of my tether trying to make it work!!!!
