How to setup BigPond.com email with Vista's Windows Mail

How do I set up a BigPond.com email account in Windows Mail (under Windows Vista)?

I tried both IMTP and POP settings (imtp-mail.bigpond.com + smtp-mail.bigpond.com & mail.bigpond.com), but both kept refusing to eaccept the name @ password that are acepted by BigPond's webmail.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi Linda,
Sorry to read your troubles.

Is this a new account?
When you login to webmail are you on the Outlook.com or BigPond server?

Still hopefully this like will provide the nessasary info for you.

Re: How to setup BigPond.com email with Vista's Windows Mail

Hello from Narre Warren South....I am using an old DELL 9200 Desktop running Vista. All is okay in this area.

 

I have an Bigpond.com account and I am trying to get the Windows Mail client to work.

 

I can send test emails but not receive...

 

What is the setup for a Bigpond.com account within Windows Mail please....anyone?

 

Which Box's need to be ticked?

 

What is the Port number for incoming as 995 must not be working?....

 

Cheers

Clint
