Windows Live Mail comes standard with the Windows 7
operating system, and is replacing Outlook Express and
Windows Mail. (Windows Mail comes standard with the
Vista Operation System). Windows Live Mail is available
for free download from http://www.microsoft.com for all 3
current Microsoft operating systems (XP,Vista,7).
Please be aware that there is a webmail interface for
Windows Live Mail, which only works with a hotmail email
address, not your advertisnet email address. In order
to use the Windows Live Mail program, instead of its
webmail, you must select the Windows Live Mail program
from the START button, usually under PROGRAMS.
To use the webmail for your Advertisnet email account,
go http://www.advertisnet.com and click on WEBMAIL.
The first time Windows Live Mail(abbreviated as WLM
in these instructions) runs, it begins setting up for
your email account. The following are snapshots of the
This the first screen, substitute the userid you
specified when you created your account with us for
"your_userid" in the email address field. All accounts
in our system have the options of using the following
email suffixes after your userid, at any time,
(advertisnet.com, dam.net, lakeozark.net). Enter the
password for your advertisnet account in the password
box, dont worry that it hides the password. Enter
your name in the Display Name box.
This is the second screen.
Enter the incoming and
outgoing email server names. Check the box which
says 'my outgoing server requires authentication'.
It will pull the Login ID (userid) from the email
address you entered in screen 1, it should not
have a suffix in this box.
The 3rd screen is the finish button. After you click
finish, it will leave you in the main WLM screen,
and you can check your email with the SYNC button.
It is a good idea to test your settings by sending
yourself an email.
If you need to go back in and edit your settings,
you can right click the Advertisnet email header
right above the inbox, See this screen,
and go into properties.
These are the 5 screen snapshots of the setting
windows. The 5th window has the box checked
'leave a copy of mail on the server', and this
should be unchecked, as it can result in your
mailbox on the server filling up and email being
bounced back to the sender with an 'over quota'
