Live@Edu and Thunderbird 12 May, 2009Posted by aronzak in Uncategorized.
Having a VM install of Windows 7, I thought it would be a good idea to install “Windows Live Essentials” mail, which is essentially a new name for Outlook. Dumb idea, as setting this up to use “Windows Live Mail” (which, in fact is different to”Windows Live Essentials Mail”) is more difficult in thunderbird (and I’d need to use a VM all the time, because the installer fails miserable in wine).
The naming issue is only slightly confusing. Searching for “Windows Live imap setup” and whatnot will give you a list of irrelevant results talking about how to set up what is actually outlook to use a boring email server. The link you probably want is this one. 50MiB download wasted, I came across this:http://help.outlook.com/en-us/140/cc188672.aspx
