Add or remove a Windows Mail account

You can set up a variety of different accounts using Windows Mail. You can set up a single personal e‑mail account, or you might also add your work e‑mail account and some newsgroups as well. Windows Mail makes managing multiple accounts easy by putting each account in its own folder.

Windows Mail supports three types of accounts: mail, news (newsgroups), and directory services. Directory services are online address books that are typically offered by organizations such as colleges and businesses.

Before you add an account, be sure that you have the logon and server information for your e‑mail account. For details about the information you'll need to set up an account, see Where to find your e‑mail account information.
