Re: Windows Live Mail 2012 Setup Instructions

If you prefer to use POP3, you can.  There really isn't any difference between 2011 and 2012.

Windows Live Mail 2012 Setup Instructions

Comcast has instructions available for Windows Live Mail 2011 setup, but none can be found for Windows Live Mail 2012 and there must be some dofferences.


There is a window with POP3 in it and the 2011 instructions say change this to IMAP.


What is the secret to making that change?
