Windows Live Mail

Setting up your @goldrush.com Email Address with Windows Live Mail

  1. First, click on the Start button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
  2. Click on ‘Programs’, and find ‘Windows Live Mail’ in the list. Note: you may have to scroll down to find it. Once you do, click once on the name.
  3. Once Windows Live Mail has opened, click on the ‘Accounts’ tab at the top, and then click on the icon below that says ‘Add Email’. (If this is your first time opening or using Windows Live Mail, this step will not apply to you–please skip down to Step )
  4. Enter the email address you’d like to set up, along with the password directly below. Underneath the ‘Password’ field, type your name, or the name you would like your email messages to be sent from.
  5. At the bottom of this screen, check the box next to ‘Manually Configure server settings’, then click ‘Next’.
  6. Under ‘Incoming Mail’, type “mail.goldrush.com” in the ‘Server address’ field. Verify that the port number is 110.
  7. For ‘Logon user name’ you will type the first part of your email address (Ex: support@goldrush.com would just use ‘support’).
  8. Under ‘Outgoing Mail’, type “smtp.goldrush.com” in the ‘Server address’ field. Verify that the port number is 587.
  9. Check the box next to ‘Server requires authentication’.
  10. Make sure that all other boxes on this page remain UN-checked.
