Windows 10: Set up Charter email?

    Set up Charter email?


    Having an issue with setting up my Charter email account. I cannot find what the server setting should be..it lists only 1 box for server and not an outgoing or incoming as I am used to seeing. My Charter account is what I use for Microsoft so it wont let me delete it and start over. Has anyone set up a charter account successfully?

    The problem is their are no boxes anywhere to input all of that..it only gives me a space that says "server" no incoming or outgoing or port number.

    Suggestion :
    Install Windows Live Mail as your email client > configure Charter email account into WLM.

    WLM is one of the programs included in Windows Essentials. You have a choice of which program you want or don't want.

    Is that acceptable ?

    Whichever email client you use it will have the boxes for you to input the information above.........

    Are you talking about the built in mail app?

    For a new account:
    Go to mail > settings > Accounts > Add Account. On the "Choose account" box scroll to the bottom and select "Advanced Setup"

    For existing account:
    Go to mail > settings > Accounts > <pick your account> Change mailbox and sync settings > Advanced mailbox settings

    Then to enter the port numbers you put them in this format (with a : after the server name). This is for gmail so you'd want to change the server names/ports etc
