you're able to tell that yourself. open the https://www.vodafone.co.nz/our-company/ceo-executive-team/ page. Clicking on each "mug shot" will create an email, with their address shown. good luck.

Why has my reply been deleted?' I asked when am i getting my email on how to forward my emails and said what bad service as i never ever got an email notifying ihug was closing.

Only found out on the news. Yet my daughter is using her ihug email address i set up for her and she got a email, so where is mine? Very poor indeed. Been with you guys for years but maybe its time to find someone else?

OK, I've found out how to do it. It's complicated and was difficult for me (I'm 82 years old and could do without all this hassle). What I've done is set up a gmail IMAP account in my Windows Live Mail. Then, to my astonishment all my Gmail labels I'd set up appeared in the same panel as my Windows Live Mail folders. I was then able to drag emails from my Windows Live Mail folders onto the Gmail labels. They then uploaded to Gmail. In Gmail itself I had to make sure IMAP was enabled which it was. I haven't discovered yet how to get my contacts into Gmail, but that's less of a problem as I don't have that many of them so I could always type them into Gmail. Thank you for trying to help me. I hope this may help someone else who is struggling with a computer based email client.

@waltonnz

Go to Windows Live Mail (WLM)

Chose Contacts

Up the top on the main ribbon theres an option to EXPORT.

Chose CSV file.

Save this to your computer.

 

Open Gmail on your browser- Not WLM. Need to be done through browser

Go to your Gmail Contacts (accesss from Gmail icon - left side-above the Compose button-theres a drop down option.)

Contacts will open in new window

Theres two versions of Contacts - New and Old

 

For New version:

Click on More (about half way done on left side)

Go Import

If may tell you to go to the Old version of Contacts - Choose this. Can switch again once completed.

Go Import Contacts (again left side)

Browse to where you saved the CSV file and import them

You will need to check details of the contacts but I found that mine imported fine

 

For Old version: choose Import Contacts

Choose CSV file

 

To go back to newer version of Contacts choose Try Contacts Preview

 

When you switch back to the newer version (if you do) it might tell you, you have duplicates. I think it gives an option of merging them.

Windows Live Mail (WLM) can be used to send and receive your Gmails BUT it will NOT work with Outlook (or Hotmail) anymore.

Microsoft killed that off last year.

 

You can set your Gmail account in WLM by going to your Email Accounts

(top theres a icon that looks like a small book? with a dropdown arrow head -   top left)

 

Click on that drops a window down then Options->Email Accounts

This will list your accounts. One will be listed as the Default. You can change the Clearnet (or what ever) from default and make the Gmail one the default.

At some poiunt you will also need to stop Clearnet account from syncing and receiving mail (after Nov).

Double click the Clearnet account and uncheck the box that says "Include this account when receiving mail or synchonzing"

You can do the same with the Gmail account BUT check the box so it does receive and sunc.

 

ALSO

If you add new folders in Gmail via the browser to update them in WLM

On the left side where it shows your Gmail account. Highlight the Gmail account and RIGHT CLICK on the mouse.

This will open a small window and one option is "Download All Folders"

 

I have found that sometimes I hav added a folder in Gmail BUT it doesnt appear (for some resason) in WLM.

This way will bring those folders in.

 

Any emails you have in WLM should remain on your computer and you can sync them to Gmail in the way you have discriped.

BUT you should alos back those emails up to a safe place on your computer. (in case something ever gos wrong- you can restoire them)

 

Click on the book icon (top left) choose Export Mail -> Email messages.

Choose Microsoft Windows Live Mail - then Next

Choose an folder on your compute to save these emails to. (I set up a folder called Saved Emails and folders within that labelled the date)

Once you have a folder assigned just follow the prompts. I save All emails when it asks.

It will then save and backup all your emails to the assigned folder for safe keeping

Thank you. I have managed to set up a Gmail account in my Windows Live Mail. As for backing up, I have always backed up my emails every week. I have my computer set to back up all my data and emails automatically. I've had a few computer disasters in my time so those backups have been very useful.

I cannot seem to add gmail or yahoo address's to outlook 2011 on my iMac or windows 10 computer running outlook 365.

I get this every time.

 

The server for account "Yahoo" returned the error "[AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] LOGIN Invalid credentials." Your username/password or security settings may be incorrect. Would you like to try re-entering your password?

 

My username and password are correct!!!???

 

 

 

please help me with this problem
