  • Now, select “Sign in” and you are done

Now, comes the most important part. You have to check if the steps that you followed were done correct or not.

If yes, then reply to the mail already sent and then check if the reply is delivered, which verifies that the Incoming and Outgoing mail server details on Windows Phone 7 configured correctly.

However, if you are having any difficulty in either sending or receiving mails then you have to check the details of Incoming and Outgoing SMTP mail server again. Even a tiny error can throw the entire effort off the track. Correct the mistake and check again. If the details you have entered are perfect and still unable to send / receive emails on your windows phone then do contact the nearest service center to get it fixed. There must be some other problem which is stopping you from accessing your email on your mobile phone.

Some times, the Reset Network Settings or Factory Reset helps as it flushes out all the settings that prevents your from Connecting to Internet or Settings related to Email.
