    I have windows Live Mail on Dell laptop and I have gmail account on it. Can I add VerizonAOL web mail to it also? Don't see why not. But how do I do it? Do I need to know servers and so forth? Haven't tried as of yet. Just thought it would be convenient. If gmail works verizonAOL should also I figure.

    Yes, you can add accounts to Windows Live Mail. Here are instructions from Microsoft.

    Here are the AOL/Verizon server settings

    POP3
    Incoming: pop.verizon.net995 SSL
    Outgoing: smtp.verizon.net 465 SSL
    Make sure SSL is enabled for the incoming and outgoing mail servers.

    IMAP
    Incoming: imap.aol.com 993 SSL
    Outgoing: smtp.aol.com 465 SSL
    Make sure SSL is enabled for the incoming and outgoing mail servers.​

    Because you use several computers to access your email, I suggest that you have them all set up using IMAP in your Windows Live Mail. That will keep the email on all devices in sync. Better yet, just use a browser, i.e. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, to access your email. Then you don't have to worry about keeping the email in sync across all your computers/devices. Also, you don't have to set up anything. Just access your mail via www.mail.aol.com.

    Finally got both the g mail and the verizon AOL mail set up and working on the Windows Live Mail.All I had to do was enter email address and correct password, and the greeting name.I found I was entering incorrect password before and when I entered correct on I received 5 emails right away. I will write all this down in case need it in future. Thanks.
