This article contains step by step instructions on how to add a mail account, for a mailbox you have created on the Daily server, in the default Windows 8 mail client.

In Windows 8 Select the Mail
If this is your first time setting up Mail in Windows 8 you will need to enter your Windows live login details and click on Save
before you can add your mailbox details.
On the Add your email account
page select the method you wish to use to connect to the mailbox (either IMAP or POP) and click on Connect
Click on Show more details

Enter the details to connect to your mailbox on the Daily server noting the following specific details:
