Tbaytel Email Setup: Windows Live Mail 2012

Instructions on setting up your Tbaytel email account in Windows Live Mail 2012

There are two ways to access your Tbaytel email:

1. Webmail in a Web Browser (simplest)

Webmail is the quickest and easiest way to access your Tbaytel Email, all you need is the following:

  • A Web Browser: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari.
  • The Website address: http://mail.tbaytel.net or click Webmail at the top of www.tbaytel.net
  • Your Email address or Username: emailuser@tbaytel.net or just emailuser.
  • Your Email Password: Usually different than your myTbaytel, Wifi, or Internet password.

2. IMAP or POP3 in a dedicated Email App or Program

  • IMAP is newer and designed to synchronize messages and folders on the device with Webmail and all other IMAP devices.

  • POP3 is older and just downloads messages from the Inbox folder on the server. It does not synchronize with the server or other devices. If set up incorrectly POP3 can even cause messages to disappear on Webmail and other IMAP devices. (See the Advanced Properties screenshots at the end of this page for more info)

  • IMAP is best used when multiple devices or people share an Email address so they are all synchronized.

  • POP3 works best with one device, but as long as the Advanced Properties are correct it can work fine with other POP3 and IMAP devices, including Webmail.

  • POP3 is also great for backing up Email to a computer long after it's removed from the server and other IMAP devices, but IMAP can do the same using Offline Folders or Data Files.
