You should get it from whatever email provider you plan to use. Many
internet providers include being an email provider in what they offer
their users. The setting are usually different for each email provider.

However, if I remember correctly, the live.com email provider won't
connect to Windows Mail properly since it uses the HTTP protocol,
which Windows Mail won't handle. In this case, you may prefer
the Windows Live Mail email/newsreader program, which will handle
the HTTP protocol as well as the POP3, IMAP, and SMTP protocols:

http://get.live.com/wlmail/overview

If you install it, expect to import all the messages currently stored
under Windows Mail and most of its settings, then hide (but not
delete) Windows Mail.
