Adding account in Windows Live Mail

As someone asked me about adding domain account in Windows Live Mail, I am posting the steps here.
So this will apply to any custom domain accounts powered by Windows Live. I have already posted configuring such accounts in Outlook2007 using Outlook Connector here.

So open your Windows Live Mail, from the Tools ->Accounts->Press the Add button and select the E-mail Account and press Next and fill Name, Your E-mail ID and password and let the check box 'automatically determine my login ID' and 'remember password' checked.Press next, you'll get this window,And choose 'My incoming mail server is a 'HTTP' server and press Next. Remember domain accounts are powered by Windows Live.
(For domain other than Windows Live , you will have to enter details for Incoming and Outgoing server using POP)
And you'll get this windows saying " You have successfully enterd in the information required to set up your account.Press 'Finish'.Press Close.

And you can see the new account in Windows Live Mail and it'll start downloading the folder(Inbox, Drafts... etc.) and the mail.That's all. Hope it helps.
