BEFORE YOU START: To set up a Windows phone with your email, you need to know your email address and password before proceeding and you must have Internet Connection (if your website was designed by Firstlincoln you can email to request for your email address, username and password).

NOTE: The steps to set up email on your Windows phone might be a little different depending on your make/model and your network provider. However, all the information you need to set up your account (user name, password, server settings) is in these steps. If you don’t see a button you’re supposed to tap, try scrolling down .
