The server requires either a POP3 or IMAP server to work with Windows Live Mail, which is an upgraded version of Microsoft Outlook, or with a web email client. Microsoft Exchange server requires that the IT administrator enables and configures it in order to make it work in Windows Live Mail.

Check the steps given below and set up Microsoft Exchange Server mail service on Windows Live Mail:
