I have just been allocated an email address from my broadband provider along with an email address from my university for my external studies. I am using a MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard. My normal emails go through MacMail and a GMail account with no problems. The windows live email has been a problem for me since these addresses were allocated a few days ago. When i try to log in to these addresses through Safari i get the same problem - it continues to ask me to put in a phone number which it always says is not valid even though it is my phone phone number and the line for my ADSL broadband. As this is vital to my studies has anyone got any suggestions. I have emailed both the university and the service provider but they have not given me an answer that works so far. I went to Mac as it is so good for non technical people like me but am forced to use Microsoft. All sensible suggestions accepted as i need to log on to do some work for study very soon. Thank you in advance.
