Moving on to the article, we’ll teach you how to manually configure your BigPond webmail on your Windows mail program. This article will walk you through the process of adding a Telstra Mail email account to your Windows Mail 10 application or modifying your email account. It contains the advanced mail server information that you’ll require. You’ll need your Telstra Mail email address and password before you begin.

To add your Telstra email address to Windows Mail 10, follow these steps:

  • Select Settings then select the cog sign in Windows Mail 10.
  • Choose Manage Accounts, then click on Add Account.
  • Choose Other account (POP, IMAP)
  • Sign in by entering your email address and password correctly.
  • Your email account should be activated. Select Done as your action.

To make changes to your email account settings, follow these steps:

  • Again, select Settings, then the cog sign – in Windows Mail 10.
  • To open the account settings section, go to Manage Accounts and then choose the email account you want to modify.
  • To update your syncing options, select Change mailbox sync settings. Please keep in mind that this is entirely optional.
  • When finished, click on Done to return to the Account Settings page.
  • Choose Advanced mailbox settings.
  • Update your server configuration:
    • Enter imap.telstra.com: 993:1 as in the ‘Incoming email server’ field.
      • Enter smtp.telstra.com: 465:1 for ‘Outgoing (SMTP) email server’.
      • Check the box next to ‘Outgoing server requires authentication.’
      • Check that ‘Use the same username and password for sending email‘ is checked.
      • Check the box next to ‘Require SSL for incoming email.’
      • Check the box next to ‘Require SSL for outgoing email.’
  • Changes should be made to your email account. Choose Done.

After you complete the last step, your BigPond account should be successfully setup on your Windows Mail app and now you can send/receive and browse all of your BigPond mails through your Windows Mail app. For further support, dial-up our technical support team.
