If you have trouble, refer to the instructions for your specific system. You will need the POP/SMTP settings for your email account to complete setup or to edit your email settings. Select your email from the dropdown above to see the correct settings.

Note: Windows 8 email does not support third party POP3 email accounts like CenturyLink. If you are using Windows 8, you will need to check your CenturyLink email through the web portal — CenturyLink.net
