Windows Live Mail

The configuration of your Windows Live Mail client is a three step process. You will need to ensure that your Outgoing SMTP settings are updated to point to the Pixel Perfect branding server, that your mails are correctly formatted in HTML and that your Character Encoding is set to Western European or UTF-8.

If you follow the step-by-step procedures below, you will be sending Pixel Perfect branded emails in no time!

If you do get stuck, please remember you can contact the Client Service Team who will be happy to assist.
