  • Incoming Server Address = mail.bmts.com
  • Incoming Port = 993
  • Authenticate using = Clear text

  • Outgoing Server Address = smtp.bmts.com
  • Outgoing Port = 587
  • Requires a secure connection (SSL) = enabled (on both incoming and outgoing servers)
  • Requires authentication = enabled

Once complete, click the Next button to continue.











Congratulations! Your e-mail account should be ready to begin using in Windows Live Mail. Click the Finish button to close the account settings window and you should now see your Bruce Telecom e-mail address listed on the left of the Windows Live Mail screen.
