Problem recieving mail on Windows Mail in Vista

Hi, I was struggling to setup my email in Vista's Windows Mail program.
I read up on the instructions as per plusnet's setup guide.
All seemed ok but for some reason I was not recieving any emails into the windows mail program, but on checking the webmail portal they were found to be on there.
I checked several times all settings as suggested but still the same.
I went back into the Windows Mail Account - Tools -Accounts-Properties-General Tab, and noticed that under the user info at the bottom is a check box that say's
Include this account when recieving mail or syncronizing
I put a tick in this and hey presto my emails are now coming through ok.
If i have missed this info in your setup guide for Vista's Email, my apologies. But  I could not see this and hence struggled to get it sorted.
Can some one check this and amend if necessary to help others should the have a problem like I did.
