Windows 8 email settings

Hi I just installed windows 8 pro and entered my plusnet email settings in add other account. Seems like it won't have it.
If someone could give me some pointers as to correct settings or if I am doing anything wrong can you please help me.
Perhaps the port numbers have changed?
Any help would be fantastic.
Thanks
Gary

Re: Windows 8 email settings

I just had a look, if you're using the big MAIL button then it requires the IMAP settings for PlusNet (least I can't see an POP setting) so try imap.plus.net

Having trouble with mine here too, use imap.plus.net I presume relay.plus.net for outgoing do I need to alter the port number or leave as is?

Re: Windows 8 email settings

If you deselect the secure options for the imap and smtp servers then the port numbers will default to their correct values.
