How to Set Up FrontierNet Email

A rural Internet, television and phone company, Frontier Communications provides "triple-play" services and Wi-Fi Internet access. Frontier has recently acquired former Verizon holdings. Frontier supports five distinct email hosts, including Frontier.net. On some Windows 7 computers, Windows Live Mail comes pre-installed. If it is not currently installed on your computer, you can download and install it. Windows Vista computers ship with Windows Mail pre-installed. Windows Vista users may also upgrade to Windows Live Mail if desired.
