Hi guys,
I want to set up my windows phone so that I receive my emails from my xtra account, with yahoo as the provider, but keep getting the message 'cannot find your settings' when I try to sign in..

Does anyone know any tricks?

Please be gentle with me, I'm not a techie! Thanks Laughing

Go to Settings | Email + Accounts, tap "Add an account", select Yahoo! and enter your full @xtra.co.nz email address and password. That's all you need.

Once added, edit the account to check email manually if you don't need/want it checking all the time.

Its interesting that windows phone requires full details... Normally just the full email address should be enough

Read my replies.. You only need email and password.

You only enter those details if you select something other than a Yahoo! account type.

Interesting. I've created Yahoo! accounts using @xtra.co.nz email addreses in both my LG and Nokia Lumia Windows Phone by just entering user name and password - you have to enter the full email address as user name.
