This set-up guide for Windows Live Mail will use the name "Alpha Charlie" as the setup guide example. Alpha Charlie has firstname.lastname@example.org as an email address and email@example.com as the e-mail alias.
Please Note: An e-mail alias (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) is created in mits.usask.ca and for this guide has been used in the Thunderbird setup. Instructions for creating an alias may be found here.
