i`m trying to set up an email address with windows live but in the tutorial it says in step no.8
"Select "set up email on a different provider". i cannot find this option anywhere. i`ve pasted in the mx records from windows live and i receive a setup completed successfully message but that`s it. when i refresh the windows live page it just keeps asking me to refresh. any help appreciated

Hello Geoff,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this trouble. I have looked up your account details and see that you have signed up through our partnership program with Google's GBBO. As part of GBBO's TOS, you need to use Google Apps for your email service. This is why your Windows Live is not working.

Please read these instructions for using Google Apps: Setting up your email with Google Apps
