Got a domain with Windows Live, have an e-mail address, can't work out how to add another?

As above, I managed to create an e-mail address with my domain when I set it up. It probably asked me to at the time, now I can't work out for the life of me how to set up another. Surely I'm allowed more than one?

Can't find the answer in the help anywhere on the site.

Anyone know???

Thanks!

Thanks, where is that though?

I've tried signing in with both my original e-mail address that I signed up with and also my new one that I created. As I understand it the first one should have the rights to do it but I can't find the option anywhere.

Think I'm getting there, it says something about can't do it until I prove I own the domain by registering in the DNS? I bought the domain from them so they should know that I own it!!

"This domain has already been registered with a different Windows Live ID. To administer bhcb.co.uk, you must prove that you own this domain by making an entry in DNS."

I've tried with both my sign ins. The old on I registered the domain with and the only sign in that I was able to set up for it, my first e-mail address on the domain.

Soudns odd... you could add the DNS entry though if you know how?

That looks alot more like it. Think it'll work here. Strange why you can do it via office live and not via windows live. I thought office was like word, excel etc but online. Whereas windows live was more like domains etc.

Hammer time!

Rep coming to both of you, dcx's way was the way I did it initially. Really don't understand why they're seperate and there's no help or anything telling you to log in to the other service for e-mail options.

[FONT="Book Antiqua"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Sienna"]Did you originally register it through office live?

Must admit I've not done anything with office live. I used my domain with the original Windows Live Custom Domains, which became admin center.

glad you got it sorted.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Not sure to be honest, I used the office live web-site to set up my original e-mail address (although forgot that it was seperate to the windows live part). Not sure where I set up my domain, your link looks very familiar too.

Both seem to let me access my e-mail etc but only one lets me set up new e-mail address by the look of it.
