Hello,
Frontier.com does not support IMAP, but this works for the Mail app on Windows 10. I am looking for places to get this posted as this information is not available elsewhere on the internet.
Click Start
Click Mail charm
Click Accounts
Click Add account
Click Advanced setup (scroll to bottom)
Click Internet mail
Account name - (Frontier) this field is for you to recognize it from your other email accounts
Your name - This is the name that shows on messages you send to others
Incoming email server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
Account type - IMAP4
Email address - your email address
User name - your email address
Password - your password
Outgoing (SMTP) email server - smtp.frontier.com:465:1
Keep the last four options all checked
Click Sign in
Click Done
Select the email address you just setup
Click the Sync this view button (circular arrows) in the upper right corner
by default the folders view shows (the empty) Sent items
Click More
Right click Sent items (star) in the right pane
Click Remove from Favorites
Right click Sent items (star) in the right pane
Click Add to Favorites

Any question, you are welcome to contact me.

Thank you
Thank you B, Bob, Bertrand, Benoit, Brad,

I will see if I can publish this in our "How-to's section within a few days.
Please note the CORRECTION post. My first post had an error, and I posted a CORRECTION. If you can, I think it would better serve all if my original post was corrected or maybe edited to direct people to the correction.
