Reestablish Windows Live Mail account after HHD failure?

by TrackerJ / October 4, 2012 4:58 AM PDT

The HHD in my desktop failed (read/write arm). The shop installed a new HHD and reinstalled the operating system - Windows 7 64 bit. So, currently, I do not have Windows Live Mail on my computer as I did before the failure.

How do I reestablish my account? Do I just install LM (Essentials) and enter the information I used to originally set it up?
Thanks for any replies.
