Accessing gmail with my Windows live mail account

Can anyone tell me how to access (link) my g-mail with my desk top Windows Live Mail account? I lost all these connections due to a "Social Hack" on a not-for-profit Charity organization of which I am the Chairperson. Fortunately, the bandits were unable to access our Bank Account, but they devastated my g-mail and other accounts. If you can help me get my Live ail working it would be awesome..thanks!

Follow the instructions on that site. By social hack, do you mean social engineering? Who was tricked?

: Accessing gmail with my Windows live mail account

Thank you for answering my question. First, by "Social Hack" I meant that my computer was compromised by a hacker and used to send emails to the accountant for a Charity Board that I Chair, in an attempt to have her fraudulently send a large amount of our money to an account in a different part of the country. In the process, my Windows Live Mail Account, which received my mail from my gmail account, was disabled and so far I have been unable to get my Live Mail account up and running again.
Unfortunately, the Instructions you sent me require I turn on the ability " use less secure apps", but since I am using the two-step password process now for Google, it won't let me do it. I have downloaded back up codes that worked to get my Blackberry receiving my gmail, but the codes I generated for Live Mail are rejected.
Not sure where to go from here.
Very confusing!

I can understand why you don't want to reduce the security of gmail or Windows Live. I don't trust either of them. If I were to use gmail, I would want to login directly. It might be better to forget about Windows Live. If you haven't changed your passwords, change them now.
