I felt like I had a seamless upgrade to Windows 8. I am really impressed with how smoothly it went. I am experiencing one problem. My mail feature is not working. I synced with Microsoft and it took my email address and password. It shows it but I can't seem to get any email messages to come in.

Is anyone else having this problem. Any ideas on how to correct this would sure be appreciated.

What email provider do you use?

What if there were no hypothetical situations?

Frontier Communications. Verizon sold everybody in eight states down the river. All they wanted to keep was their lucrative cell phone business.

Don't know if that makes a difference or not.

I was using Outlook for my email client. I didn't want to use Windows Live (now Outlook.com). I guess I could use Gmail and bypass this entire problem. I was able to click on the Mail Tile and I had some email but now I get nothing.

Thanks for any and all suggestions

When you are trying to set up your email, it is automatically setting it up or are you manually entering the mail servers and ports. If it is automatic, you might want to look up the instructions on Frontier help for manually setting it up. I know that they recently changed some email security settings, which might confuse the auto-setup.

What if there were no hypothetical situations?

Outlook.com should work just fine in the Mail app on the Start page. That's what I use and have no problem. Outlook is a separate software program (part of MS Office) and; Windows Live Mail is a software program part of Windows Essentials 2012. I was not able to load my ISP's email service into their app however. It may be one of those apps that will only work with the 'generic' email services (like Hotmail/Outlook.com or GMail).

A little advertised "perk" is that the Mail app doesn't do POP (this isn't related to your issues I think but could help others).

Check with your ISP/Mail provider to see if they have specific instructions on how to set it up.
