Hello there,


Can anyone help me? I am trying to set up a mail client account on Windows 8. I believe the mail client that comes with Windows 8 is called Mail. I have searched how to set it up and they all say go to the Start screen and click on the Mail icon. They then all say to log in using Microsoft email etc. but when I click on the Mail icon it just immediately launches iCloud. I can't find any tutorial that mentions this happening and once iCloud is open it is not intuitive as to what to do next.


Does anyone know what I need to do?


I just need a mail client that will allow me to view my Yahoo mails as well as my company mails..


Thank you very much in advance.

I like  Mozilla Thuinderbird, easy setup and it handles multiple accounts.
