Windows 8 Mail Client App

The Microsoft’s Windows 8 Consumer Preview Edition is available for download for Free. Windows 8 Operating System has been turned upside-down to all new features. Although, there are a bundle of amazing Windows 8 Applications pre-installed such as Calendar, People, Photos, Social Networking, Mail, and a few other available for download from the Windows 8 Apps Store. However, here I have looked at Windows 8 Mail App.

The Windows 8 Mail App works as it was earlier promised to work like. Mail app is a built-in mail client for Windows 8 that supports formats including IMAP, Exchange, and POP. In other words, the Windows 8 Mail client works with almost all the email accounts available over the Internet.

The Windows 8 Mail App is extremely powerful for advanced users. But the Windows 8 Mail client does not have its own contacts lists. You need to call up the Contact or People app and select contacts from there. The interface of this Windows 8 Mail app is very simple and easy-to-use.

How To Use Windows 8 Mail Client App:

You can easily set-up the Windows 8 Mail app with Yahoo, Gmail, or any other email account. It does not require any extra configuration. All you need to do is just type in your e-mail ID and password.

Once you are signed-in, you can now read your mails from your signed-in account over this amazing Windows 8 Mail app. For example I signed-in via Gmail account.

The options available inside the Windows 8 Mail app are very basic such as mark an e-mail as unread, move an e-mail to folder, search through e-mail, and more.

In short, Windows 8 Client app is excellent to work on. It, simply, does what it says. Go ahead and try out yourself.

    I’ve been struggling to figure out Windows 8 Mail app for several weeks now, and it is very frustrating. Attachments will not open. Reader is useless. How do you set a signature? I’m using webmail instead right now, as there is a limit to how much time I can spend messing around with Windows 8. My time costs me money as I’m self-employed, with no clerical support. No techies sitting around waiting to help. Overall I’m disappointed. Thankfully I could download a start button so one or two steps are eliminated.
