Windows 8 Setup and Setting Up Email

Recommended Posts

I thought on my laptop that I just installed Windows 8 on that I'd do the whole "Microsoft" experience. That means use Internet Explorer, Hotmail and Windows App Store.


It has been frustrating trying to set everything up to work and it's not like I'm not technically inclined. If I can't do it how could my mother who just wants something easy to set up? ;)


First thing I did was set up a Microsoft Live account.


Now, I want to use the mail tile so I can check my email easily so I went to use Hotmail which has changed it's name now to Outlook.com. I set up an email here using IMAP settings so I can login to Outlook.com and voila that works!


So next challenge was to hook this outlook.com email account to the mail tile in Win8. I tried adding an Outlook email with my username/password that I use at Outlook.com and it gives me an error. Yet I can login at outlook.com so can't figure it out.


My Windows 8 experience so far has been time consuming. LOL
