windows 8 mail app not working and syncing

  1. #11

    My mail app wasn't syncing with my hotmail account until I either signed into my windows live account in IE or I enabled SSL/TLS (I did them both around the same time) so maybe try one of those things, after I did both of those things I had an email received message straight away.

    I avoided Widows Mail since the day it was purported to have bugs and the pop issue arose.
    I have had seamless performance with Windows Live Mail,, Gmail and my isp's program.
    WLM is my email client and sends links or pages without a hitch.
    I hope this helps.
