    Not getting e-mail in Windows 8 Mail app from wireless cam

    I have two Linksys Wireless IP Cameras. Both are configured to detection motion and send an e-mail with 5 pictures to my e-mail address.

    This configuration has been working for over 1 year and works. To verify, I get e-mails from the both cameras when I use Internet Explorer and login to http :// with my (aka Hotmail) email account.

    I upgraded to Windows 8, logged on the very first time with my Microsoft Live account. From all appearances, it looks like the Windows 8 Mail App was configured to use my e-mail account. There are message there that I see when I login via Internet Explorer.

    The only problem is, I never ever get any of the emails that were sent from my Wireless Cameras in the Windows 8 Mail app.

    If I sign in to my email account via Internet Explorer those messages are there. As a test, while I was looking at one of my emails via Internet Explorer, I forwarded it to myself. That message with pictures and all did arrive in the Windows 8 Mail app.

    So, does anyone have any ideas why the Windows 8 Mail app does not get the e-mails sent from my Wireless Cameras?
