Windows Mail Problems

  1. #11

    It may look lengthy because I introduced the keyboard and mouse navigation to show that it is possible to navigate within an app using such. In reality it is much quicker. It would even be faster using touch.

    As you can see I dual boot with Windows 7. I use WLM there. I'll dare say that from a standstill I'll have a copy of my email sitting in my documents folder using the Windows 8 Mail app before WLM even has a chance to finish opening. The same with an email client within a browser.

    BTW, If one is using an online mail client, one is laid open to viruses and hacking. This is the advantage of the Modern walled-garden apps. More secure, quicker to use, and using less resources to do so.

    Also, this person is looking for help with the Windows 8 Mail app, not another mail client. I addressed that issue. You did not. Seems to me this is Windows 8 support forum, not a prior OS support forum.

Problems with Windows8 Mail
Windows 8 Mail seems to have many problems. When I connect my Hotmail account, I only see unread counts on the Inbox - not for any of my folders until I actually open them in Mail. Is this expected behavior??? Sure makes someone with a lot of folders unhappy when first setting up Mail...:confused:...
