    GMail with 8.1 mail app without microsoft account

    Hello all

    Using windows 8.1 with local account. I found out on how to run mail and calendar apps without the need of Microsoft account through here How to setup Windows 8.1 Mail App without using a Microsoft Account - Paul Jones - Technology Solutions Professional (TSP) - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

    What I can't find out is on how to make gmail work.
    I have both personal gmail account and my work email which uses google apps, both of them aren't working.
    Did anyone successfully managed to get the windows mail app to work without Microsoft account?
