    Windows Mail


    I just got a new computer with windows 8. I am trying to use the Windows mail that was included and get away from my old Outlook, however, whenever the Windows mail syncs, it puts all emails in the deleted folder whether I have read them or not. Please tell me there is a way to make this stop happening........................

    not to put you down on the mail app but it doesnt seem like a finished product to me, i heard the microsoft is going have some updates for it in the near future.

    I personally gave up on it and use windows essential live mail, it works for all my email accounts, of course essentials mail doesnt work the same as email map but for what i do its fine.

    I installed win8 & I have a mail problem. I thought the mail program on win8 was terrible so I installed live mail & made it the default mail program but my incoming messages go into the win8 mail rather than live mail. does anybody know how I can correct it? jimjoh
