    win 8 and outlook


    Can anyone direct me to a place where I can learn how to use the 'outlook' that comes with Windows8?
    Have been struggling for days using it. Finally learned how to add folders but cannot figure out how to print an email. Due to the fact that it is web based do I need to go to the web to accomplish this rather than using the 'mail' link on my start screen?
    Thanks in advanced..

    Yes, I have an All-in-one HP, that I just purchased and it includes a mail service called 'outlook'. Believe me it is not the equivalent of Microsoft Outlook. Since win8 is a MS product they included it with the package...

    With e-mail open go to right bottom of screen open settings charm, click on Devices, select M/S XPS Document Writer then Print and Windows 8 is supposed to speed things up.

    Don't confuse this Mail option with the two other versions of Outlook i.e Windows Office Outlook and Outlook Live

    I had the same problem printing emails (theatre tickets LOL)
    with the email on the screen bring up the panel on the right side of the screen, swipe from the bezel or mouse to the right margin,
    Select Devices and then Printer.

    I know, not the most logical.

    Can you provide a Version Number and/or Link to this Outlook you have?
