    ngingPOP 3 Mail Account possible?


    Ok, I am admittiedly a complete newbie with Win 8 and quite frankly a little frustrated with it so far. Hopefully that will go away as I have time to learn as I have only had it for a couple days. Here are two problems I have:

    OK issue number one: When I originally was setting it up,I went to MAIL to try to set up my email to go along with my account / profile / messaging.

    Now when I originally started to set it up, I could of sworn I saw the option to set up a POP3 email account. As I did not have all my incoming & outgoing server info in front of me I left the screen. Now that I have the info, I see no way to set up a POP3 email account? Was I imagining things when I thought I saw that option, or am I nowq doing something wrong where I can not find that option. If there is that option for that email type could somebody please direct me in the right direction?

    Had you tried to "add a pop3" mail account you would have been given a pop up that said something to the effect of Pop3 mail is not supported at this time and I believe a link that sent you to your windows log in account in IE, with steps on how to add whatever pop3 addresses you have into that account. The mail app definitely needs improving when a cell phone can deliver mail more reliably than your PC can.
