    Cannot add account to Mail app


    This is my first experience with Windows 8 and I cannot add an account to the Mail app. I simply do not have the option...When I bring up the charm menu and click on "settings" I do have an "accounts". I only have 2 options "Permissions" and "Rate and Review".

    I have checked my user account settings and I am an administrator.

    The computer is a Gateway NE56R14h notebook

    Thanks

    did you disable UAC? Windows Store apps require UAC to be enabled.

    I checked the UAC and it is set to the default "Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer"

    Got it working. Computer was "setup" by one of the big box stores and apparently not right. Reinstalled Windows now all is well.
