    Mail Metro App - Not downloading Exchange email?


    Help

    I love the new Wnidows 8 Metro MAIL app!
    I can add my gmail, Hotmail and even my corporate exchange server email account!

    Only two issues:

    1) My corporate exchange account successfully downloaded email and calendar for last two weeks (as per default)
    - BUT it never against downloads emails? I change it from 2 weeks to as it arrives, also tried every 15 minutes but it refuses to download any new emails?

    2) Gmail : when sending an email it also sends an email to Gmail account itself?

    I also have to add that I right clicked in the mail app, and in bottom left corner clicked the 'Sync' menu item.
    It did pull emails from gmail / Hotmail - but again no emails from my corporate exchange account
