    Welcome to Windows EightForums, Jb5781.

    Are you speaking of using the included Store Mail app in 8.1?

    If so, Open the app > Charms bar > Settings > Help. It will explain all you need to know to set up accounts.

    The Store Mail app is a Modern/Metro email client app. You can configure/add any Outlook.com account plus various other accounts such as seen here:

    Open the Mail app > Charms bar > Settings > Accounts > Add an account.

    It is limited to SMTP accounts only. It will not accept POP accounts.

    okay, so I understand how this could work. My aim is to have all my contact info in one place so that my android tablet and android phone can share the calendar, contacts and email. will this program do this? will my hotmail contacts display in this email program?

    Not sure about the Calendar, but I know Google contacts can be configured to show in the People app for I had an Android phone up to the first of the year in which I did so. If they changed it since then I wouldn't know. I now have a Windows Phone.

    We had better research this further (or some other member may know) before you make a decision. I don't want to misguide you.

    I'll be back. By all means please feel free to comment if need be.

    One thing I'd like to mention and it's one of the beauties of the system is that Mail, People, Calendar, Photos, OneDrive, and other apps all work in conjunction of one another, not only from within the apps, but also Charms.

    I obtained this opening the Calendar app > Settings > Help. It seems Google stopped supporting new EAS (Exchange ActiveSync) connections in some scenarios Calendar app help - Windows Help, so this may be a problem for you, however they have a workaround: How to see your Google events in the Calendar app - Windows Help

    Open Mail app > Settings > Help to get this for POP account workarounds: Using email accounts over POP on Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 - Windows Help

    Like I stated, I got rid of the Android and bought a Windows phone. Personally I got sick and tired of Google world. I think their attitude stinks. Only my opinion of course.

    I don't think Bill Gates works in the service department.

    Did you try and contact HP with your problem? They are the ones responsible to service your system since they loaded the OS on it.

    BTW, what is v?
