    email client


    I found FF to be very easy - after MSIE 10 I could not believe how easy it was. My questions were more aimed at the explorer which I like to use. I have WLM which gathers all my accounts I one place and serves and the client so I am all right for now. I thought I read that Outlook.com was the preferred client but it does not appear on my default programs page with MSIE 10. My wife also wants to stick with MS.
    It is an application and not a program so it is uncertain whether it can be used as a desktop client.
    Thank you all for your help.
    I hate to seem stubborn but I am trying to use explorer and stick with MS for continuity among other things. Sea Monkey actually provides all I need too but I would like to stick with MS.
    I cannot force something to be tht won't.

    **Has anyone ever tried to at least see if Outlook.com is available with Win 8 by looking at the default program page and also "file association" and click "change programs" to see what is there?? I would love to hear from you if you do!!

    One question please; can Outlook.com be used with MSIE 10 to File>send link by email or not?

    I think you both for your help but I am afraid I am a little slow on your instructions. First, I don't know what Win+C->Settings is referring to. I also don't understand the settings charm reference. I am including a screen shot of the pane on my Windows desktop so we are all talking about the same thing.



    If you would be a little more specific on how to access these methods, I would greatly appreciate it. I did find one please called Windows Credentials that referenced mail and I removed it but it didn't seem to have any impact on this Mail pane. It displayed my Hotmail/Outlook account immediately.

    Is there a way to reset it so there is no personal info again? I don't really know what I am doing but I do know I don't want a bunch of folks able to read my personal email. I have looked everywhere I know to look.
    Open the Mail app, Win+C->Settings->Accounts then click on the mail account you want to remove, on the bottom, click on remove account

    Open the Mail app. Then bring up the "Settings Charm" , eg. with the <WindowsKey> + <I> key combination.

    Then select Accounts. Click on your account and there is a option at the bottom to "Remove all Accounts" (assuming yours is the only one there).
