    Mail Live Tile not Working after Windows 8.1 Upgrade


    I have upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1. After doing so and making sure my accounts are all setup, I have found that I can not get the mail tile to act "live". I have verified it is set to live by right-clicking and seeing that link state "turn live tile off". I tried doing that and then turning it back on. I have tried rebooting. But the tile just isn't live. My other live tiles (news, finance, weather, store, etc) all seem to be live. It is only mail that I am having a problem with.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    OK. Not sure what is going on. My Yahoo Mail account would not allow me to set it up as get messages as they occur. I had to set it up as check every 15 minutes. My Gmail account did not have this issue. But still not getting the live tile to work. I saw 15 apps needed updating now, so did that (mail was one of them), but still no live tile working for mail.

    I finally decided to install Yahoo Mail because I needed the live tile for that account. But that live tile was not working either. I had people send me emails, and nothing. They sent to Yahoo and to Hotmail. Then after about 4 hours, all of a sudden I started getting the live tiles updating. I have no idea why.

    I removed Yahoo Mail, and still the live tile worked for mail. I waited until the next morning to verify it was all good and it is still working.

    So marking as solved. Not sure what solved it, but there you go.

    My Live Tile (Outlook and Internet Explorer) doesn't work after the upgrade as well. I click on the Tile and it says "This Page Cannot Be Displayed." I can only get into Live from my desktop IE. Help!
