    Friend, I found a tutorial with the windows 8 mail app, see if it helps you at all:
    Mail App - Add an Account in Windows 8.1

    I think it only has IMAP

    If it only says IMAP, try to use it anyway.

    If it doesn't work, then try to get the live essentials mail program from the internet that I have.

    could this be the same as login info being the mail address he uses normally for all his things not work in the mail app included in Windows 8? what i meant was. his user account is tied to a mail address (when he configured the win 8 laptop he wrote his standard mail) to easily get mail through win8 mail app. and this doesnt work. i'll tell him to try the essentials.
