    Mail App - How to rearrange order of multiple accounts?


    I've configured multiple accounts in the Windows 8.1 Mail App.

    I haven't found a way to rearrange the order that the accounts are listed in the bottom left corner of the mail app window.

    Any suggestions?

    I haven't found a way. It appears that the logged in Microsoft Account is listed first, and all others are then listed alphabetically. I guess you can change the names of the rest to rearrange them, but the Microsoft Account stays on top.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    Lifetec I'm using the mail app not Live so this won't work.

    I'll try numbering the accounts to see whether I can get them in the right order.
