    Windows 8 Mail and Pop3 servers?


    I tried to add my ISP's pop3 email account, but I don't see any option to do that.

    Am I missing something?

    WORKS FOR ME, AND HERE’S HOW. (Not an expert, but this is what I did, and I can send and receive emails through my pop3 server (which is Cox, in Arizona).
