    Configure POP3 ISP email acount?


    I see options for Hotmail, Gmail, and Exchange...

    Is there any way to configure Yahoo mail, or my ISP's POP3 email server?

    I don't see any way after hunting around a bit. I still get most of my email via RoadRunner.

    At this point in time no one has written a Metro mail application that supports POP3 or IMAP.

    Until one is available at the Store, Thunderbird or any legacy mail application will run fine
    in Desktop mode.

    Not sure if it will work today, because everyone knows mail ain't delivered on Sunday :)

    Well, no, the Post Office is actually fine except for a law the GOP passed a while ago that forces the Post Office to have fully funded 70 years of pension or something like that, unlike any other company, which is making it appear broke when it's not. But this is politics and stupid Republican crap and a complete manufactured crisis, which doesn't belong here, and is completely off topic, so just drop it.

    I use Window Live Mail and it works fine. I dual boot and use Windows 8 for testing only. On Windows 8 I have it set to leave the mail on the server until they are cleared from my deleted mail folder. This way when I go back to Windows 7 all my important mail is re-downloaded.

    I agree, windows live mail works fine for my POP 3 server.
    It's bundled with the other Windows Live Essentials stuff.
