    Windows Live Mail


    I have a Windows RT 8.1 Surface tablet. I am wondering if I can install and use WindowsLiveMail.
    Right now I have to use Outlook and I would like to change to WLM. I have another machine running
    Windows 7 and using WLM and like it very much.
    Thanks for any help.

    Hello Shiron,

    I'm afraid that RT doesn't allow the installation of desktop apps. Only apps from the Store.

    If you like, there is an included "Mail" app available to use.

    Mail App - Add an Account in Windows 8.1

    Hope this helps some,
    Shawn
