    Mail not working


    Mail app is not responding when started. There's bar to the left with 'accounts' but nothing else. What do I do?

    It's a beta OS. The mail app is definitely not finished. Try installing Windows Live Mail on the desktop.

    Can you provide a little more information please. What type of account are you logging in with and what type of mail account are you trying to access?
