    How do I get back the Mail App that comes with Windows 8?


    On my Asus Vivo Smarttab, I couldn't get my email programs (1 yahoo; 1 gmail) to work using the Mail App on the Start screen.

    I thought I'd get an update for the Mail App from the Windows 8 store. Here's where I did something stupid. I uninstalled the Mail program first.

    I can't find the App in the store.

    Any idea what I should be looking for?

    Open up the app store, move mouse to the top and right click, select your apps, then click on the app you want and click re-install.
