    wow! worked like a 'charm' (sorry, couldn't resist) ... so final question: do i understgand this correctly - that Windows Outlook mail does not require being 'connected/ signed onto a browser -( my browser is either aol or chrome) - but to launch Outlook mail i just click on the app on desktop and it launches so i can send mail w/o a browser ?? if that's correct then having this email program as an 'extra' or full time' email program (i also use aol but must first sign-into Chrome) would mean if for some reason i can't connect to the internet i could still send email until things are rectified ? do i have that right ? thanks again !

    I 'm glad that worked for you. Unfortunatly I have only had Windows 8 for about a week. I am only aware of MS Outlook 2007 and I have no knowladge on how online mail works. I am sure that someone will help you out with it . As far as I know though, if you used your outlook email address as your login , from what Ive read its auto configured and doesnt require any further config and apparently stays on (which would bother me"

    Good luck

    PS
    I also read you can add other addresess to it like pop and imap. From within the win8 mail app. Possibly try typing "outlook" into the search bar above, there may be a tutorial
