    Mail App- Adding other e-mail addresses to the app


    I was setting up the mail app that came with Windows 8, adding the e-mail addresses I wanted the app to access. After adding my Yahoo Mail address, the app went straight to my Yahoo Mail, and gave me a fleeting message, stating something like:

    If you wish to add other email addresses to Mail, you can do so by changing the settings....

    Then the notification disappeared before I could read the rest. I've searched for over an hour and I cannot find where in Windows 8 I am able to add email addresses to the Mail app.

    Can somebody give me a clue?

    Thanks, in advance.

    I was able to find a similar thread with the answer-

    While in Mail App, access the charm bar and go to settings. There will now be a list of settings and options for Mail.
