    E-mail app and the search for old mails


    Hello!I have a new computer with Windows 8 and a minor problem that I hope can be easily worked out.The problem is that when we open an old Hotmail-account with the E-mail app, the app hides all mails that are older than two weeks, and as I am very unfamiliar with Windows 8, I haven't been able to find the way to change that setting... Would be greatful for some help!Thank you for reading! Mikael

    open up the mail app > bring up the charms bar > go to Settings > go to accounts > select the email account > change setting.

    remember, Settings in the charm bar opens up the settings for the app that is in focus (whatever app is currently opened).
