    Allow other user to check email.


    This isn't for me as I am the only user, but a friend of mine with Windows 8 is the principal user; however maybe once or twice a week his wife wants to check her Hotmail. Of course with Microsoft taking over Hotmail and linking all to the user; it always defaults to the user's email. I suggested he give her user account and let her sign in to her own account. I think he may be willing to accept that, but would there be any way she could check her mail on his account?
