Setting up email with windows 8.1

Craig Holder

Hi I am trying to set up my work email accounts on the mail app in Windows 8.1 preview. Does anyone know if its compatible to do this as everytime I try its telling me email address is wrong. Im guessing its just not connecting with the server, I have got all the server details from my host and still it doesn't work. Can anyone help?

You might want to check the Windows 8 support page:

 I’m not sure what is causing your problem. I looked around a little to see if I could find anyone experiencing similar issues. The best I could do is find a discussion on technet where someone else was having problems getting Mail App to connect to hosted email via IMAP. You already addressed the server setting details, which would have been my guess, but it might be worth going over them again just to make sure they match. Sorry not to have a better comprehensive answer for you, but perhaps this can set you on the right track. Good luck!
