Windows 8 Mail is the new native email desktop client of Windows. And, looking at the interface and features I would say that it isn’t a bad choice if you are not looking at doing complicated things. Well, if you plan to use or are already using the application you should know how to add email services to it. We have discussed how to do that for Gmail. Others, can be configured in a similar manner.
Now, when you add an email account it is given the name of the service it belongs to. For instance, I have Outlook mail configured and it shows the name as Outlook.
That should be fine if you are adding a single account or accounts from different services. But, if you add multiple accounts from the same service it may create some confusion for the user. So, the idea is to rename the accounts to make them more distinguishable from each other.
My first experience with the Mail app has been pretty decent. It is simple, comprehensive and contains only as much as may be required for basic emailing purposes. While we explore more of it, we will share with you our experiences and ways to make things simpler and better.
Meanwhile, if you are a Windows 8 user who’s been using the Mail app for a while then share with us any tricks and workarounds that you may have discovered and feel that it could be helpful.
