    Default Email client

    What are people finding the best email program to use with W8? Outlook, as installed seems to hopeless after OE6. Any suggestions?

    I'm using Outlook 2013 on my desktop and the bundled mail client on my Surface Pro.

    Stick with outlook if you have it. Its the easiest to migrate from old PC to new .

    Outlook is still the best mail client, imo. How can you possibly think OE6 is better? :x

    Initial problem was trying to set up a Microsoft account. Don't know why this is necessary. Next was trying to understand the general layout of the Outlook window, but I think I have got this sussed. I have now though ended up with two Mail tiles, one called Outlook and one called Orcon! I'll probably leave both there for a while just in case.

    I'd have to agree, 2013 seems a bit of a mess , compared to the older versions. & yep, just doing a import from an old PST now often creates that 2nd UNWANTED mail folder. Just right click that folder & press close
    I dont know why MS have started to try & trick/confuse people into thinking they need to sign up with an MS a/c for win8 & Office . No excuse for that at all MS .
    If you have the retail version of Office/Outlook, you dont need to sign up with MS . Office365 may be different
