@viafax, if I'm not mistaken, Windows Live bundled with Win 8 won't work with POP email. Time for VZ to get with the times. Thus my mail reason for using GMAIL instead of VZ mail. Provides syncro between many devices. (desktop, cell, tablet), delete on one delete on all!!!!
WIndows live is not bundled with Windows 8. Another version if Windows Mail is included. You can still download Windows Essentials 2012 (latest Windows Live Mail) and it will work with POP on windows 8.
