Windows 8: Setting up Email

We know you're excited to get your email set up on Microsoft Windows® 8. We should have it working in about 5 minutes. These steps work for most of our customers, but sometimes you might need to make some additional changes depending on where you live and which ISPs you use.

BEFORE YOU START: To set up Windows 8 with your email, you need to know your IMAP Email Server Settings and ports. To find them, go to the Email Setup Center and write down the information that displays under Email Server Settings.

Windows 8 currently doesn't support POP3 email accounts. To change your email account, see Changing From POP to IMAP.
