Not sure if I have posted in the correct forum. Host OS : Win 7 SP1 Guest OS : Win 8.1 pro preview in VMware Player. Question : Does Win 8.1 pro preview support POP email accounts? I downloaded WLM ( windows live mail ) 2012, then I configured my Bell.net in it.. It will receive but can't send. I thought it could be a port 25 block, so I changed it to 587, then 576. None works. I was using the same email account settings as in my host OS windows 7 which has my Bell.net account. Looks like it will accept only web-based accounts.
