    I was able to easily set up my yahoo.com email in Window's 8 mail. It sent fine for awhile, but then it stopped. I changed the settings to 'every 15 min.', 'manual' <was orig. set for 'as they arrive'> but nothing seems to be working now. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Thanks!

    Hi Craftgirl,

    have you tried setting up the account again in case settings have become corrupted? Also have you recently installed or un-installed anything that might have an effect?

    Microsoft does have a FAQ web page which may be of some help:

    Mail app for Windows: FAQs - Microsoft Windows Help

    I deleted the account and set it up again from scratch. So far so good. Here's hoping it holds. My next challenge is setting up charter email which is presently a POP account. Wondering if I should just download THUNDERBIRD for that email account.
    Thanks for your suggestion for my email fix. It seemed to work.
