Will windows 8 mail metro app support pop and imap accounts.

I have a .sc.rr.com which is a pop3 account and I was wondering if the metro mail app will support them. If they don't, I can go with outlook. And also, how do I add an email account to the windows 8 mail metro app.

Hey Mikey,


Below is a quote from a recent Building Windows 8 article that focuses on the Mail app in regards to support for other protocols in the Mail app:

The use of standard protocols such as Exchange Active Sync as implemented in the Mail app are increasingly important, especially because this protocol allows for syncing of contacts and calendar, in addition to mail. (Don’t worry, support for other protocols, such as IMAP, are on the way.)

For reference and more information please see: Building Windows 8 - Building the Mail app
