8.1 Mail app w/out MS account
Don't believe I am the first to ask but could not find an appropriate thread.
I am brand new to 8.1 coming from win 7. Setting up up a new machine.
trying to do email but can't see how to do so without a MS account. Want to keep all my email accounts local.
I do not have have 8.1 pro so I am unable to use the group policy workaround.
How can I set up Win Live mail without involving MS?

After some googling I switched from WLM to Mozilla Thunderbird which I am very pleased with.
Have also set up Thunderbird for many customers during the past several years, with few problems.Computer Consultant/Technician since 1998 (first PC was Atari 1040STE in 1988).
