    Internet connection problem.

    Try have a restart of your system, and see if your email works. if not, please redo the configuration

    hey Revans310,

    For Metro apps problems, check the following:

    -You need at least 1024X768 resolution for Metro apps to work.
    -Confirm if the issue reproduces with all user accounts. Metro apps aren’t supported if you are running with a built-in administrator account (happens mostly when upgrading).
    -Check if UAC (User Account Control) is enabled. UAC must be enabled for Metro apps to work. To check, simply type UAC from the home screen and it will appear on the Settings search result.
    -Try using a local account instead of a Microsoft account(Live ID).
    -Refresh your PC.

    The Metro apps are the most unfinished portions of Win 8 CP. You might not get them working properly at this time. The Win 8 RP is expected in early June. Hopefully these apps will be further along at that time.

    If you originally elected to NOT use a Windows Live account to set up your BETA TEST VERSION of Win-8, there are many things that will not work.

    I have NO Windows Live anything. So almost none of the Metro apps work for me. I just unpin them from the start screen and then I don't have to put up with them taking up space. Works for Me! (quote, Dirty Harry)
