The Windows 8 Mail e-mail app has a nice, clean interface and works with a variety of e-mail accounts, including Gmail and Yahoo! Mail. Here’s how to add them to Windows 8 Mail:

Step 1: Make sure you’re logged in to Mail with a Microsoft account. If you’re using a local account to log in to Windows 8, you’ll need to log in to Mail with a Microsoft account before you can add other e-mail accounts.

Step 2: From within Mail, use the Win+I shortcut to quickly get to Mail settings, then click on Accounts.

Step 3: Click on Add an account, then choose the e-mail provider you want to add.

Step 4: Enter your log-in credentials for the e-mail account you’re adding, then click Connect.

That’s it. What do you think of the Windows 8 Mail app? Do you see yourself using it or are you going to stick with the Web client?
