Windows 8 mail app does not work with Outlook Account


  • I have tried many times (several hours of attempts and internet searches) over the last 4 days trying to setup Windows 8 Mail app on a new Lenovo laptop (bought 4 days ago).

    I have filled out the "more detail" screen on the MAIL APP setup of an Outlook account and I still get an error.  Our server is running Exchange 2010.  I have downloaded our certificate through Windows Explorer several times.  I can use the Remote Desktop app on the Windows 8 machine.

    What is extremely disappointing is that I used the same setup information on my iPad (1 year ago) and my Android phone (2 years ago) and got both of them working in under 10 minutes.

    FYI - we do not use autodiscover

    Very frustrating and disappointing.

    Is this a known bug?
