How to Add Outlook.com Email Account in Windows 8

Outlook.com is now more than one week old and I have already published a lot of articles and tutorials on this blog about Microsoft Outlook email service. I am trying to cover every part of the new Outlook.com service to familiarize its users with all its features and benefits. In this article, you will learn about how you can configure Outlook.com email account into Windows 8. As we know, Windows 8 comes with Metro Apps and has a built-in Email Client Metro App to read emails directly on Windows 8 without installing any third party email client software or online browser. It is extremely easy to configure your Outlook.com account with Windows 8 if you follow all the instructions given below step by step.

1. To configure your Outlook.com email account in Windows 8, go to Metro Wall and select People App. Before you configure or add Outlook.com, make sure you have configured your Microsoft account in Windows 8. If you have not configured your Microsoft account on Windows 8 system then you can directly enter your Outlook.com email address and password into the Metro Mail app and your account will be configured automatically. Otherwise, go on to step 2 and follow the rest of the instructions.

2. In People App, click on the small blue color ‘M’ icon then on the Add an account option.
