I don’t have an Outlook, Yahoo etc email account, nor do I want to change my email service. I use Verizon mail.
How do I configure the Windows 8 Mail icon on the Start screen to my Verizon email account?

    Unfortunately, iut seems that Windows 8 Mail does not support POP3 (see this article) and Verizon does not offer any service other than POP3 (see their support page), so you can't use them together.

    Microsoft suggest using Outlook.com as an intermediary or you could use a different email client (e.g. Thunderbird).
