We first used Hotmail, then switched to Gmail. Now we have a new computer Windows 8 64bit, and want to try Outlook.com email (to us pensioners new to these machines) as it does not look as complicated to use. So we signed up, received email from team all OK and welcome, made it our primary address and set up a GMail alias, thinking GMail received would show up in Outlook, but no – each time we press mail, GMail appears. Why? What are we not doing, and some of the questions asked we have’nt a clue – like POP and SMTP or whatever. Thinking of going back to pen and ink, you know, the one with a feather in the end !!.
