  1. Maybe the windows 8 mail app only works with windows' own e-mail service (hotmail or live) and not with google's (gmail)

    I doubt it. I use the Windows Live mail client and it works with gmail just fine. Then again Microsoft even dropped DVD support for windows media player under windows 8, so it would not surprise me if they locked out gmail from their email client.

    It worked perfectly before and as I see on the internet many people have the same problem and many solved this.
