Even though the Mail app is not as powerful as Outlook or Windows Live Mail, it does the job very well. There are some basic features missing from this version of the Mail app. For instance, you can’t directly print a mail from the app and you can’t even add an account using POP or IMAP. To print an email, you need to copy the contents of the mail to your Notepad, Office or any other other applications and then use print feature of the application to print your email. Microsoft will definitely improve this app in coming months.
