Open mail from the start screen

With live mail tiles, you can open mail directly from the start screen.

From the tile, you can see the number of unread mails and if you've received new mail. You can also see a short preview of the new mail. If you have several mailboxes, but only one tile for mail, you can see to which mailbox the mail has arrived.

You can pin several mailboxes to the start screen. For example, dedicate a tile for business mail and another for personal mail. In your mailbox, swipe up from the bottom of the screen, and tap manage mail folders icon > Pin to Start.

  1. To read your mail, tap the tile.
