    Microsoft thinks I'm using Windows 8 - email to my MSA

    I've spared you the images - I'm sure we all know what Windows 8 looked like! Here's the text of the email Microsoft sent me today:

    Meet the new Windows
    From: Windows (windows@communication.microsoft.com)
    To: Fafhrd@myMSA

    Get to know the new Windows

    Welcome to the getting started series

    Each email in this series will help you get familiar with the new features, apps and settings in Windows 8.1. In this first email, we’ll go over the basics.

    Your Start screen

    Right from your Start screen, you are one click or tap away from search or shutdown. Whether it’s checking in on your friends, viewing websites and files or just using your favourite apps, everything you want to do on your device is available from the Start screen.

    Your Start screen

    Helpful tip: Easily get to the familiar desktop or go directly to the taskbar where you can pin your favourite apps for easy access. The familiar taskbar makes it easier to open or switch between apps.

    Live Tiles

    The tiles on your Start screen make it easy to see emails, calendar appointments, social posts and even the weather without opening a single app.

    Live Tiles

    Helpful tip: You can quickly see every app on your device by sliding up from the middle of your Start screen (or clicking the down arrow near the lower-left corner of Start).

    Search, share, print and more

    Charms help you easily do the things you do most often, like search, share links and photos, connect other devices and change settings. To view them, just swipe in from the right edge of your screen (or point with your mouse to the lower-right corner).

    Know your charms

    Helpful tip: You can always get back to your Start screen simply by touching or clicking the Start charm . And, if you're already on your Start screen, the Start charm will take you back to the last app you used.

W 10 and POP email
Does anyone know if W 10 will allow POP email, W 8.1 does not. I can change my Cox email to Imap, but it is a real hassle and I don't want to if W 10 will use it.
