Windows 8 logoYesterday I described how to set up syncing Gmail in Windows 8 and RT mail app because Google cancelled the support of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync for new subscribers and for new devices on January 30, 2013 (for Windows Phones on July 31, 2013). Now you’ve got to use IMAP for emails, CalDAV for calendars and CardDav for contacts. Right now Microsoft does not support neither the pushing function of IMAP, nor CalDAV and CardDAV.

Now you’ve got to use IMAP for emails, CalDAV for calendars and CardDav for contacts.  Therefore, setting up Gmail with Windows 8 Mail App (or Windows RT Mail App) is not as comfortable as it was and, further more, a little bit tricky: You have to set it up correctly to get the sync working properly.

Windows 8 logoA couple of weeks ago I reported how to set up iCloud email in Windows 8 mail app. A reader of miApple.me, Lesane, asked where emails, which were sent in Windows 8 mail app or Windows Phone 7 or 8 mail app, could be find on the iPhone or iPad. At first, I wondered myself, but the first idea where to find it is wrong: You will not find your email in the ‘Sent’ folder!

Update: Windows Phone 8.1: Setting Up iCloud Email, Calendars And Contacts
iCloud logoIn November I blogged about ‘Setting Up iCloud Calendar in Windows 8 Mail App‘. This could be applied to a Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8, too. But a reader of my blog, Luca, reported problems in adding iCloud calendar to his ‘Windows Live’. I checked my ‘Windows Live / Outlook.com’ account and got the same issue. I got a look into my iCloud subscription in my Google calendar, too, and tried to add my iCloud calendar, but I failed.

Update: How To Sync iCloud Calendar With Windows 10 Calendar App
Windows 8 logoSome days ago I describe a solution to set up iCloud email in Windows 8 mail app. Setting up the iCloud calendar in Windows 8 mail app is not that easy and only ‘read only’ is possible. The solution is to subscribe to your own iCloud calendar in your outlook.com or Windows Live account. Syncing Google Calendar (Gmail) with Windows 8 mail app via ‘read only’ is also possible: Setting Up Google Calendar Syncing In Windows 8 Calendar App.
