Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring and using Mail, part of Learning Windows 8.
When you first get started using Windows 8, your impression may be that the live …tiles are really just about changing information, for example, getting updated …news headlines, financial reports, and sports headlines. …For example, you can see that I have the sports application set up as a live tile …so that I get the latest headlines on that tile, actively updating. …And so if there's any new information in the world of sports, I probably will see …it here on that live tile whenever I'm at the start screen. …But live tiles aren't just about updating headlines and other sorts of information.…
And in fact, in many cases, I find the live tiles to be really invaluable. …And I think one of the best examples of that is the mail application. …You'll see that I have an indication of a new email message, in the bottom right corner. …There is the number one, indicating that there is one new mail message for me. …And I even see an indication of what that message contains, who it is from. …It happens to be from myself, because it is just a sample message for our purposes. …
