    I can't connect to Exchange Activesync anymore. GG Microsoft...... (I'm the Exchange admin at my company BTW, not Joe blow user) Not a good start to the "Preview"

    Same here. Haven't launched Outlook yet, but my exchange, work email said it needed a password. I put the password in and it says it cant connect.

    Install at your own risk. That's why I'm using a test laptop.

    Yeah I can't get the Metro email app to send regular Outlook emails.

    So far I haven't noticed anything broken. I'm liking the new Live tile size.

    I've installed it on my RT Device and have added all 3 email accounts, 2 Exchange (O365) and one IMAP and all work flawlessly...

    I installed 8.1 on my RT, but not going to update my wife's. I don't see enough features to warrant the risk.

    The new Start is a big fail in my opinion.

    RS - What about the Start is a fail? I have the same background on my Start Screen as I do on my desktop and the All App view is easy to get too...
