    While I am on hotmail.com I have set up the "sending email from other account" such that the receiver can see the sender as xxx@aaa.com instead of xxx@hotmail.com. However the Surface RT mail app does not support this.

    Is there a trick or fix I can do this?

    Sadly no. That is something that I have looked for two weeks now and nothing. It is something that is pushing me to return it.

    Patience. The day after you return it they'll release a fix or an app. ;)

    Just a question. Why would you want to? I'm not trying to provoke, just trying to understand the problem....

    The trick to enable the ability to use an Alias is to use your Hotmail or Outlook.com online account the same way you'd use the Mail app. From the IE10 UI go to your Hotmail or Outlook.com account (you'll want to use this as the Microsoft account you use to login to the Surface). In IE10 UI you will want to pin that webpage to the Start screen (the Tile will say Hotmail for Hotmail accounts and Outlook for Outlook.com accounts), If you also save it to Favorites you can then drag it out of IE10 Favorites in the Desktop which creates a shortcut to it there (the Shortcut will say Hotmail or Outlook and your email user name).

    To be on the safe side be sure to add the Outlook.com account to the Mail app, so you are extra sure all the Microsoft apps will sync up. The access to the People, Messaging, Calendar and SkyDrive apps are far easier within the Outlook Tile than the Mail app. If you are using the Hotmail or Outlook.com Tile exclusively for email, the Mail app can be unpinned from the Start screen (you can always add it back to the Start screen later, if desired).

    You need to provide a lot more detail - what other account, is that the account the email was sent from? How was it set up in Outlook.com? At which account is email stuck in the Outbox?

    The trick to IMAP is the outgoing server (which is SMTP) has to have SSL security checked (so your provider needs to offer SSL) It does not work with unsecured mail on the outgoing server. I went round and round with MS on this when I first got my surface. Still want POP3 too since my personal email account doesn not have an IMAP option.

    @guitar1969, did MS tell you why there is a checkbox on Require SSL when it doesn't work without SSL anyway? Looks like a bug to me? My Nokia E72 can send an email for crying out loud.

    It is a bug they are working on. They have had me send files to them from my Surface but I gave up on them and just started using SSL and then workarounds on my other email accounts. I am more frustrated at the lack of POP3 support.

    Sending without SSL works on my Windows 8, so I'm anxious to see what my Surface RT will do, and if it behaves like what you said, damn! :D
