Anyone else using the Windows Mail app having issues. Whenever I click on the app, It kicks me back to the Start screen. This has been going on with all three of my Windows 8 devices.
Hope I'm not the only one and that's there's a fix soon.
Can you access the account with a non-windows 8 device? Your phone for example? Maybe via the web? System File check perhaps, the old sfc /scannow?. I mean I am spi-tballing here. I had been using 2010 Pro Plus and then 2013 but I have not relied on the Mail client for some time now. In my experience it was too generic and had real performance issues. I watched it make some progress before I gave it up entirely. Before I reset my surface for the 5th time I had all apps doing the same thing and nothing resolved this for me. All Metro apps were acting the same way, except for the desktop. launch and die or launch and produce white screens that said " The page Failed to load" or that said nothing. All my other Metro Apps were behaving exactly as you describe.
It should be noted that I tried all this on my pro and nothing worked. I was forced to completely reset the device. The Metro Apps now work, but the Firmware issue that actually drove me to FULLY RESET the device remains.

Try these and don't overlook this part : Check if UAC
(User Account Control) is enabled. UAC must be enabled for Metro apps to work. To check, simply type UAC
from the home screen and it will appear on the Settings
search result. I thought that was going to be the magic fix for me, but it wasn't. Kind of annoying that UAC has to be enabled for Metro Apps to work.
