I purchased a windows 8 computer for my wife at Christmas. I soon realized Shawmail will not work with this operating system. I then set up G-Mail on the computer and had it retrieve all my Shaw Mail. Attachments still won't open. Any suggestions?
Opening email attachments in Windows 8 Mail appears to be a general problem affecting Windows 8 users, Microsoft seems to be aware of this and working on the issue. However, I wanted to confirm that you can set up your Shaw email on Windows 8. You will find setup instructions for this here, so just let us know if you have any problems setting this up:
Windows 8 Mail
So you are using Windows 8 with GMail and your attachments won't open?
Just to confirm I have this correct.
I have Windows 8 and use Windows Live Mail connected to Shawmail and it seems to work OK.
Correct. The attachments don't even show up on the e-mail. If I go directly to g-mail the attachments show up, but not in Windows mail.
I know there was an issue with email in Windows 8
Can you try a differnet email client?
Is there one you recommend?
