Setup Centurylink.net, Embarqmail.com Email on Windows 8
Since the Windows 8 email client does not support 3rd party POP3 email accounts like Centurylink offers, here are 2 ways to view your email:
- 1. CenturyLink Webmail is the quickest most reliable way to access your email from any device with internet access.
- 2*. Microsoft does offer 'Windows Live Mail', an email client that supports 3rd party POP3 email like CenturyLink. 'Windows Live Mail' is one of several software downloads offered by Microsoft's free software suite, Windows Essentials. If you decide to download and install 'Windows Live Mail' you can learn how to configure email software here.
