Have been using Microsoft Outlook 2007 with Windows XP for some years. E-mail accounts can be set up manually in Outlook.
Am now trying to move to Windows 8 machine. This does not seem to give the option of setting up e-mail accounts manually - you have to enter addresses of your accounts and then Windows 8 goes off to the internet and retrieves the settings etc for those accounts.
OK in theory no doubt but my Windows 8 cannot find my e-mail accounts (both .freeserve accounts).
Is there any way in Windows 8 that I can overide the default of going on line to be able to enter account details myself ?
