I guess no one else is having this problem with PSE11 in Windows 8! In sharing preferences, I am only given one option -- Adobe mail. And it won't work. I've used that service before on my work computer running PSE9 and Windows XP. Why don't I get the Windows Mail option? What good is it anyway, sitting there on the start screen and seems to be unavailable otherwise -- I'm usually working from my desktop. I dual boot to Windows XP and have Office 2003 installed there and am able to email photos via Outlook (not express) -- works good. Unfortunately, Office 2003 is not compatible with Win 8 64bit. What do I do now? I saw the tip about downloading and installing Windows Live Mail for Win 7. I thought it was built into Windows 8? Arguablly Windows 8 is a goofy operating system, at least for desktop PCs!
Any help will be greatly appreciated
Thank you Andaleeb! I suppose my difficulties with emailing photos in PSE11 in Win 8 are all due to my lack of understanding and familiarity with Windows 8, after using Win XP for more than 10 years. I followed the link and this one http://forums.adobe.com/message/4931450#4931450 helped me get Adobe Mail Services working with Gmail, which is my preference anyway since I use that for most of my email. I guess I missed the verification code originally. Then for some reason, the send email message form came up off screen to the right. Working good now though.
As for Windows Mail, from your link I believe you are telling me that Windows 8 Mail and Windows Live Mail are not the same thing and that I would need to install Windows Live Mail in the same manner as those running Vista and Windows 7. Correct? I guess Windows start screen "Apps" and installed programs are not the same thing a concept that seems bizarre to me!
Thank you very much!
