Username or EmailPassword
How in the name of fcuk do you configure a Gmail/Apps account in Mail/People/etc.? Everyone says you can, but this thing insists I use a Microsoft account.
I had to setup the mail app with my Hotmail account before I was able to get the option to setup gmail or outlook.
Right. Now my Mail, People and so on applications are all in German instead of English (and my account is Dutch wtflol?). What a massive clusterfcuk, this. Why can't I just sign into Facebook and GMail without all this linking bullshit? The linking doesn't even work, even though it says it does. In German.
How can they make something so simple THIS complicated?
I just gave it my gmail addy and password ... worked fine.
Hmmm, doesn't sound good to me. One would think it would work like WP7, put in your email address and password and POOF! account setup done and syncing. WP7 even pulled in my personal email account hosted by the small web hosting service I use.
Maybe it's just one of those billion things that will be fixed before launch. I remember getting frustrated over and over with the Windows 7 Preview before I chilled and realized that even as broken as it was, it was still more stable than Vista. I'm bound to repeat that experience with this one.
