Windows 8 Mail, Calendar and Messaging App updated

Microsoft is pushing out an update for the Mail, Calendar and Messaging apps in Windows 8.

The changelog notes the following improvements:

Group email messages by conversation to keep your inbox organised.
Respond to meeting invitations directly from your inbox.
Get things done more quickly with faster performance in all apps.
Experience better reliability and usability based on feedback from customers like you.

My experience with the mail app so far has not been great, with limited features and the app completely unable to send email from my main mail account, no matter how I tweak the settings.

The good news is that the email does now actually work.  The bad news is that all the mail that was stuck in my outbox has now suddenly been sent 😉

The mail app does overall also feel much faster. Have our readers noticed any other significant improvements? Let us know below.

Thanks Kamalesh for the tip.
