Microsoft has worked on the Mail app for touch, making it easy to select one or more messages by using checkboxes in the message list. Microsoft said that the entire app has been optimized for use on a tablet, keeping in mind that e-mail is one of the key consumer activities performed on a tablet.

Mobile Priorities

"When we began working on the Mail app for Windows 8.1, we had a lot of customer feedback to consider. We also recognized that people use e-mail today in many different ways than they have in the past, and that the e-mail service you use can make all the difference," Knox said in the post. "For us, that meant ensuring that the Mail app truly takes advantage of the Outlook.com service." (Outlook.com mobile usage has tripled in the last year.)

The Mail app allows you to drag/drop messages into folders. Mail also has options for customization on how messages are sorted. Expect a new "Power Pane" to the left side of the Mail app that can showcase messages by type and create customized views of the email. The Mail app can also showcase the people you communicate with frequently; newsletters get their own special folder as an option, but users who balk at separations can also drag the messages back into the inbox.

Also, expect to see a mail feature that makes it simple to set up, monitor, and toggle between different e-mail accounts. "In a world of mobile devices like tablets, there's an increasingly narrow distinction between your 'work computer' and your 'personal computer,'" said Knox on Thursday. "More and more people are bringing their personal tablets to work, and their work laptops home."
