Why can't I use mail with windows 8? I can only use classic mail.

Re: mail

I was using mail on my old computer with windows 7. The old computer died and I bought a new one with windows 8. I tried the windows 8 mail but there are too many issues and it is not user friendly, ie, cannot flag mail, cannot add contacts without adding a new folder,  etc. I am using mail on the desktop but it is not opening and giving me the option to view my mail with classic mail. I don't think the mail is compatible with windows 8 yet. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

emails being auto deleted

I have an email.  Just recently my emails are being deleted automatically and they are not going to trash.  If I don't login one day, that day will not be in my inbox. What is going on?
