    If you use you MS Account for to log on to Windows 8, you'll have that problem because all you MS accounts related will be open. The workaround is to create an Local Account on your Windows 8 Machine with an new log on. If you do that, you could not access Windows Store from that local account anbd maybe some other features will not work too.

    I use my MS hotmail account for my win 8 account
    I can use the windows 8 mail and still log in to my hotmail email account from other pc's even when windows 8 mail is open
    So that cant be the problem as I need no workaround

    vymrdal is right, the problem is Mail Provider related. Such problem we having in Thailand if an Mail-Account from ISP is used. I use my own Mail Server's so that problem didn't exist for me. I had come around that within the last few month as customers were starting to Use Windows 8 and the W8 Mail. It must not happen by any Mail Provider's, just some.
