comment How to display Outlook 2013 notifications on Windows 8 lock screen
Sorry for not responding earlier. I think we should keep the discussion here, that way it's easier for others to chime in and maybe offer a solution. Also, I'm afraid I've little time to actively participate in a chat. We can always clean up the comment thread later if we find a solution or at least manage to narrow down the problem.

To manually download new messages, right-click anywhere in the app (or click on the "..." at the bottom right) to expand the app bar, then click More -> Sync. Alternatively, just hit F5 like you would in a browser. Anyway, does the Mail app actually download new emails? If yes, how long are you waiting to see if something shows up on the lock screen? "As items arrive" means the app uses push notifications, which should be pretty much instant, but there may be a limit to how often the app can update the lock screen.

Check that the "Show email notifications" option is set to "All email". I think by default it's "Only from favourites". As for downloading older email, check what the "Download email from" option is set to.

Looks like you're going to PC Settings. Make sure to press Win+C while in the Mail app. The settings should open in a sidebar on the right-hand side, not take you out of the Mail app.

As far as I know, only Modern/Metro apps (like Mail) can show notifications on the lock screen. Desktop apps like Outlook 2013 cannot. You'll need to set up your email account in the Mail app so it can check for new emails and show notifications. Are you logging into Windows with a Microsoft account, or a local account? Are you using Outlook.com/Hotmail or another email provider? What accounts are already set up in the Mail app (Win+C, Settings -> Accounts)?
