I am running Windows 8 Enterprise in VMware 8.0.3 and the VM has 5GB of RAM.
When I am reading Gmail in the WinRT Mail app, the list of emails and the preview/view pane will frequently disappear completely while it refreshes or something. This may be happening in Hotmail as well, but I use Gmail more frequently.
I thought maybe it was pinging the mail server too often so I modified the settings to:
Download new mail: Every 15 Min
However it is still happening.
It is hard to read email when the screen keeps blanking out while the app refreshes. Does anyone know why this is happening or how to control it?
