Specs: Windows 8.1
Why cant I download emails into a new setup on windows 8.1 for my personal email? I recently tried to set up my email to be a shortcut on my desktop and have had no luck... It took a while to establish the Microsoft account and use a code to verify the new account. Once I finally was able to start importing my emails, it did a few then suddenly stopped...

There's no such thing as "Windows 8.1 Outlook".
Do you mean Microsoft Outlook on Windows 8.1?

You may need to restart your computer.

My own - albeit,limited - experience with MS-Office\Outlook when downloading a whole slew of mail from the on-line (pop3) server is that it frequently brings in quite a lot, then stops... Sometimes simply clicking on the download mail or whatever button etc. will restart the stream, sometimes not. Occasionally restarting Outlook will bring in more, sometimes not. I seem to recall (from somewhere) that occasionally pop3/on-line mail system can't or won't deal with a heavy and continuous stream/download of mail from the server(s) and they will simply hang; overloaded as it?

Certainly my experience with Yahoo mail and associated variants supports the latter observation above.
