Sorry but a lot of the default apps that come with Windows 8 - mail, calendar, address book, app store- won't even let you past the start screen if you don't log in with a Windows ID. Even if you want to use the default Mail app for a non-Hotmail account you need to log in with a Windows ID. Not only that, but Windows 8 pushes you to use your Windows ID as your login for your user account.
