    Adding email addresses to W10 Mail App.


    I have just resurrected an old W10 version 1909 machine for a family member to use for email and browsing. I set up the Mail App for email and she can receive, send and reply to emails just fine. However, if she tries to send a new email she has to type in the complete address in the To field -- cumbersome and prone to typing errors. Is there a way I can set up an address book for a dozen or so different address to avoid this annoyance? My guess it has to with the People app but that is only a SWAG.

    Will someone please guide me through the process to get the Mail App to behave like I would like it to?

    Thank you very much

    :)

    Email addresses in People app does not open up in the mail app

    I have windows 10. Previously in the people app when you clicked on a persons email you had the option to open the email in the mail app. Now when I click on any persons email whether it is gmail or outlook et al, it no longer gives me a choice to open in the mail app.... rather it just opens up my browser. This is for every email address I have in the people app. One more thing for your clarification. The mail app is synced with the people app because when I insert a name in the "to" box, the email addresses from the contact list show up as options. So I don't think this is a syncing issue. The problem is that you can't use the people app to email anyone because all it does is open up a browser when you click on the emaill address in the people app. Any Suggestions?

    Mail App: Removing drop down email address suggestions

    I'm not a big fan of the MS Mail program and don't really use it for serious stuff but somehow or other if I create a new email then as I start to enter the recipients address a whole load of suggestions will appear. I don't have any contacts in the People app so I'm not sure where these come from.

    The question is how can I clear this list so that I no longer get the suggestions?

    Thanks
