    General mail failure, quit excel and restart the mail system..


    So i've been troubleshooting this for a long while now, but we use office 2007 in windows 10.. i say we since i work for a company that would have to put a lot of money and time into upgrading office so that's not an option. but we get this in a fresh install of excel (diagnostic tool doesn't find anything either) on any windows 10 pc within our network. so.. i've already figured out part of the problem; when using the administrator account from win10 i get the same error BUT when i install and configure outlook to connect to our mailserver etc. the error disappears and it is able to use some kind of redirect from outlook into our own mail client called groupwise.

    so a quick sum up: excel sendmail works in admin account when "properly" configured and is able to use mailto protocol from groupwise to send/receive mails and access contacts etc. But gives an error on regular user accounts

    Now i've tried literally any tutorial i could find through google for fixing this error, but it seems like it's a permission error that somehow only exists on our computers? I haven't found anyone with the same error msg on the internet that also states it's functional on an admin account."" like me. so if anyone knows how to further debug the application and help me; or know what files/folders might need their permissions changed plz help *cry i'd greatly appreciate it *Wink

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. General mail failure, quit excel and restart the mail system.. :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
