    I'm unable to add an email in Windwos 10's "Mail" app


    I already have 3 emails in there but I can't add a 4th one (it gets stuck at the moment after I typed the email and password info and then the pop up starts processing the result. It shows a message "creating account" but nothing further happens. No new account is added to the inbox.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. I'm unable to add an email in Windwos 10's  "Mail" app :)

    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)
