    Mail app not working properly.


    After 3 or 4 years of working perfectly fine, my Mail app on Windows 10 has suddenly stopped working properly a few days ago. Initially it wouldn't stay open and would shut down soon after I opened it. Now it will open and will download my e-mails and I can see the list of e-mails I have received but if I click on one, I can't read it. Sometimes clicking on an e-mail to try and read it, will make the mail app shut down altogether. I also can't send e-mails at all. I have tried everything I can think of to solve the issue - reset the app, changed sync settings, removed my e-mail accounts and re-added them and explored troubleshooting etc. but nothing seems to work. When the Mail app is open it seems that my laptop goes into overdrive and makes all sorts of noises, which stop once I close the app again. This problem with my Mail app has only occurred recently and I can't think of anything that could have caused it. Can anyone offer any suggestions to resolve the issue that I haven't tried already?

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Mail app not working properly. :)

    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)

    Hey Shawn,
    I did that to no avail, then I ran WSReset.exe; now I'm good on all 3, Mail, Calendar and People! *Confused
    Go figure!

    Windows 10: Mail App is not working properly.

    Hi Eddie,



    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.



    I suggest you to follow the steps below to

    • When you say that "mail ending in outlook.com", have you configured new Oultook.com
    • How many account are configured in the Mail app?
    • Is the email address in the Mail app as same as Microsoft Account with which you have logged in?
    • Are you logged in as Microsoft Account or Local Account?
    • When you say that "my old mail from this account", have you configured as POP 3 or IMAP account in the Windows Live Mail?



    Please get back to us with an update on issue with sending and receiving emails through Mail app, we will be happy to help.



    Thank you.
