    Mail app on Windows 10 stopped fetching new emails automatically


    Hi there.
    I've used Windows 10 for 2 year without any problems until today. My mail app has stopped fetching new mail automatically, only working if i manually ask it to sync my mails.
    I've tried resetting the app through the setting menu and I thought it was working again. Howerer, it looks like my account gets deleted by the mail calendar app everytime i restart or shut down my computer.
    Any one knows how to fix this ? Thanks in advance

    :)

    Need to re-enter Hotmail account details for Microsoft Mail and Calender app often

    This is very odd. The reset option is supposed to fix these kind of errors, but they keep coming. Did your account stopped to fetch new mails automatically as well ? That was the reason for me to reset the app and start this whole mess now.

  3. How to set Outlook 2016 as the default mail program

    I already went into Default apps setting, and verified that my default email is set to Outlook 2016.

    But that doesn't solve the problem. The Windows 10 Mail is still working and fetching email automatically.

    I want to STOP that.

  6. I had this issue for a while now. I tried what you did too. It eventually spiraled from not auto syncing mail to randomly losing my 2 hotmail addresses, oddly it leaves my Gmail address alone. I eventually found this guide to uninstalling windows components through the PowerShell. How to uninstall default apps in Windows 10 - CNET
    I used the command line Get-AppxPackage *windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage to uninstall the Mail and Calendar apps. Then I went to the Microsoft store and reinstalled and set up the Mail and Calendar apps from there. It's only been a day but so far it has been working fine again.
