  1. Mail by Microsoft Corporation?


    So I was checking what apps were connected to my GMail account and saw this:



    Mail by Microsoft Corporation? [​IMG]



    I have one from Mail by Microsoft Corporation and another from Windows. They seem to be nearly the same thing. Are they? Should I get rid of one?

    :)

    Microsoft account was not detected by Outlook Mail, Outlook Calendar, and People apps, causing People app to crash

    Contacted MS and the new update will address the issue. Thanks

    I would say the top one is the mail app and the bottom one is for contacts (People) and calendar, I know it says that right there but they are different apps on windows.

    Mail, People, Calendar are separate apps. So you are getting those entries, The top one is the Mail app, the bottom one is using all three.

    When you added your gmail account I'm sure you saw something like this,

    Yeah, it looks like it's all connected. So I would have to say yes.

    I don't use the mail app myself but they are there because you agreed to let them access those.

    Mail by Microsoft Corporation?

    Possum2009:

    There is no product released by Microsoft known as Mail by Microsoft Corporation. Did you connect to Gmail using Windows 8 Mail App?

    It is reported:

    Source: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...a-4b892d8d7b90

    This implied that you have connected to your Gmail account using Windows 8 Mail App!

  10. Oh, Heck! I accidentally removed both of them! That won't affect my Microsoft account will it? I just need to setup Gmail through the mail app again right?

    Not sure how you came to that conclusion. Is there a reason you want to remove it? You must have purposely linked your gmail to the app.

    That wont affect your Microsoft account, just set up your gmail again.

    Just because there is no product by that name it is clearly the mail app that you setup to use with your gmail.

  12. I no longer have a Windows 8 laptop. Got a new Windows 10 laptop, so I don't think I needed the top one anymore.

    And I set up my mail through the Mail app on the Win10 laptop and the bottom on showed up again.

    I shouldn't need the top one if I'm using Windows 10 mail app which is the bottom one, right?

    Mail by Microsoft Corporation?

    Just because that other information related to Win 8 doesn't mean it won't apply to 10 as well, they both use mail apps so it stands to reason that they would both be recognized as "Mail by Microsoft Corporation" by Google.

    I would think the top one is more important than the bottom one, it is mainly for mail. The bottom one is using all three.

    I still don't know why you want to remove it when I pointed out they were all part of adding gmail to the app.

    Try and remove one and see if it still works, you can just redo it if it doesn't.

  14. Removed both then set up Gmail through the mail app again, only bottom one showed back up. So the top one is for Win8 only I think.

    Ah, I guess it was a holdover from your previous laptop. Well we both learned something then. *Smile
