    Email addresses in People app does not open up in the mail app

    I have windows 10. Previously in the people app when you clicked on a persons email you had the option to open the email in the mail app. Now when I click on any persons email whether it is gmail or outlook et al, it no longer gives me a choice to open in the mail app.... rather it just opens up my browser. This is for every email address I have in the people app. One more thing for your clarification. The mail app is synced with the people app because when I insert a name in the "to" box, the email addresses from the contact list show up as options. So I don't think this is a syncing issue. The problem is that you can't use the people app to email anyone because all it does is open up a browser when you click on the emaill address in the people app. Any Suggestions?

    Email addresses in People app does not open up in the mail app

    The Mail App and People App have had recent updates.

    The People App here lost all contacts on mine, and settings > accounts had to be redone. That got them back fortunately.

    Actually what you mention does work here (bit of a surprise there....).
    It comes up with "Choose which account to send the Email from", then you choose which account and the Mail App opens up appropriately.

    So, I would go through your People App settings as using Webmail(Internet email) is an option in Advanced Setup.
    People App > Settings cog > + Add an Account > Advanced Setup.

    It is very confusing. On mine only 3 accounts are listed, but the choose list has all 6 Accounts, hmmm.... what an MS mess up.

    Microsoft mail app showing other peoples emails.

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Microsoft mail app showing other peoples emails. :)

    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)
