  1. No option to sync Gmail Calendar with Mail and Calendar app


    I have follow a million different threads with no resolution. I have a gmail account that stopped syncing a couple of days ago. I deleted the account and when I tried to add it back I entered Manage Accounts -> Add Account -> Google and received the following error. No option to sync Gmail Calendar with Mail and Calendar app 151dfafc-0c25-495d-9863-ff0df2d412f5?upload=true.png

    So I used the Add Account -> Other account (POP, IMAP). I am able to see my email and it shows as a gmail account, however when I click on Options for syncing your content I see the following sync options:

    No option to sync Gmail Calendar with Mail and Calendar app 8f35ed7c-16db-42fc-b4ad-e0642b679149?upload=true.png

    I don't even have the option to sync the calendar. I use this computer for work and school so I was using the calendar option to manage my schedule.


    I have made sure all settings in the gmail account are set to IMAP, I have checked the firewall and it allows the Mail and Calendar App and I have reset the Mail and Calendar app a dozen times as well as deleted and re-added the gmail account. Can anyone help me, this is extremely frustrating.

    Google account (mail / calendar) not syncing in Windows 10

    I'm having a problem with the default Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10. For a while I was able to sync my Google account emails (Gmail) and calendar in those apps, but about a week ago, it has stopped working: the calendar is empty (no events, and no calendars listed), and the emails that were already synced are still there, but syncing doesn't bring any new email.

    I tried deleting my Google account from the mail (or calendar) app, by going to "settings -> accounts", and then re-creating the account. I did that three times. Each time I was able to complete the following steps:

    1. enter my Gmail address,
    2. then my Google account password,
    3. then the confirmation code sent by SMS,
    4. and finally got to the screen "Windows would like to..." (permissions listing), on which I clicked "Accept" (obviously).

    The first time, I then got a Windows message "Something went wrong", followed by an error code (I didn't write it down).

    The second time, I didn't get this error message, so it looked like the account was successfully created (it appeared in my accounts list in the settings of those apps), but nothing was synced: both apps (mail / calendar) remained empty. (I tried syncing manually by clicking the sync button in the mail app: still nothing, even though the app confirmed that it was "up to date".)

    For my third attempt, I had found this question, so I went and created an "app password" in my Google account, specifically for those apps. But when I got to the password screen (step 2 described above) and entered this app password instead of my regular account password, I got an error message (from Google) asking me to enter my account password and not an app password. So I did that, and that got me exactly the same result as my second attempt (account created but nothing synced).

    I also tried both answers given on the same question (first via "settings > accounts > add account > Other account", and second via "settings > accounts > add account > Advanced setup"), but none of them worked for me (again, account created but nothing synced).

    Has anyone experienced the same problems? How can I make this work?

    UPDATE: a few months back (early October 2015) I received an email from Microsoft inviting me to "reconnect to Google" (that was the title of the email). I ignored it for a while, but recently followed the steps in this email and now everything seems to be working fine. So I'm guessing that MS somehow fixed whatever bug it was.

  3. Windows Calendar not syncing with Google anymore

    Has anyone been having trouble lately with the Windows Calendar App not syncing with Google?

    I use Mail/Calendar/People synced up to my Gmail account and have had no problem with it for ages. The last few days, Mail started showing a message that my IMAP settings are preventing it from syncing with my Gmail. I checked everything - IMAP enabled for All mail, trash, inbox, etc... and seems all good. Plus Gmail works fine with the e-mail app on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ so I don't think it's on Google's end.

    I ended up deleting and re-adding my Gmail account and then the e-mail is syncing great again, no problems. But now, I can't see any of my Google Calendars in the Calendar App. It shows my Gmail account under the accounts section. Calendar is toggled ON to sync but nothing shows up at all - I just see the Reminders calendar (I use Microsoft To Do app) and nothing else. The Google calendars show up and sync fine on my phone again (Samsung Calendar App) but nothing on my Windows 10 machine.

    I've tried repeatedly deleting and re-adding my Google account. I've tried resetting the Mail/Calendar app in Windows 10. I've removed and reinstalled Mail and Calendar, still nothing. Cleaned temp files, etc.. Disabled Anti-virus (ESET Internet Security). I made the upgrade to 1909 and still no luck.

    I'm at a loss why it would just stop working like this. Any thoughts/advice? Thanks in advance! No option to sync Gmail Calendar with Mail and Calendar app :)
