    Problems with the email app in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for the update and I apologize for the delay in response.

    I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the Mail app and configure the account again. Please follow the steps to uninstall the mail app.

    Please follow the following steps:

      • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
      • Click File > Run New Task
      • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
      • Type Powershell.
      • This will open a new powershell.
      • Type the following get-appxpackage *microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps*

        | remove-appxpackage
    After performing uninstallation, I suggest you to reinstall the app from Windows store and check if it helps.

    Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
