  1. Remove Microsoft Mail

    Hi. I have a Windows 10 Pro edition pc with two users: Admin and Visitor. I need to disable Microsoft Mail - at least for the Visitor user. I have used this command with Powershell to remove the app from the Admin user:
    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps | Remove-AppxPackage

    It works fine and removes Mail from the Admin user. However, the Mail app is still available for the Visitor user. No matter what I try, the Mail app still shows on the start menu just for the Visitor.

    Any idea how I can remove the Mail app from that particular user or all users? Thank you in advance.

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Remove Microsoft Mail :)

    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)

    Hey Shawn,
    I did that to no avail, then I ran WSReset.exe; now I'm good on all 3, Mail, Calendar and People! *Confused
    Go figure!

    Remove Microsoft Mail

    Cannot open mail app settings

    OK, my next suggestion was going to be uninstalling Mail and Calendar and reinstalling from the Windows Store. You can have a go at this by following these steps.

    1. Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell.
    2. Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    3. Enter the below command to remove the Mail and calendar app.

    get-appxpackage *microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps* | remove-appxpackage

    After performing the above steps, install the Mail and calendar app from the Windows Store.

    Hope this helps, you will, of course, have to add you accounts back again.
