  1. Search function in mail app not working


    Worked fine until today. Tried troubleshooter, tried reset account, tried uninstall and re-install.. no joy

    Search icon just spins forever and no results appear. Can send and receive mail as normal.

    Anyone else seeing this? Any ideas?

    Many thanks in advance

    :)

  2. Crucial: Whats wrong with Mail App Search Function

    thanks for your suggestion, and no, the windows search index was not the problem. it's the mail app that does not work as expected:

    expected behavior:

    1. type a keyword
    2. return search results containing that keyword

    observed behavior:

    1. type a keyword
    2. no results
    3. search online
    4. still no results and no error msg

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Search function in mail app not working :)

    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)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    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!
