  1. Why the text body of a Sent email through Windows 10 default Mail App folder is missing in...


    This happens when I send an email from my gmail address.

    Then when I want to look at it later; I find it in the sent mail folder but the body is blank. However when I login to Gmail online and check the sent folder the email still contains the text. I could attach an example of it there was an attachment utility here.

    Therefore I can only demonstrate this by copy and pasting here the email copies as saved in the sent folder in Windows mail vs the same email I retrieved from the sent folder on Gmail on the browser:

    Hi,



    A few days ago I sent you an inquiry through form mail on your website. I am disappointed that I didn't even get an acknowledgement for my communication.



    Can you please at least acknowledge the receipt of the inquiry and give me a time frame for response. I am concerned that either the device is not functioning properly or I might be missing something.



    Regards and awaiting your response I remain,



    Yours sincerely

    Babak Kamali

    As you can see the body of the email text is not available in Windows.

    Furthermore and more worryingly sometimes the email is not even sent through gmail SMTP server and later on I have noticed that there is no trace of it. 1st few times I thought I had made a mistake but then I kept checking until I found out that there were actually emails that were never sent and no trace of them anywhere as if they were deleted.

    Obviously I can't show you an evidence of it but it definitely happens.

    I have noticed similar but not as comprehensive questions by other users on this topic. I hope this is not Microsoft's way of forcing users to abadon Gmail for the sake of an account in Outlook although I already have a hotmail account with Mircrosoft.

    Can you please fix this because it is really annoying and I have lost several much longer emails than this.

    :)

  2. windows 10 Mail app is not displaying sent body text, or newly sent items since Win10 ver 2004

    When an email is sent using Mail since upgrading to Win 10 ver 2004, Mail is not showing sent items, or displaying body text of previously sent items. This is with Gmail accounts, Hotmail seems OK.

    The app has been both reset and re-installed, with no change.

    Mail app not displaying sent emails in folder


    I've added an IMAP account provided by an institutional server (****@fidas.org). I've checked that sent items are stored correctly when working on Windows Live Mail or from webmail.



    This is not the case with the new Windows 10 metro mail app, sent emails don't show in any of the sent folders I've created.



    I've been struggling with the issue for quite a long time. My mail provider does not know where the issue might be. I believe it is somehow related to the name the windows mail app gives to the folder for sent items. If I knew the exact name of that folder I could create a folder with that name through the webmail page and finally have all of my devices properly sync.

    I've talked to the technical service and they adviced me to switch to another mail provider app. I would prefer not to do that because I like the integration with People and other windows apps.



    Thank you.

    Windows 10 Mail App - Display of Text Associated with Email Sent from Photos/Mail App in iOS

    Hello Louie, and thanks for your follow-up. The image in the email is a jpg photo (I selected both full photo and medium sizes - it makes no difference to the issue). When I go from the iOS Photos app and choose to email a photo, it allows me to provide
    a title and associated text and includes my signature block (created with regular text). When the resultant email is viewed on iOS Mail app or on webmail (from Bell Canada email), the embedded photo and the text and signature are there just fine. But on
    the Windows 10 Mail App, I see in the inbox listing and sent mail listing, the email listed with an attachment paperclip symbol. When I open the email in the Windows 10 Mail App, I see the title, but in the body of the email there is a small version of the
    photo (maybe 1"x1") and nothing below it. (If I click on the small photo image, it will open in the photos app). The text of the email and the signature block are not there in the email. If I go back to the iOS mail app or to webmail and forward the same
    email again, and then look at it in the Windows Mail App, I do see all the text and signature block from the original and any new text I added in the forwarding email. This seems to be only an issue when sending photos directly from email via iOS. But the
    issue is only with the view from the Windows 10 Mail App view of that particular email, not from Bell Canada webmail or iOS Mail App. I somehow believe that this is a relatively new issue, and I believe it is not just my issue, it may be more generic. Thanks,
