    Windows 10 Mail, changing contact in people app not reflected in mail


    Hello everyone,

    My problem is that I have a contact with the wrong name. Lets say "Jane" and I have hundreds of emails from that address, but now I want to change her name to be correct.
    If I go to people app, find the profile and change the name, the change is not reflected in mail
    If I go to people app, delete the contact, and make a new one, the old Jane contact still pops up in Autofill
    If I go to people app, associate the Jane contact with a new one, the old Jane contact still pops up in Autofill

    I turned off Auto-add recent contacts in settings, I went to control panel and reset the mail app to default settings, and I tried editing the Jane contact to not have the email address in it, but nothing will let me create a new contact that is associated with an email (that has been emailing me for years) it just keeps remembering the deleted contact.

    :)

  2. Live Mail - delete contacts


    Windows Live Mail syncs with People contacts, but only if you are logged in on Windows Live Mail. Changes made while not logged in appear to never be synced. The 'People' contacts are stored on Microsoft servers, for use by the People app, people.live.com, and syncing with Windows Live Mail (when logged into it). Syncing seems to fail as often as not, so fully back up all contacts lists before culling.

    Cannot delete contacts from Windows 10 Mail App


    Before someone suggests this as an answer, let me just say that I am aware that the Windows 10 Mail app supposedly gets its contacts from the Windows 10 People app. The People app on my computer has the precise contacts in it that it is supposed to. The problem with the Mail app is this: When I type the first letter of a contact's name, and the menu with a selection of contacts to choose from drops down, it includes contacts that I was able to delete from the People app. There does not appear to be any way to get rid of them. Any suggestions?

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Windows 10 Mail, changing contact in people app not reflected in 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)
