  1. Windows 10 Mail Client


    I've noticed after trying the Win 10 Email client to access my hotmail accounts, if somebody attaches a picture to one of the emails and I download that attachment, the resulting file is marked as "READ ONLY". Yet if I download the file while logged on to the outlook server, or use ThunderBird to download the attachment, the resulting file is NOT marked as "READ ONLY" ?

    Does anybody have any ideas on how to stop the Win 10 Email client from creating "Read Only" files ?

    :)

    Why Windows Mail are moving the "send mails" to the wrong folder?

    Sorry guys, the information I provided was misleading

    By Windows Mail, I'm referring to the Mail client that come with Windows 10 (Metro UI Mail), not the Mail client provided by the Windows Live suite

    Cannot send email attachments using windows 10

    I'm using two mail clients, @vodamail.co.za and @gmail.com and have been using them for many years without any problems. I'm having the same problem in windows 10 with both e-mail adresses in all these mail apps - windows 10 Mail, Mozilla thunderbird as
    well as Mailbird 10

    Does not matter what the size of the attachments are cannot the smallest for eg 10kb cannot be send from windows mail and no attachments can be attached when I go straight onto the mail clients via internet.

    This is not a mail client problem as I'm using my old computer with windows 7 to send the e-mails with attachments from both mail clients without any problems.

    To prove that it is a windows 10 problem I did "PowerShell cmdlet, Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}" and this fixed the problem for that login but as soon as
    I restart my computer the problem is back.

    Please look into this problem ASAP.

    I see on the MS forum that many windows 10 Clients are having similar issues and you refer them to their mail clients without any luck. Please get an update to fix this issue for all the frustrated windows 10 Clients.

    Regards

    Marinda

    you might try going to the settings/reading of Mail and try turning the "Image Preview" selection off. Not sure if this will do it on Windows Mail

    Hi there. I'm running the same OS build and AV as you have listed. Not quite sure of your question so far as downloading, but I cannot duplicate your problem. I sign into 10 with MS account.

    If I open Windows 10 Mail app I'm connected to the server and can sync at any time. If I'm on Outlook.com I'm "in" the server. Any which way I download or save an attachment it is open for editing, not read only, hidden, nor blocked as seen here.

    I have > Windows Mail app > Settings > Reading > External content > Automatically download external images and style formats > Turned on. I only have Outlook accounts, so you may want to checkmark "Apply to all accounts" also if that be the case.

    Hi,
    It varies on mine, if I have produced the image or file the R attribute is not set, but if the source is from elsewhere that R attribute is set. At least that appears to be the case.

    I think it is something to do where it's kept in the Mail App, presumably security.

    I am not familiar with Mail, this is the first that I have used it. There are not many setting options available and the one thing I dislike about it is that it provides no way to remove email address from it's autocomplete function. It also will perpetually store the email address of someone you may email only once.

    Some poor married guy is going to email some girl and his wife will sooner or later find the email address. LOL


    am wondering if uninstalling Mail and reinstalling will solve problem. I went to Outlook and removed old contacts but I would assume the mistyped ones would remain.

    Kelli - Thanks for the response. I did reset the Image Preview, but I do not think that will fix the problem. Will update if it does fix it.

    On your second post, Yes I may try that as a last response.

  9. Hippsie - I have that setting to download the external file automatically, so it can't be that. But Helmut posted after you that he also see's the Read only attribute on in his description.

  10. Helmut - thanks for getting back to me. Yes there must be a setting some place, but I'm confused with HippsieG's response, since he doesn't see the read attribute turned on ?

    You're welcome.

    I wasn't sure. I just started toying with the idea of using mail after I d/l the windows creator update. I'm not impressed with it all. I prefer Outlook. There is just not enough control or customization present in Mail to fulfill my requirements.

    Is the folder where you actually download the file and saved to set as read only?

    At this point I'm thinking it has to be something in File Explorer settings as Kelli just mentioned.

    When in Mail and you save the pic the default location should be in your Pictures folder.

    Try right clicking on your Pictures folder and choose Properties. It should open to the General tab. In the Attributes section is the Read only box empty or filled?

    My Pictures Folder is marked Read only however every file within is not.

    Thanks for that, Kelli. Yes, same here, which is surprising and confusing me. *Confused

    When attempting to clear that box, then re-clicking it a checkmark appears, then a fill square. There must be different levels of Attributes. I'm researching and learning that now.
