  1. Windows 10 Mail does not download attachments


    There are a number of threads with this same issue going back to 2015 but they are all locked and no definitive solution was found. I just bought a new desktop computer with Windows 10 and am trying to use the Mail app. Mail does not download certain files attached to mail messages, e.g. pdf files. I still have Live Mail on my laptop and it receives the attachments with no problems. It appears this problem goes back at least 6 years and has been experienced by hundreds - if not thousands - of Win 10 users. Is there a definitive solution?

    :)
