    Windows Mail and Calendar won't send attachments


    Windows Mail and Calendar won't send attachments. I can attach a file, hit send, but it doesn't show whether it went out and it never comes in. I understand that perhaps some problems with Windows 10 are resolved by connecting Mail and Calendar and Windows 10 with an online Microsoft account, is that right? I already have an online Microsoft account but I don't believe it's connected with this OS and email client. Do you know how I connect those?

    :)

  2. can't send large attachments via Outlook

    I have an HTC Titan and have it set up using my office e mail for Outlook

    It won't let me send any decent sized attachments (e.g. one image from the phone)

    I get an e mail from "windows phone" saying check the address (I have) and that the attachment may be too large.

    I assume I have a limit on my outlook e mail for the size of attachment i can send - how do i change that?

    Thanks

    Chris

  3. Mail not opening attachments

    The Microsoft MAIL program that came with the last 2 Windows 10 Refreshes.

    This program is more than a disappointment, it is truly a piece of garbage.

    Won't open an attachment, won't give you proper information, just an open or save box, which doesn't work.

    Scroll over boxes that obscure what you are trying to see, and nobody fixes these things. There's a thread on this that is YEARS old.

    My Microsoft Live Mail from 2011 ? still works and will open attachments, apparently no longer supported and the Calendar won't work.

    Doesn't seem to get along with other e-mail providers either, occasionally bounces back sent mail as well.

    We need a RELIABLE e-mail program that is interoperable with Windows, Android and Apple and Google, etc. Is this TOO hard?

    Windows Mail and Calendar won't send attachments

    My first thought it that a Microsoft account should not be needed to be able to send attachments, you simply attach a file as you have been doing and send the email. Usually, the email then shows up in your sent folder where you can check to see if the attachment is there. All this requires that your email client has been correctly set up in the W10 Mail app. Your email client should have provided instructions on how to do this.

    If you want to try using a Microsoft account for your windows login, there are some benefits and here are two tutorials that should help you to understand Microsoft accounts and how to switch to them. Not all people like using MS accounts though so have a search through threads on this topic and see what you are comfortable with.

    My first thought was, why do you need an email client for Gmail? I use Gmail but I only use the mail app for the calendar side of it.

    Windows Mail and Calendar won't send attachments

    I need an email client for Gmail for the same reason why I use Hotmail via Mail app. This app helps me to organise all my e-mail accounts in one place so there will be no hassle with inserting login credentials repeatedly and I can check new e-mails and write/reply to them via app.
