  1. Windows Mail asking for password every now and then


    Hello.


    I've got 4 accounts set up on the Windows 10 Mail app (2 GMail, 1 private, and 1 Outlook address).


    The first 3 addresses work fine, but about 2 months ago the app started asking me to enter my outlook password every few days.

    I tried to delete and recreate the account twice, but it keeps asking me to re-enter the password every now and then for no apparent reason.


    I have the same settings on another computer and I have no problem whatsoever.


    How can I stop that ? It's only my outlook address that's behaving like this, I don't really get it.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Windows Mail asking for password every now and then :)

    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)
