    Google account (mail / calendar) not syncing in Windows 10

    First confirm if you have two step authentication in you Google account.
    If YES follow these steps:

    To have the Windows Mail app to work you have to generate a password for the Windows Mail app in your Google account at https://security.google.com/settings/security/apppasswords
    Copy/paste this password into the password field of your Gmail account in the Mail app Settings/Accounts/Gmail
    This needs to be done only once.

    Also check in Windows 10 Settings/Privacy if you have in Contacts AND Calender the Mail and Agenda allowed access ON
    If both are OFF the Mail app won't sync without throwing any error!!
    Just one off the many bugs in Mail app!

    Hi jaykay42,



    Thank you for posting to the Microsoft Community. I understand you're running in to some issues syncing with your Google Mail account where you're only able to sync around 400 older, archived emails. Can you please let me know how old these emails are? What
    is the date for the most recent one?



    The page located at
    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/How-to/wp7/people/sync-google-email-contacts-and-calendars-faq
    contains the basics for setting up your Google email, contacts, and calendars for syncing with Windows Phone. It may be a good idea to have a look there to
    start and see if any of the listed steps help to clear any issues up.



    Some other possibilities for a resolution will include disabling the mail sync for your Google Mail account under
    settings > system > email + accounts and enabling it again, or trying a soft reset of your phone by removing the battery for a few minutes (if possible).



    Please let me know any additional details you're able to find out and let me know also if any of my other suggestions were able to clear the issue up.



    Regards,
