  1. Windows Mail sync error - Error 0x80072726


    Hi,

    Since upgrading from windows 8.1 to 10 I am unable to sync any of my email addresses with Windows mail. Every time I click sync, it tries and after a while returns an error code: 0x80072726. I have tried deleting the accounts and recreating them, tried various types, hotmail, gmail etc but nothing works. Googling the issue seems to show a number of users with the same issue, some suggesting a firewall issue.

    I have just tried switching off Bitdefender firewall and it now works. Anyone know which rules I need to set up in bitdefender rules to allow mail sync?

    :)

  2. Error code 0x80072726. When trying to sync email for 3 weeks now. Help please

    Hi,

    I'm also getting error code 0x80072726. My gmail account cannot be synchronized in Windows 10 mail client. It is quite frustrating given the fact that it used to work OK with Windows 8 (and 8.1).

    I am using

    - Mail and Calendar version 17.6120.42011.0

    - on Lenovo Yoga 13.

    I did disable my antivirus (Bitdefender Total Security 2015) but this does not solve the issue. Error code 0x80072726 is coming back time I try to sync my gmail account.

    Disabling AV in order to sync e-mail (calendar) is anyway not the way to go!

    Is there a solution to this problem?

    Thank you.

    Windows Mail sync error - Error 0x80072726

    Mail won't sync. I get no error messages it just says "Still working on it ..." for awhile and then just quits.

    Also when I receive my email in Outlook 2003 the links in the email don't take you to the correct URL.

  5. I also face the same problem. The previous app in Windows 8 and 8.1 works but after upgrading to windows 10 this problem shows up. What the heck is happening ? I want to use my mail app just like before. I use 3 mail so it will become convenient to use this app

  6. Hi there, I had the same problem . My microsoft email-adresses worked perfectly, but my Google adress didn't. I stumbled across this Reddit page with the same problem and I found the solution there:

    "Allowing SVCHOST.EXE does the trick for me.
    ive checked my firewall log and when syncing these are the details
    c:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe ... Remote port 993 Local Port 56161 ..." - flyingbrains on Reddit

    Source: http://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/...hen_trying_to/

    What I did was open my AVG anti-virus and I added a new exception from the adress above with the above TCP ports and it works perfectly now!

    Windows Mail sync error - Error 0x80072726

    In AVG - Hit Firewall Active button > opens General Settings > hit Applications > sort those so that Advanced Settings comes up at the top of the lists (you'll see) > then left click on the Advanced settings part and it allows you to block or allow SVCHOST.EXE. Works for gmail anyway. *Smile

  9. You have to add the TCP ports that your firewall are blocking. I configured my AVG Firewall adding the 993 & 465 TCP & UDP ports in the applications - in this root C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SVCHOST.EXE - Edit - and last find Time Synchronization Client TCP / Time Synchronization Client UDP - Then edit the rule in remote port section in order to add the ports mentioned above.


    I attached a pic with the configuration.


    I'm sorry for my English. I hope you can solve this issue.
