    Sirs,
    Usually I can access Gmail a/c through Windows Mail but message states " We couldn't access this account:Gmail. You might need to update your password or give the account permission to sync to this device". I have successfully updated my password but I cannot find how to 'sync' one to the other. As an aside: how can my password become out of date and why would sync have been lost? My ntlworld email a/c runs perfectly well through Windows Mail. Using Windows Mail, I can receive test mail from ntlworld a/c to my Gmail but I can't send test mail from Gmail to my ntlworld a/c.


    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Windows Mail :)

    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)
