    Wld U try to create folders, subfolders in Mail app; tell me if works?


    Would someone who has Windows 10 please try to create some folders and subfolders in Mail App and tell me if it works?

    Also, I read that Mail app does not "read" any emails with a .eml extension. In your experience, is this true? If it is true, how do you keep and be able to read your emails that end with .eml?

    Thanking you in advance!

    :)

  3. Windows 10 mail app storage folder creation

    I was able to create Folders and subfolders in windows 8.1 mail prior to upgrading to Windows 10. This facility is a must have in order to organize and file messages.

    When will Microsoft supply a fix to this problem.

    Sorry, could not find a way, there's just no option for that anywhere. Sent a suggestion to feedback.

    Mike thank you!!! You just saved me from a disaster. Unless someone can find a way to install Windows Mail (not live mail) on Windows 10, then, I won't be updating. I have probably 50 folders and subfolders in Windows Mail where I store things under different topics. I can't even imagine what life would be like without that ability. The forums I moderate, the work topics I have to save - all would be one huge impossible jumble. I get about 100 messages a day; about 2/3rds are deleted but the rest must be saved in one folder or another.

    What a shame! I did try WLM but its "ribbon" features drove me crazy and after 3 months of trying to work it and like it, I went back to Windows Mail from Vista, tweaked to work on Windows 7.

    I still do wonder if Mail app can even read any messages with a .eml extension!

    Ok, here it is as it's on my computer. I have 10 in dual boot with W8.1 on another disk on which I have office installed. First time after opening Mail App, it found all of may mail on hotmail.com account. Now I'm not sure if it picked that mail up from hotmail server or from disk. On that other disk I also have same mail files downloaded by MS Outlook, all with *.eml extension. I tried to open some of them but in Mail App there's no way to pick individual files. When I tried to open those files using "Open with" option, Mail App was not an option. Looking at the Store it gave me one App to open .eml file but contents were all scrambled. So I guess that Win 10 does not have anything to open that kind of file and will have to find a third party e-mail client.

  7. Folders:
    I know I created folders in an earlier build. That was when setting up Outlook Mail (mail app) was straight forward. On a subsequent build the setup got confusing and I had to add the account as an exchange type. Now the setup seems better and offers Outlook.com as a setup option, but my setting is still for Exchange - that's an entirely different story.

    In this iteration I was unable to add a folder in the mail client, but going to Outlook.com I could add a floder and it was sync'd down to the client. Convoluted way of doing it, but it can be done.

    I suppose it depends on the protocol (POP3, IMAP, Exchnage) used when you set up the account. POP3 should allow you to create folders on the local client without any of the intuitive shenanigans.

    As kelliann said, I'll most likely use a real mail client - not this watered down Mail app.

    I used weMail ((WLM) in Win8 - it took a while to get past some things, but the Quick Acceess Toolbar and a few other personalizations made it usable. I actually like it and will miss it because it will not install on Win10 unless you turn on .NET 3.5 in features. Sheesh! You'd think MS would keep their install dependencies up-to-date ... unless they want you to use the newest offering - which is usually usuable for the first year or two.Filetype dotEML:
    I could not find anything on the filetype .eml - I have the Office preview installed, so associate filetypes points to Outlook (the real one, not the so-called named app).

    I tried open with but I cannot get to the mail app due to security access.

    Task managers tells me that the exe for Outlook Mail is:
    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.6017.42001.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\HxMail.exe

    I changed the owner of the folder to System, but still was 'locked' out. There must be some protection in the registry or perhaps in policy.

    I probably won't dig any deeper - hopefully there's enough info if anyone wants to look further.

    Mike -
    Thank you for trying! I can't understand why MS thinks people have no need for a good full featured email client on their computers. Especially small business people. Even Apple Mail is better than this washed out Mail app!!

    Slartybart - thank you for this information. I will hope that someone who understands all this better than I do will work on it. Now I have at least a little hope that MS will eventually allow folders. I wonder what they think people are supposed to do who have the Windows Mail client on their computers (or even Outlook Expres).... just lose all those emails?

    When I got Windows 7, I found a program somewhere that lets you "take ownership" of any folder on the tree. Of course now I don't recall its name. But it has been invaluable.

    I've never used webmail. I have it, can use it if I am out somewhere using someone else's computer to check mail, but, I only use Windows Mail on my own computer.

    I am so sorry about all of this - I didn't want Windows 8 but I was ready to try Windows 10. Now - I guess it will be 7 forever unless I can find something like windows Mail. I tried Thunderbird once but didn't care for it that much. Someone in some thread suggested emMAIL (I think that is the right name so I will be taking a look at that. But I have thousands upon thousands of messages stored in Windows Mail and I need to be able to refer to them - that is the concernng part. I know people way WM and OE were "unstable" but I have never ever had a problem with them, probably because when a folder reaches between 4,000 and 5,000 messages, I move them to another folder labeled "old xxx" with the dates it spans. But I also back up.

    I appreciate everything you've done and the time you took to check it out.

    How to use Winmail on Windows 8.

     
  11. CountMike New Member
    I was intrigued by that problem because I didn't transfer MS Office 2013 to W10 yet. I use Outlook for main mail client in parallel with live mail to keep mail I need to be saved. I expected Mail App in W10 to be something like Outlook Express in XP which was a very good client, simple and fast.

    Dude,
    I am sorry I did not respond sooner but it wasn't from lack of interest, there were just some other things happening that took me away from this. Thank you for this information, and I went to the 8 forum and saw the information there. Getting it to work on 8 and 10 seems to be a little different than doing it for 7 but I think I can manage. Does the same method that you used work on the latest build of 10? Someone said they got it to work on an earlier build but not a later one. Thank you very much!

    Wld U try to create folders, subfolders in Mail app; tell me if works?

    All of my Windows 8.1 Mail folders and subfolders migrated to Windows 10 Mail when I upgraded this week. However, I can't create any new folders or subfolders in Win 10 Mail (like everyone else has noted).

    If you make sure all the folders and subfolders you may need are created in Win 8.1 Mail BEFORE you upgrade to Win 10 Mail, they will migrate. But, you'll have to individually "sync" each folder in order for the actual emails to appear in the folder.

    Pooh on MIcrosoft for not giving us a Mail account that is fully functional. This is an "Upgrade"???

    You are talking about Windows Mail - the one that originally came with Vista that replaced Outlook Express, right? Not the Windows Live Mail that came with Windows 7.

    My first thought after reading this was to wonder if you can change folder names. Because if you can, you can first create a lot of empty folders that are "untitled" and then name them when you know what the names should be.

    My second thought was, if you have a second computer with Windows 7 or 8, can you create a new folder and just import it into Windows 10 when you need it?

    Would you be able to try either or both of these and let me know the results? Just a note, I have Windows 7 but I don't know if it would mattter if you were migrating from 7 or 8 with Windows Mail (not Live Mail).
