    How add the Mail app to the Background Apps in Windows 10

    I'm new here. As there isn't much place now to ask for Windows 10 help so I came here atlast inhope you guys can help me to sort out my issues with Windows 10.
    I've already seen this post - Solved Does mail run in the background? - Windows 10 Forums of your forum where you guys has mentioned that the Windows 10 default Mail app only run in background if the Calender app has been merged with it.
    I've merged the calender app and also set up my mail app, the the problem is that I don't receive any notification, when I receive new mails. So, I dig deep and find out that "Mail" app is not showing in the "Background Apps" list.

    I've also tried to enable every kind of notification from Mail app, so that I receive the notification when new mail arrives. This is really important to me. Otherwise I miss my important emails.

    So if any of you guys know how to fix this issue so that my Mail apps keep running on background and I get the notification for my new emails, please let me know and help. Though I'm not sure if this is only me or someone else too who is facing this same issue like me. Please help!

    It seems a lot of people are having this problem. I'm guessing a bug. I read we're supposed to get our first Service Release 1 (SR1) this month so hopefully this will be a bug that's squashed.
