    Are you actually using the "Windows Mail" program? MS totally disabled it after Vista.

    I've managed to tweak it to work on Windows 7, 8 & 8.1, but can't get it to work at all on windows 10.

    I use Windows Mail (Vista). Copied it from a 64 bit machine of mine that's old. You have to delete the existing Windows Mail in program files before copying this over. Works just fine.
