    Windows Mail App Notifications Disabled (Grayed Out)

    I have a problem with Windows 10 Mail app notifications.
    When trying to enable notifications from system option, I cannot toggle it at all?
    Despite the fact that it is already the default app!

    That looks like you have Outlook 2016 as your default Mail Application.
    Try a Restart and also these settings
    Settings > Privacy > Background apps > Mail On, People On, Settings On.
    Settings > Privacy > Email On, People On.
    Settings > Privacy > Calendar On > Let apps access calendar On > People On, Windows On.
    Settings > Accounts > Email & App accounts > Check you have at least one listed in Email, calendar and Contacts.

    You may have to reinstall the Mail App, there is a tutorial on here how to do that.
