Windows 10: Want to Uninstall Microsoft Email App. Solved

  1.    03 Aug 2015 #1

    Want to Uninstall Microsoft Email App.


    Here is my question, my Windows 10 does not give me the option to uninstall Mail. (see images below Admin & User).
    Notice the move and uninstall buttons are "greyed out" or do not function.
    Also not sure why User has 313 MB and Admin 150 MB in size other than User account has 2 extra email accounts.

    I WANT TO UNINSTALL MAIL AND REINSTALL IT OR ANOTHER MAIL APP.
    Because notifications and receiving email are not working as they should, I am trying to do a "CLEAN INSTALL" of Mail App.

    Looks great, THANK YOU tofmin.

    I am taking your advice to wait for an UPDATE to fix my MAIL app before uninstalling it. I advise others reading this thread to wait for an UPDATE before uninstalling.
