Windows 10: How to use my Outlook email instead of Windows 10 mail

    How to use my Outlook email instead of Windows 10 mail

    Windows 10 mail leaves much to be desired, at least for me. It will not sync with my Outlook mail account that I have used for years. It is not possible to change its default font and size, and it stops and starts when I am typing an email, and my large accumulation of important files in the many folders that I need regularly will not appear as needed.

    How can I select my real Outlook mail program to be my prime email account, in place of Windows 10 mail? I have no problem with adding my yahoo and aol accounts, but am not able to change the settings to bypass/eliminate Windows 10 mail and go to my Outlook account. I have it setup with a separate tile, but it would be best to have it on my mail Account page that appears when the Mail tile is selected. Suggestions appreciated.

    Good to know I am not alone. I've searched for days to find a way to add groups of names to my contact list, just like I have had with Outlook for years. No success there, and a very obvious oversight, unless I have missed how this may be done.
