    Windows 10 Mail Is Frustrating Me

    I just switched from Windows XP with Outlook as my mail program to Windows 10 Mail. I have the following problems with this obviously web based email app:

    1. Sync to my Gmail account is sporadic. When I open my Gmail account in the morning in Windows Mail, it often shows that mail has not been checked since the previous day. Meanwhile my Ipad shows the Gmail immediately. I tried playing with the "settings" options, but no matter which sync instruction I use the problem persists.

    2. Windows Mail is painfully slow (sometimes minutes) in opening PDF and photo attachments to mail messages.

    I don't quite understand how Microsoft allowed the program to be released with these bugs.

    Thanks for your responses in advance

    No help in fixing i'm afraid, but you are not alone with mail issues

    if you haven't checked yet, go to the store and check for updates, there was a mail update today, might fix your issues

    Windows 7 (reverted back)

    If you have a valid Outlook license, install Outlook
    Office 365 is 99 Euro / 99 dollar a year (and valid for 5 computers)
    Office 365 wil give you not just Outlook, but Word, Excel, publisher etc.

    You came from XP...... why not spent 99 dollar (shared with 4 other people) and have the complete office 2013 for 20 Dollar a year.

    good luck

    Why not keep using Outlook? What version? I use both 2003 and 2010 in my two machines and they work fine as they did before.

    I ditched it

    Set it up, slow, does not get e mails, so account info removed and unpinned....unfortunately it can't be uninstalled.

    I ditched it and went to Mozilla Thunderbird. Why isn't Microsoft being responsive to this frustrating problem?
