Windows 10: Mail App Opens and shut down Solved

    Mail App Opens and shut down


    I have been using the Mail app for a couple of week now. I have two accounts - one a Gmail account and one a POP3 account. They have both been working fine. All of a sudden, when I open the Mail app, it sits for about 3 seconds and then closes. I cannot bring up settings as there is not enough time. I can see a message sitting on each of the client mail queues.

    The only thing that I did was switch my default browser from IE11 to Firefox as a workaround for an Outlook hyperlink problem. I did switch back to IE11 as the default and the problem is still there.

    Any thoughts as to where I can look for a message as to why the mail app is failing?

    Thanks,

    Mine started doing that. Only way I found to fix it was to run the Windows 10 setup.exe again and "upgrade" my current Windows 10 to Windows 10. Didn't lose any data or anything.

    I created an ISO disk. Are you saying that I should actually reinstall windows 10 from the disk?

    Since I decided to make Firefox the default browser, I really want to delete the two mail app accounts and just use Outlook for all my mail.

    Thank for the solution. I will think about it.

    Don't boot from it. Put it in with the operating system running and run setup.exe from it, just like you would do an upgrade.

    I will give that a try later on today and let you know how it turns out.

    Same problem. But at least I know that my ISO disk works.

    There has to be a log out there somewhere. I guess I will try Google to see where it might be.

    You both might need to check in Time & Date settings in the control panel and check your Time zone settings and (this is usually the main problem)> go to the settings app and turn off Location for mail and calendar.

    Location is ON and all the apps are OFF. I haven't touched these settings and the Mail app was working fine.

    It just all of a sudden decided to stop working.

    Not sure what happened but when I tried the Mail app this time all of my mail was there and the app stayed up.

    Maybe it was the reload of Windows 10 that did it.

    I am happy now.

    Thanks for all your help on this problem.
