    Cannot get Mail App to work with Gmail or Hotmail accounts


    Having got all of my standard stuff, including having MS Outlook handle my email accounts, sorted out; I decided to give the new Windows 10 Mail Application a try.
    Unfortunately I cannot get it to do a darned thing:-
    1. With my Hotmail account I get error code 0x80070032. I've tried a couple of suggested "solutions" without success.
    2. With my Gmail account I get "We didn't find anything to show here" or "Still working on it". Either way nothing shows up.

    Maybe I should just stick with MS Outlook.

    However, if anyone could help I'd be very grateful.

    For your Hotmail account, change the setting for getting the emails to 'last 3 days' and see if it works. If it does, change it back to whatever interval selection you want.

    Usually when Google or other account say those, it's also a syncing issue. Might want to try playing with those settings as well.

    I have both outlook.com (same as Hotmail) and Google working in the new Windows 10 mail app and even on my Windows 10 phone preview build. So they can work if you find the problems with your settings.

    Thanks OldGuy.

    I did try the "last 3 days" but it made no difference.
    Guess I'll need to keep fiddling with the settings and see what transpires.

    I had a similar problem which I solved by going to Settings / Privacy / Calendar and setting to on "Let apps access my calendar".
