    That's has been my experience
    you get them working and they are fine for a few days, then they break again

    need to wait a few days after the new update to see what happens

    Well I've just had a couple of fails. Think I'm going to shut off mail and just use thunderbird for notifications for now. I'll keep an eye on threads like these and revisit Mail in the future to see if it has improved or if any fixes have been found.

    One thing I have noticed is that if I change a mail related setting, whether toggling it back and forth or just changing it, it seems to make notifications work for a time. And then it stops.

    Decided to give one more try. I did a few more things I haven't tried which is to clear the notification cache (which is something I have wanted to do), and I ran a troubleshooter which stated that my Store won't work right with UAC disabled (so enabled it) and I reset the Store cache. Of course, notifications is working again but that will probably not last, lol.

    Thanks Brink - same behavior though. Seem like if I go into notifications and switch it off and then on again it works for a little while.
    Maybe restart does the same. I guess something is not sticking for some reason. Hopefully it gets sorted in near future.

    Thanks Brink. I sent some problem feedback regarding the Mail app and action center notifications and up voted some ones I saw.

    Btw my laptop model is:

    HP-15 F018DX
    with Windows 10 Home Version 1511 Build 10586.3

    I add that just in case this has something to do with the brand/model of laptops. There are for example some issues with some HP laptops and Windows 10 including intel management interface driver version 11.01 and synaptics touch pad version 19 causing some problems with shutdown and retaining synaptics settings.

    I can say for sure that for me that a restart of the computer always makes action center email notifications start working again.

    Question: Why is "Settings" listed as a background app? Wouldn't settings just be set and that is it?

    I'm not 100% sure but I think one trigger to make mail notifications stop working is when I launch thunderbird to check mail. I have thunderbird set with both msn accounts as pop accounts so this way I can save and store emails in the programs. Seems after I check thunderbird for mail Windows mail notifications stop working. I have server setting set to delete emails after downloading them. I imagine that shouldn't affect Windows Mail since new emails will stay there until I download them in TB and I keep TB off most of the time.

    In any case just to see if there is any impact I changed server settings in thunderbird to leave mail on the server for one day instead of immediately deleting after download. Now launching thunderbird does not stop notifications from working. Could be a coincidence though or maybe it is not the only trigger, only a few days or more of perfect working will tell...

    I think i might also change the setting in MSN mail online to put emails in a pop folder instead of following TB instruction to delete them (in a day).
