Windows 10: Is the Mail app just buggy?

    Is the Mail app just buggy?

    I promised myself I would give each of the apps a fair trial before execution, and Mail set up so nicely with my four web mail accounts I thought it was a real keeper.

    Since then I cannot depend upon it because it won't open about 1/3 of the time.

    Are others experiencing this?

    I'm having the same issue. I think it started after this last Windows Update or the one before.

    Thanks, Shawn. Another round just asked for restart and now it opens.

    I am also using Skype and Onedrive now. Any other apps you recommend as convenient?

    Not off the top of my head.

    I'm also having the Mail app issue in 8.1.

    Arghh! Won't open again.

    Oh well. I like it when it works.

    Yeah I remember actually trying a few of them one of the times I installed Win8 to a Dual Boot and got rid of it within a day or two. The apps were very much a part of the frustration. I'll let any that appear to be useful have their trial, but then they're getting uninstalled.

    What else can be pinned to the right hand of Start Menu if one doesn't have any apps or just one or two?

    Hey Greg,

    Using the tutorial below to re-register all apps fixed my Mail app. If you like, you might see if it may for you as well. :)

    Shawn, Apps - Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 resulted in a Runtime error for Mail. Might be due to 7 Apps not being found. I ran as Admin.

    Trying to run it again hangs at Initialized:

    I am running Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter - Fix Apps in Windows 8 which seems to be hung on Re-Registering. There was no choice to Run as Admin in Advanced Options nor to run the fix .cab as Admin.

    Incidentally, when trying to paste these uploaded images into post, the dropdown menu is blank. I had to guess where each listing was, it chose all of them which I then deleted down.

    While the troubleshooter is running about 10 minutes later, I notice Mail app has disappeared from taskbar and Start menu. But choosing it from All Apps list still generates Runtime error. Maybe it's working, slowly.

    Hmm, may be time for a refresh.

    Yeah, I've noticed that with attachments as well. Using a wide skin has them show properly for now though. I'll report this so John can take a look at them.
