    mailapp don't know server-adress??


    Greetings.
    I want to try Windows 10 mailapp, but I can't get it to work. I want to try with my Microsoft mail (it is a live.dk domain). When opening the maip-app first it wrote, the the mailserver did not exists. Then I typed in the microsoft mailserver used by Windows live mail program. But that don't work either. I can't find the setting to delete the windows mail-account that does not work.

    Please, how do I get this up and running? I thought that it should be so easy to use a Microsoft app in Microsoft windows with a Microsoft email ... but no!

    Try these addresses from Ask Leo:
    What are Outlook.coms IMAP, POP3, and SMTP settings? - Ask Leo!

    Don't let the app set things up for you - select other account
    more info: Mail and Calendar apps for Windows 10 Help - Outlook

    Unfortunately I had a similar issue trying to delete the initial account I set up in the Mail app - I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it. Deleting the app and removing the associated folders did not remove the account, it must be buried somewhere - maybe up in Outlook.com - not sure

    Today is a good day

    That did not help for my Microsoft account

    My gmail account works "out of the box", but the microsoft account don't. The error is "can't syncronize mail account"

    Why the f..k can't it just use the info from windows 10 it self!! It is the same email account I use to log into Windows 10. Same emailadress and same password!

    Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10

    MS is mucking about with eMail protocols
    See if there's a pending update for the Mail app that has not installed

    Check your Privacy Settings for Email. If it is turned off it will not Sync. You may also want to check your Privacy Settings for Calendar as well, if you plan on using the Calendar App. If you sign in to Windows 10 with a Microsoft account, then you will not be able to delete that account in Mail.
