    my mail will not work in windows 10


    i have had my pc for a year or so and when they updated it or something to that effect, my mail immediately stopped working and will not receive mail. i tried to use other mail servers but they were troublesome as well. the mail server that comes with windows 10 does not work with my msn mail. after much research i found that i need to rename a file called comms to something like Comms-old, i have tried to accomplish this task several times to no avail. every time i try i get an error message saying that the folder is in use and retry the rename or delete. i look at the file and it is to the mail and calendar section. but i have no idea of how to stop the program or how to delete it if it is running somewhere in the background of the pc. lastly i found a alternative to entering the mail set up into the app but sadly it did not work either




    i don't know what to do in this perplexing dilemma

    All I did to get my msn mail which will come up as outlook is
    Click on the Windows 10 Mail App
    Then Settings
    Then Manage Accounts
    Then entered my e-mail address
    Then Save or OK
    Once done you should then be able to access your mail through the Mail App

    The first error message you put up does not come up
    Can you check and repost that error again if you are able too

    If you're wanting to rename system file[s], normally that can be done by booting into Safe Mode [for Windows 7, which I have]. I do not know how to invoke W10 Safe Mode. If nothing else, one can boot a Puppy Linux usb or dvd, tree-climb to the file[s] to be renamed, rename the file[s], and make sure you keep a list of what was renamed.
