    I've successfully set up my Outlook/Hotmail account under the Win 10 app, there the server details say [email address removed] Hotmail.com, I wonder whether this will change when upgrade is complete & whether using this under WLM will allow it to work if it doesn't change. There's also the manual settings of:Servername: imap-mail.outlook.com
    Port:993
    Encryptionmethod: SSL
    Servername: smtp-mail.outlook.com
    Port:587
    Encryptionmethod: TLS
    Will these continue to work after the changeover I wonder.

    I have 2 hotmail and 1 gmail accounts with linked inboxes. In the hotmail accounts I have some aliases.
    I sent emails to each account and the aliases from a gmail account on my phone.
    With the Mail app closed, I got a notification sound, banner and the Action center button lit up for the 1st linked inbox, not the other 2.
    In Live mail 2012, all new primary and alias messages appeared in Quick Views, Unread email.
    In the Mail app, Only the 3 linked inboxes appear under unread mail, I have to go in to the alias folder to see if new mail has arrived in those.

    Hi.
    I thought a lot about this today,So I went and had a go at the mail app in windows 10.
    It looked okay I entered all my outlook and gmail accounts okay,But the feature is a bit different from wlm.So sent some emails to myself and other friend to see how it worked.Yes it was okay but failed to get the new mail notification to show up on screen when new mail arrives,Did all the settings regarding the notification but nil.
    Has anyone here solved that issue.It may take a while to get into using the mail app but without the notification will have to think about that fault on bill gates side.
    Thanks to all.
    Did you check all the options as the screenshot shown ?

    Yes.
    I resent a single mail to the second hotmail account and got a notification. Seems you get only 1 notification. Cleared the notification and sent single to the 3rd linked gmail inbox, it notified. When sending 3 emails in a row, it only notified on the first.

    An option you might have overlooked........ Link all Inboxes.

    All the inboxes are linked already. The aliases are folders under the 2 hotmail accounts and can't be linked.

    That's odd, I just sent email to the aliases again, the mails showed up in the folders with no notification or indication that there was unread mail at the linked inbox level, Live Mail 2012 displayed them all as unread mail. The only way to know if the aliases have mail is to open the folders and look, not at all ideal. Hopefully they see their error and fix it.
