    New mail app


    Decided to dump the windows live mail and use the new mail app in windows 10,Got it working okay with both my emails.
    1.outlook.co
    2.gmail.com
    Both worked okay,So trying to adjust the settings to have a notification on new mail.But totally got confused followed the info on line and from this forum,The only thing is under Notifications & Actions in the settings should the new mail app show up there.
    If that is a yes well it don't show there with me.I have made it my default mail client but cannot get any joy with the new mail notifications.
    My wife has a W10 and using the mail app and looked at her settings which is working okay but cant get any joy on my desktop.
    Any thoughts please.The mail is getting through its just no sign of life in the notification box next to clock.
    Many thanks.

    Go back to Mail > Settings > Notifications. Can you do the settings as shown by the screenshot ?

    Just tried your fix David , and it worked here just now , got my 1st popup,

    maybe try closing Mail and restarting it if you didn't Menu , also check you are on the latest version of the Mail App , I wasn't till yesterday , it has the "move to junk option"

    see my post here

    So, you have the "new mail" notification now ?

    If yes, please mark the thread as Solved so that others with similar problem will know there is an answer here.
    Thank you.

    Yes David it worked for me just now on my Hotmail Account , but I'm not sure it works on all accounts like WLM did or does actually , it started working again on my laptop this morning , so M$ has changed something while fixing this weeks' spam issues too, as WLM wasn't working for the last 2 + weeks ( for live accounts) for me.

    Only the OP can mark it solved AFAIK ......

    My apology.
    I thought you were the OP.
    That's the problem of jumping from one thread to another. Mind got confused.
