    delete / uninstall mail app


    Anyone know how to delete the mail app?
    Uninstall the mail app?
    NOT delete the account. It doesn't even let you delete an account in 10240. At least there is no option.

    Uninstall the mail app completely?

    Getting very annoyed with 10.
    Lots of issues.

    Going back to other system.

    It would be the Mail and Calendar app that you could uninstall to do so.

    Thanks. Would be great if it worked. At least not working here. The options are greyed out.
    All mail was deleted. No accounts could be deleted.

    You might see if you may have any success using OPTION TWO.

    Well, after 1000 builds, this stuff is still problematic.
    RTM in 10 days ?

    I tried the powershell list, and thoroughly searched everything listed.
    NO reference to mail - no mail app listed.

    I see
    WindowsCommunicationsApp
    WindowsAlarms
    WindowsPhone
    WindowsCamera
    BingFinance
    WindowsMaps
    Microsoft.AppConnector
    Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost
    Microsoft.AAD.BrokerPlugin
    Microsoft.BingWeather
    Microsoft.Getstarted
    Microsoft.ZuneVideo
    Microsoft.Windows.Photos
    Microsoft.BingSports
    Microsoft.WindowsStore
    Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection
    Microsoft.WindowsSoundRecorder
    Microsoft.Office.OneNote
    Microsoft.MicrosoftOfficeHub
    windows.devicesflow
    Windows.MiracastView
    Windows.PurchaseDialog
    Microsoft.BioEnrollment


    For now, going to test the reset or whatever it is now called.

    That would be the one. Don't you just love how they have the names.

    It includes People, Mail, and Calendar apps.

    ok. Successful uninstall. Thanks.
    I can't imagine anyone other than a geek or an IT nerd powershelling like a Linux terminal expert.
    Even Server installing to a command prompt with NO GUI.
    I guess they're expecting command com fluency ?

    It's strikes me as funny that there are GUI click complaints
    when powershell experts must enter millions of keystrokes.

    Get ready to do this again on or after the 29th. When you get the upgrade you might have to do this all over again.
