    Got mine to work eventually, this is what I did

    From options within mail, turn notifications off then back on again (do this for all accounts)
    Under notifications is System Settings, toggle notifications Off then On again
    Under default Apps in System Settings make another app your default mail handler, then put it back to the Mail App

    Not sure which one of the above fixed it, but after doing them my notifications are now working as expected, even with mail closed
    But for how long? I get mail notifications for a while after a reboot, then they just stop and never start again. However when the app gets updated, they start again, but eventually stop. Seems just a damn buggy app framework. :/

    Hello, remy. Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks for your response, but that's not it. We've been working on this since GA/RTM release. However I'm glad to said something for mine was checked off for I fresh installed and forgot to set.

    Hi there, IntelliMoo. Just a hunch, but I think it's an OS service that's failing, for some have the problem and some don't. We shall see.

    I turned that off long time ago, don't like the mail app in w10 Much. I have been using a mail notify program called Howard E-Mail Notifier Since win 7 its free and can be setup for lots of different email accounts. Give it a shot.
    Google the name.... Howard e-Mail should find it easy.

    At times I get my mail in bunches all at once, other times it seems to work normal, anyone else notice this behavior?

    Hi tcman,

    Yes when I switch from my User Account to my Administrator Account my notifications work for several minutes until caught up on "new" mail. After that notifications stop working.

    Because the Mail & Calendar apps work closely I might have found something. In my main Settings > System > Default apps - Calendar does not appear (no way to set it).
    However in Control Panel > Default Programs - Calendar is set as default.

    Just want to know if others see the same thing as me.

    Calendar won't appear in the Modern Settings for the Mail and Calendar apps are actually one app called Communications app.

    Here's what I have set:

    Thanks for the info. Not completely sure, but most likely this won't work with the Modern Store apps, for they're WinRT, not Win32.
