    Did you set download to "as items arrive" inside mail>Settings>Accounts - that might stop it going to sleep.
    I think Paul has his computer monitor set to sleep after inactivity. Not sure that will affect notifications.
    I am suggesting he disable that setting and see what happens. Modern monitors do not "burn thru" the way older ones did after extended time displaying.

    going to do some more testing and check out these extra comments

    Currently Action centre is turnoff off
    going to reboot and then turn it back on
    then I will set to receive mails as they arrive (have tried this in the past but not since last updates)
    I will leave mail open all day

    what I am also thinking, is it possible to totally uninstall mail/calendar, I know there is a powershell command, but this doesn't totally remove it, it just seems to remove it from the logged in user which then requires a partial re install from the store, so if something in the main part of it is corrupt (all users profile)it is not getting uninstalled

    anyway, going to reboot now and set notifications/settings back, I will return shortly

    Running Command Prompt (Admin) sfc /scannow should tell you if you have corrupt files.
    If sfc says it can't fix them run DISM.
    I have more info on these if you need them.

    Ok I got to ask you guys, since I've been reading your posts last few days. When you guys are running Win10's mail app, are you using it to monitor like live mail/outlook, gmail, or yahoo mail accounts??? Reason is my mail app, NOT built-in windows mail, works 100% with no problems, and I don't have to change all the settings on my computer, just to run my mail notify app. Any windows mail app that makes user jump thru hoops, like you guys are doing ain't worth the trouble.

    Yes you can completely uninstall it. It seems a bit involved though - there may be a better way but I don't know it. From elevated powershell:

    Code:
    $app="microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps"
    Get-AppxPackage -Name $app -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -Online | where DisplayName -EQ $app | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online
    But this doesn't delete the packages from your PC. You want to delete it from C:\Program Files\WindowsApps as well so if you don't want to mess with the permissions of the folder (best not to), from elevated command prompt take ownership and delete the relevant directories (you may not have all depending on your version)
    Code:
    takeown  /f  "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.6208.42001.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" /r
    icacls       "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.6208.42001.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F) /t
    rmdir        "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.6208.42001.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" /s /q
    
    takeown  /f  "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_2015.6208.42001.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe" /r
    icacls       "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_2015.6208.42001.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F) /t
    rmdir        "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_2015.6208.42001.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe" /s /q
    
    takeown  /f  "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.6224.42281.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" /r
    icacls       "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.6224.42281.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F) /t
    rmdir        "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_17.6224.42281.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe" /s /q
    
    takeown  /f  "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_2015.6224.42281.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe" /r
    icacls       "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_2015.6224.42281.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F) /t
    rmdir        "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_2015.6224.42281.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe" /s /q
    Then you can go to the store and download it again.

    If this thread gets to 100 pages and I can't solve this....then I might, just maybe install a different app.
    Don't let it beat you down ......it is just another of life's challenges.
