    I just installed Win 10 on my mums laptop, mail sync was working. Ran a few win updates and now there is no mail at all in the inbox.

    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...
    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
    Then you can go to the store and download it again.
    Thanks for the info

    I will pass on this, thought it might be easier

    don't really want to start changing permissions on system areas if I can help it

    Are you saying "older" emails disappeared? What Email provider (Gmail, Outlook or others)? Can you check the accounts with your browser?

    This might be totally irrelevant, but I notice in your specs you use a laptop also

    What screen resolution have you got?

    Actually like this you are only taking ownership of the directories you delete - the permissions stay the same for others. I tried taking ownership of the whole WindowsApps folder but that broke everything for me.

    Exactly the same as mine

    Just wondering if graphics play any part in this, seen mention of graphics affecting Action Centre in the past
