    Syncing e-mail accounts in Windows 10 Mail app error code 80072726

    Hey guys,

    I am enjoying Windows 10! for the most part....

    Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro does fine.
    Core i7-4500U
    256 SSD
    8 GB or RAM

    This may be more of a networking issue and how the Mail App communicates over the network. I am not able to sync any of my email accounts with the Mail app. Thus far, I have only attempted two different Gmail accounts. I followed one thread and disabled the firewall temporarily: this did the trick. However, I would rather not disable my firewall so very often... is there a more permanent workaround?

    I am not using Windows Defender fyi. I am using 2015 AVG Internet Security. I attempted to add the Mail app to the list of applications that could bypass the firewall by going to AVG Options -> Firewall Settings -> Applications, but the Mail App is not very easy to find... I checked the most obvious place: Windows -> SystemApps and didn't know where else to look.

    Thanks in advance!

    I am only using Windows Defender on my Surface Pro. I used to have the issue as well that the mail and calendar app randomly crashed. That has been resolved now, but since then I can't sync my Gmail. No problem though with my

    Any ideas?
