    Nice work.
    Thank you.

That's all I did. Since then everything works. I found the folder with Windows Explorer but you can use every File Explorer. Maybe you need to tell Windows Explorer to show all hidden and system files but I don't remember if that was necessary. Hope it works.
    Fantastic this worked perfectly for me.....thank you

    Fail Fail Fail and again!


    OK, I have tried every so called solution that has been posted here and elsewhere so from 0x8007054e where it all started until now getting 0x80070490 errors I am going to finally give up. Services changed, reset, Apps date changed and rechanged and it still won't work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still it returns these errors. My only guess now is to do a fresh / clean install of Windows 10..... I don't think so! I've had enough with the mail and calender app I remain happy that it does at least work on my Windows Phone

    Now, are there any other as yet unheard of solutions?

    It works in Windows Phone ? Surprise.
    Mail app is too rudimentary. If all one wants is send and receive, it does the job. If one wants more than that, forget about it.

    My granny always has a thing she said. "if you have nothing sensible to say, don't say it" - I have found this to be a valuable asset in life when dealing with people. Now, because I missed a couple of valuable words from my "rant" let me fill it in for you. "at least the Windows Phone version Works........ " But I do forgive you reminding me of the Apps uselessness!

    You see, I like a challenge and the App is challenging me no matter how rudimentary it is.


    Happy now, I hope so as I still intend to search for a solution
