    Outlook is better than the mail app. If anyone can name one single universal (or metro or whatever) app that is actually better than the desktop equivalent I'll eat my hat.
    Mail app better than Outlook in my experience.....SALT AND PEPPER or maybe you prefer MUSTARD with your hat.

    I fully agree with you Mail App the way to go
    Use it 100%
    Have all my e-mail accounts coming through it
    Also I don't even need to look to see when mail arrives I am notified straight away
    When this App arrived I dumped incredimail which I had just paid for.
    Also no hang ups with this App like I was getting with the above

    So he had better eat his hat does he want sauce on it as well

    I found and really like Em Client. It's free and one of the best Email Clients out there.. well out of the ones that I've tried and I've tried a lot of them.

    Mail app is a good thing to use as well. I found that one via a member here and I love it. And free is a good thing when it comes to this tool.

    You guys are serious???? The Mail app in Win 10 is truly horrible. I'd much rather use just about any other email client. Personally, I'm still using WLM 2012 which is vastly superior.

    I just fired up a Win 10 VM of mine that I had not booted since Nov 2015. Opened Mail app and WLM. Took WLM about 20 seconds to sync with mail server. Took the Mail app more than 5 minutes to sync. I also absolutely HATE that I cannot turn off the preview panel in the Mail app. I get emails that I don't want to see any part of (stuff that is obviously crap) so always want to turn preview off and delete them without viewing or opening them which the Mail app will NOT let me do. Major FAIL.

    I haven't tried the mail app long enough to give it a thumbs up or thumbs down. I was using Thunderbird for my emails until Jeff suggested eM Client. I liked the free version so much I decided to go with the paid version and have it set to check all my email accounts.

    One off the biggest gripes.... W7/8.1 being bombarded to upgrade to W10.
    Not a day goes by without my receiving the nag nag offers to upgrade from Avira free to the paid version.
    Commercial television is constantly breaking into programs to offer and encourage viewers to avail themselves of their services.
    Commercial radio is even worse, every three or four minutes a break for adds, the worst of the lot betting establishments trying to part you from your money with enticing offers of free betting.
    The point of this post....do you take offence or do you just ignore them.....NONE are obligatory.

    I could open easily four new e-mail accounts within 5 minutes, and set up how often and how far back I wished to go.
    You can delete at top r/hand individually without opening....or on the drop down menu choose......All, Unread, and Flagged.

    The following statement is taken from the opening of this thread by Ed Bott

    The Universal Windows Platform for Windows 10 changes that, big time. Most of the built-in apps are surprisingly good. Mail, for example, has been improving massively in recent months and now works not just with Microsoft services but with Gmail's native formats as well.

    I try my best to avoid advertisements whenever possible. For TV viewing I'll usually set the dvr on my cable box so I can watch the show later and fast forward through the commercials. The radio station I listen will play what they call a block of music before any interruptions. Not much I can do about that except ignore them or listen to one of my Cd's.
