Lacks essential email features; Sync problems

All I need is a basic email app, nothing fancy. In Windows 8.1, Mail used to do the job fine. In this new Windows 10 version, I'm extremely surprised that Microsoft released this. First of all, there is no way to "Empty" your Junk and Trash folders! Each email must be deleted individually! The tech person at the Microsoft Store told me that there is a keyboard shortcut to delete emails rapidly one at a time, but I find this to be ridiculous. That's what an "Empty Folder" command is supposed to be for! All of the nice features for handling Junk mail like the "Sweep" feature, are gone, too. Also, my emails will only sync when I open the program and do it manually. My emails download after the sync, but after every sync attempt I get a "Something went wrong, we can't sync right now...Error Code: 0x80070032" Apparently, this has been widely discussed on the Microsoft Support Forums, with no resolution. Microsoft, please fix this app...as it is now, it's barely functional.

Needs to be more Robust

Mail appears to be downloaded locally. This means if I delete mail within the Windows Mail application, it does not delete the mail from my actual Email account. Since I am over compulsive when it comes to my Email, this renders this application useless to me. Why bother using the Mail app when I can just open my browser and click my favorites link...... The aesthetic is pleasing to me. I want to use it, but see no point for the time being. Calendar is functional, but I have no personal use for it.

Great addition for not so computer savvy.

Everything that I need to either manage emails or manage my calendar and events, or just to quickly access those internet arenas are clarified and easier to navigate. Well done!

What happened to this app

Mail stopped syncing about 5 days ago on one of my PCs. Calendar appears to sync occasionally. I'd like to uninstall and reinstall this app but there does not appear to be an option to do this. I liked the app before. Now it just is not useful.

Monochromatic & Bland

Calendar portion will not show the various color coding of Google Calendar. Will not load optional/additional calendars. Will not sync with Sunrise Calendar (a Microsoft product!) or it's additional calendars of interest. OneCalendar is much closer to Outlook Calendar functionality. If you were to port Sunrise Calendar, you would be MUCH BETTER OFF! Email portion will not update nor can I access account settings, does not show Google Colors either. I had to delete app, reinstall and reset my accounts. Now working OK. If I could find a good email app, I would delete all of this offering. A total mess, Microsoft NO help. Regret changing back from Android!

This app does NOT open on my machine anymore

Shortly after upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on my machine, this application would no longer launch. I had a Calendar icon on the Taskbar which disappeared. The space where it should be is still there...just no icon anymore. I tried to right click and unpin from the taskbar, but it remains. I cannot launch the Calendar or Mail apps from the Taskbar, Start Menu, or via Cortana. They simply do not do anything when clicked. Clicking the icon will not launch the application (I checked and the app process never starts). It's as if they have been disabled. In addition to these problems, the Live Tiles for Mail and Calendar are static and do not show any content. I wish I could attempt to uninstall/reinstall but uninstalling is not allowed for this app. This is a MAJOR issue. I've seen many others online with the same problem, and no resolution from Microsoft. PLEASE FIX THIS and I will be happy to rate again.

Shitty ! Someone should be fired !

I mess entirely my calendar. I create new event on the calendar app and it does not appears on my phone. I create new entry in my phone and does not updates in my calendar app. I change the time of the appoint and it doesn't update in the app. By comparing, in the Outlook app, everything is updated correctly and in real time. But Cortana can't integrate time based reminders in Outlook tasks (thanks to another "big brain thinker") so at the end it looks like this: 1. I paid for the organizer skills of Cortana; 2. I paid for the Office package because the Email and Calendar default apps can't sync between devices 3. I'm using 30% of organizer skills that I paid.

App Needs to be more friendly

I like that an email app is installed. This email app does not download attachments from known senders. This app is not easy to sort emails by different categories. This app does not allow one to navigate quickly Cant add new folders. barely any options for those of us who like organization.

Horrible app. Poorly executed

Does not sync Gmail well, it is stuck syncing often. No always up to date Pinning of multiple accounts to start screen is very hard to discover Even if u manage to pin an account to start it opens up with the last account and takes a few seconds to switch the account requested. Something tells me databinding is really messed up.

Mail app is horrible

Unfortunately the the Windows 8 mail app was great and easy to organize. The new Windows 10 is really terrible and does not sync and I am not getting emails right away and take for ever to down load.
