A massive step backwards.

I finally had a nice clear mail program with the windows 8 mail system, where what I wanted to see what clear: topics and a reading plane, with an easy way to switch between accounts. Now this new program with windows 10 comes along and the ease of reading my inbox in a moment has disappeared. More clicking to get from one account to the next. Smaller topic headers and emails separated by what day they arrived.. make it choppy. Cluttered interface. Honestly, windows doesn't need to do much for me, and mail is one of the few windows programs I use frequently. I'm going to consider re-installing windows 8.1 if I can't find a similar email client than the one I used to have.

Not working on pop3 mail

Tried several ways of creating account with advanced option. No easy way to define SSL ports. Every time creation appears successful and system downloads mail, but when trying to read a "Download message and pictures" message appears which fails to download.

Settings don't save. When I change a setting the "Done" button stays grayed out. The conversation view is extremely annoying. Can't view all my accounts at once. Notifications don't work. The layout is pretty ugly when no email is selected.

Needs a lot of hard work.

Don't Like: When I send email there's no way to know if the email is being sent or not. At least show some "Sending animation" icon. I have to manually check in sent items if it is sent. And use windows 10 notification system to tell if the email is sent or not. When I try to forward email from my sent item to another contact, "Mail" tries to download all the attachments. Why should you do that? Just send those attachments from the cloud. No need to download those files into my computers. You cannot select more than one email at once. "Shift click" does not work. Its a basic feature which does not work. Make email list width resizable. User should be able to resize the width of the email list. Outlook app from iOS and android is much better than this one. Make it work same way and it will really be cross platform. What I like: Clean and simple user interface. Very easy to add new email accounts.

There has never been a worse mail app

Who approved this for distribution with Windows 10? I can't even count the number of MAJOR flaws in this app. Here are just a few: 1) Conversation View is an abomination and there is no option to turn it off. 2) You can only view messages in the preview pane. You can't open a message to view it in the full window/full screen. 3) No option to view message headers. 4) Can't see more than one email account at a time. 5) Can't 'Select All' to act on multiple messages. 6) Doesn't display the sender's email address in the message list or even when viewing the message. It only shows the senders Display Name. You have to click on the name to view their email address (security risk for many users). 7) No spam filtering. 8) No message handling rules. 9) Can't create new IMAP folders. Seriously, there has never been a worse mail client released by a major software company. Ever.

Excellent, much better than Win8

These apps are HUGE improvements over the ones that come with windows 8. They are fast, fluid, actions are easy to find in the menu, and it works great with touch and mouse. I would love to see the swipe actions brought to the trackpad as well as touch screens in a future update.

Conversation view and updates not good

I can't turn off conversation view and it is not syncing properly to my outlook.com mail. It seems like Microsoft should be able to stay in sync with their own mail service. Menus and interface seem much improved and more intuitive than cryptic Windows 8 mail

Needs s/mime or pgp and unified inbox, but ok

It's basic, but get's the task done. A unified inbox, encryption support, and some better mail management a ala google inbox would be nice. it also needs to be able to derive tasks and appointments from emails (like windows phone 8.1 did using cortana)

Love it!!!

Its so well organized. Love the easy syncing with android. I was able to add my college account on it without the need to input any pop or imap details. Really good interface and the focused section Is something which Gmail should learn from.

Crashes a lot, and lacks many features!

* Does not update! * Can't see notifications of unread emails - feature taken off from windows 8.1 version!
