Windows Mail: Windows 10 includes enhanced automatic email notification service to automatically notify you of new emails and manage all accounts in one place. Once you add any of your email accounts to the Windows 10 Mail application, which is a free built-in system mail function, it regularly checks the mailbox and automatically sends notifications about incoming emails, which you can read them, and you can send an immediate response.

The comfort mail is displayed on the task bar as a white envelope icon. If you click on the icon, the Mail function built in Microsoft Windows will appear. In a small, light-gray circle indicates the number of emails received.

Windows Mail

Quick tip: On the right side of the tray, down near the clock, a small pop-up window notifies the contents of the letter so you can decide, read if it is important, or wait while reading the received message.

The new Microsoft Windows 10 Mail Embedded feature supports Outlook, Exchange and Office 365 accounts, but is a separate application.

Disadvantages:

  1. Attention! If you connect a Microsoft account (Outlook.com, Hotmail, MSN, or Windows Live), the system automatically takes this account into the Windows Mail application, but this account Cannot Be Deleted.
  2. Note: I added my Windows Live account, but I could not delete it, just by reinstalling Windows. Since then I have not added Outlook.com, Hotmail, MSN, Windows Live, just Free Gmail, Freemail, Citromail.

Advantage:

  1. If you select + Add account, and add a new, instead of Windows platform, for example: Gmail, Free Mail, Citromail, or other addresses as a secondary account, they can be deleted at any time you want. Below is described how to add or delete these accounts
