Just about everyone has an email address or email ID these days, and about 3 million emails are sent every second. Most of us spend a considerable amount of time each day checking and responding to emails.
Most of the current desktop and mobile operating systems ship with their own email client or app to help users manage email account(s) without having to launch web browsers. Windows 10 also offers a built-in app email managing app called Mail.
Mail app for Windows 10
The Mail app in Windows 10 was first introduced with Windows 8 as a basic and touch-friendly email app, and it has been significantly improved in Windows 10.
The built-in Mail app supports all popular accounts, including Office 365, Outlook.com, Exchange, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and many other popular accounts.
The app sports the traditional three-pane interface and offers a good amount of settings to personalize it. Like classic desktop email clients, you can access all controls and options using keyboard shortcuts as well. Right from the Mail app, you can access folders list, create and rename new folders, read and respond to IRM messages, insert/change signature, and attach files. And finally, it supports offline mode as well.
While the Mail app is not feature-rich as Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird, it has most of the features available in Microsoft’s Windows Live Mail. The Mail app is perfect for most home and business users.
Like other built-in apps, the Mail app can also be removed from your PC. If you’re having some issues with the Mail app and want to get it reinstalled, you can proceed to our how to reinstall the Mail app in Windows 10 guide for detailed instructions.
