Re: Windows 10 email problem

Try using a different browser if you can until Comcast and Microsoft get themselves sorted out.  With a new OS there are bound to be glitches.

This might be related to your problem, let me know if this helps.

****************************************************************************

I want to keep everyone updated on my Microsoft Mail App solution.

 

Trying to find the cause for my Microsoft Mail App problems I have done some experiments. I have made a breakthrough that I want to share. I have Norton Anti-Virus 22.5.2.15

 

I have DISABLED Norton Firewall (permanently) and then did a restart. The restart reactivated Windows Firewall, I double checked it at Control Panel > Windows Firewall.

Because I have several email accounts I sent myself 3 emails and early indications are that this solves NOTIFICATION SOUNDS, BANNERS, LIVE TILE DISPLAY and SLOW EMAIL DELIVERY. I will know more later today. I will keep everyone updated.

Of my three email experiments, my mail app live tile displayed incoming email, also I got sound and banner notifications.

If your Anti-Virus controls your Firewall (as Norton from Comcast does) you might consider doing what I have done. If you have any results (positive or negative) PLEASE POST A REPLY.
