Windows 10 and mail clients

PostPosted by Bjorn Holmgren » Thu Feb 04, 2016 6:01 am

I have been testing WIN 10 on my laptop for close to a month.
And prepared to roll back to 8.1 with classic desktop.
Main reason : Mail client live.com hangs when updating calendar.
Even after recommended update this renders this mail service less than useful.
The new mail client in Win 10 seems to me to be less than professional.
I can find no advice from Microsoft as to how to deal with this.
Seems they want me to switch to the new mail app which also has the calendar.
This seems to be where the clash happens and should be an easy fix.
I have waited for a fix but no luck so far.
Any advice here from the forum?

I use Fossamail, which is a fork of Thunderbird. I only use it at home, with Windows 10.

https://www.fossamail.org/

Its written by the same guy that has Palemoon (fork of Firefox).

Windows 10 works great at home. Make sure you check the 30+ privacy settings and the update settings that use your computer bandwidth to send updates to others.

Tom, thanks,
I was unaware of these independent mail clients out there.
Fossa looks like I could get used to it.
Still have to check out all the settings, but it looks like I could use it.
I will stay with Win 10 now, on the laptop, to see how it develops.
Again, thanks,
Bjorn

I'm having issues also. Mail is one of them.
This is why they gave an open call to test Windows 10. They did the same thing when Win 95 was just about to be released.
