    I was using Windows 8.1 Lumia Denim from Nokia 730 since last 4 Months. Win 8.1 had an option, Settings-> Email+Accounts. From this I configured Gmail, and hence I was getting notifications for any google mails. Even I could add my GMail Calender to the outlook calender as well. Thus mail and calender notifications for my Google account was coming regularly. But, after opted for this Win 10 Technical Preview, I am unable to get the option from where to configure Gmail account. I badly need the Google Mail and Calender notifications.

    Go into the settings of the Outlook application and add the account there.

    I think its a known issue that the mail and calender notifications are not working properly with the Win 10 TP

    Thanks for the reply. Notification may not be working correctly. But, is there any option to congifure my Google Account with my Nokia 730 having Win 10 TP. I have no problem if the notifications are not coming, probably Microsoft will fix it in coming updates. However, if there is no option to configure a Google Account then I think it's a serious issue.

    The part Email + Accounts does not exist anymore in Windows 10 because you don't configure the mail accounts like that anymore. As hotphil is saying Email accounts are now managed through the Outlook app. Like in Outlook on the desktop office.

    Exactly - thats the point and thats why I like the direction of W10TP for both desktop and phone. The best example is the settings app. Make the width of the settings app in Window 10 TP as small as possible and you get the exact same UI as you have an phone.

    If all the email settings and ability to add email accounts are only done via the Outlook app, why give you the option to uninstall it with absolutely no way to get it back? I deleted Outlook because it wasn't working properly thinking a re-install might fix my issues. Now I'm stuck with no way to add emails at all.

    Just like everything else they thought - how to manage things not in one place but in hundred of different places and they removed it from the settings into each app separately. You can find it for example in People app and Outlook mail app I settings. If you use the people legacy app you can still reach it in those settings though!

    Not sure why you're getting defensive. I know it's a preview... with bugs. But the only way for them to fix it is to report it to them and bit$h about it. Which I've done.

    Its totally fine that you report this bug and I am not getting defensive - whatever you want to say with that. But when you describe a bug as a thing that works like this by design like "This is crap because MS removed the ability to reinstall the app" it just has to be said that this is not the intended behavior.

    Settings -> Personalization -> Background -> CHOOSE YOU PICTURE -> Browse
    Initially in Win 8.1 Lumia Denim we had some Default Background images, which settled as a transparent wallpaper at Home Screen.
    In WIN 10TP, we can set our own customized images as background.. transparent as well. But, unlike the previous version the default backgrounds are not yet given.
    I really liked some default background images !!! :D

    Who are you quoting? I didn't say that. Or did you just create a quote to validate your defensive stance?

    Outlook is an OS based app and if you delete OS based apps, you cannot install it back.

    Like the previous mail app in Windows Phone, 8.1, the outlook also might not have option to delete the app in the future builds.

    For now its a hard reset.

    Wow. Just loving Windows Phone 10, I posted the whole of this post using voice dictation on Windows Phone 10.

    You said that in you post #10. Not with the same words but with that meaning. I will not discuss this any further with you.

    Alternatively, you can search for some default backgrounds on bing or google and download onto your phone.
