    The mail app doesn't seem to run in the background. If I turn on my computer and I have mail, it does not alert me. It also doesn't alert me if I;m working on my computer and receive an email.

    yes, I forgot to mention that. I think I am going to try reinstalling it again. I have already tried wsreset.exe

    Do you know where we can refresh licenses like we used to in 8.1?

    Same here.

    1. Lenovo notebook, upgrade from W8.1 to W10 via Windows Update -> notification works like a charm, live tile is working.

    2. Asus notebook, uprade via WU and then clean install -> no notifications, no live tile.

    I discovered there is no way to reinstall the mail app. I guess we are stuck waiting for a system update.

    One thing I noticed is quiet hours gets enabled on its own in action center. I have to disable it frequently.

    I do not get notifications even when the mail app is running... I searched the Internet, many people have this problem. I think you're right, we have to wait for an update.

    Also, there's no "Mail" in "background apps" :-(

    BTW: Yes, you can reinstall "W10 apps" like Mail:

    Nope. I'm afraid. It took me too long to adapt the system to my needs ;-)

    same here. There is an update coming this week per MS. I hope it includes a fix.

    someone from MS was on reddit and said the fix for the mail app would come as an app update and not a system update. She claimed they were testing the fix already.

    Mine hasn't run in the background at all... Facebook app does with no problems, waiting for the fix myself. The mail app is not even listed in background apps.

    I have the same problem. Mail does not show up in background apps. Neither does Weather.

    This is very frustrating.

    Edit: So despite not appearing in Background Apps, my Weather tile is now updating... Not sure what to make of this. **Did an OS Reset which might have made a difference.

    Same here... I never noticed the weather app not updating the live tile, but still not showing in background apps. . Not sure what's going on with it.

    Is your mail app working normally? When you delete in mail app does it also delete on phone instantly? Does mail and weather show up in background settings?

    I was excited to see the update for the mail app today, but much to my dismay, it did not fix the problem for me either.
