    Just yesterday my Windows 10 Outlook mailbox started having synch issues with GMail. A few new messages get through to the in-box; most didn't. Has anyone else seen this issue recently and know how to fix?
    I had something similar. My settings always are "out of date".

    Both my SP3 and laptop have this message now. So annoying. I can't believe they still haven't fixed this.

    Same here. It sucks!
    The only way around it that I have found is that you have to delete your gmail account then re add it to the mail.....

    I hate the new mail system, miss the old vista windows mail where you could see everything at once... damn Tablets ruined the world..

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and my emails wouldn't sync. I've tried everything but this worked for me:
    Go into email app.
    Settings.
    Account.
    Click on Account.
    Change mailbox sync settings from 3 days to for ever.
    This then updates all folders with your saved emails.
    Downside is it brings through all your emails which you would previously have deleted but at least the folders are up to date.
    Good luck.

    So... For the last months or so I have had this problem in Windows 10 where the mail program simply doesn't show any mail (old or new). I had the same problem back in windows 8 but that resolved itself or soem reason.

    Anyway, I finally found a fix around it for my part so I figured I would post how I did it here for anyone who might find this thread looking for answers.

    This is what I did:
    1. Go to Start -> Settings -> Privacy -> Email
    2. If "Let apps access and send email" is set to off then turn it on and see if it fixes your problem. If it's already on then pocedd to step 3.
    3. Deactivate "Let apps access and send email", and open up Windows mail (you should not see a single account pop up there) and then close it again.
    4. go back to Start -> Settings -> Privacy -> Email and reactivate "Let apps access and send email".
    5. Open up windows mail again and it should be working (it did for me anyway).

    I'm not saying it's going to work for everyone, but for me this effectively reset the email settigns and made it work again. Hopefully it will help someone.

    What worked for me to-get gmail and live accounts to work .under windows mail . I had to log in to my gmail account via a web browser once logged in go to the Sign-in & security tab scroll down to the bottom and select less secure app's to the on position , now all my accounts in windows mail sync up . also you may have to log into a live account via browser and turn on imap and pop setting one account had pop turned off on my live account under settings.

    Tried everything suggested in this thread and nothing is working. The mail app on my SP4 hasn't synched since Feb 27th. I have two Gmail accounts (one for work) and a outlook account. None are synching. When I try to go into the manage accounts options, it doesn't even open when clicked.

    I use outlook mail in the native app in windows 10 and was having a problem getting the Mail app to sync but nothing I tried would work. One day I tried changing the DNS address on my router and immediately after that I started receiving email notifications from the app.

    If you are familiar with changing your DNS address to the google address on your router or computer than I would suggest giving that a try.

    The solution given by microsoft is simple

    Open settings-Go to Privacy and if email is disabled then windows 10 and outlook sync will not be there. Now try to enable the email in Privacy setting. you will see that outlook is open and syn.

    Email syncing is all about the email provider or Email client not Windows 10. No I understand the Mail App in Windows 10 comes with Windows 10 but it's still a separate app like all email clients.

    I have a similar problem on windows 10 pc, tablet and phone. My outlook account doesn't sync, but gmail does. I figured it was a problem that has to do with me being connected to a proxy server. Nothing I can do about that (school) but is there some way to bypass this. Works fine when connected to a different network, The error message I get is "Something went wrong. We're having a problem connecting to m.hotmail.com. Try again later" and the error code is 0x85010008
