If You’re Still Using Windows Mail on Windows 10, Here’s a Heads Up
Just a heads up.. I installed Fall Creators Edition today for Windows 10, and it completely wipes out Windows Mail program and it cannot be fixed or reset. This is the time to change over to the Thunderbird mail program, so you still have time to save any mail/contacts and transfer them from Windows Mail. Once you update to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709), you won’t be able to access anything in Windows Mail.
Please note: The Windows Mail program that we refer to in this post is the Windows Mail program that replaced Outlook Express and came with Windows Vista. It could be modified to work on Windows 7, Windows 8x and Windows 10 and many people are still using it on Windows 10.
It does not refer to the Windows Mail app that comes with Windows 10 or Windows Live Mail. If you’re still using Windows Live Mail, keep in mind that it has reached the end of its life cycle and no longer supports Microsoft accounts and will no longer be getting security updates, features updates or fixes. You use Windows Live Mail at your own risk.
