    I read on a Microsoft blog, that there have been several improvements to Windows Mail. Could an insider tell me if this is in any way significant.?

    Can't see anything that knocks my socks off, but.....
    IF you give me some idea as to what to look for, I'd be happy to check it out.
    OR maybe a link to the blog?

    I downloaded 17723 on my insider machine. Downloaded fine but the install was very slow indeed. When it all came up I had to restart to get the conextant sound drivers...a regular thing now.
    Updated Chrome to version 68. Laptop running very slowly with copies of a task System Reporting ... running and using 65% cpu between them. These tasks seemed to be part of Chrome. Deleted them and all is well.

    A quick look and I could see nothing interesting to me in the build but it does look like the release is close and when it happens I'll give up the Insider thing again I think.

    On my Insider machine I started downloading the new build but it is slow, very slow indeed. I have a CPU load of 99% , where Windows Update takes the cake at 55-60% but it still says downloading 2% and does not move on.
    Although Network service runs at 45-50Mbps, the disk itself is only at 10Mbps.

    Wow, downloading just jumped to 75% and climbing. Wonder what took it so long...

    I have experienced that, lately, with the normal cumulative updates (not insiders) I think they have messed up something in the codeing and, although it is downloading, it is not recording it correctly.
