Hi Keith,

Welcome to the Forum.

You ought to be able to remove the built-in Mail app, then reinstall it without losing any personal mail, however you may need to set up password and imap protocols again for your email account.

  • Right-click on Start and select Windows PowerShell (Admin) then,
  • Click yes when prompted by the User Account Control
  • In the Administrator: Windows PowerShell console type or copy & paste the following:
Code:
Get-AppxPackage *windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage
Press Enter key to execute. This will remove the built-in Windows 10 Mail app & Calendar​
  • Close the console and any other open programs, then restart computer
  • When signed-in again, open the Windows PowerShell (Admin) again, and type or copy & paste the following command:
Code:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"
Press Enter key to execute. This command will install any built-in app you have removed previously, including the Windows 10 Mail & Calendar app.​
  • Close the console when done, then open your Mail app, and check your settings are correct then sync to allow it to grab your personal files and any new emails.
