    Seriously, one month after RTM and I still can't add Gmail account directly, by selecting it from the account list shows the same error message since 2 months.
    BUT, even if I add as a POP/IMAP account the app can't sync properly sends the email two or 3 times etc.
    I'm starting to think they intentionally don't want to fix this or they just simply don't care...

    Gmail IMAP works fine here - try disabling 2-step verification at the Gmail website if you have it enabled, or generate app-specific password.

    Why use crappy apps on anything but a phone? Use a real program.

    The app has a great deal of potential...if only they could get it to function as intended. Behavior is extremely erratic: for brief periods it syncs perfectly, accompanied by notifications; for the most part it has to be manually synced...a tedious and frustrating process

    tried groove music and it would play sometimes or I would have to right click and choose play to make it play,
    I believe the apps need more work they're in their infancy

    you have to configure sync settings, just enter in Mail app options -> Accounts and check the sync settings there.

    This. I didn't know this was the reason until I tried to add my friend's Gmail account and couldn't. After reading other stories I found the solution.
    But yeah, the Mail app is still somewhat buggy, but still useful. I wish I had an universal inbox, but I guess that's not to be at the moment.

    It was a heap in 8, it was a heap in 8.1 and it's still a heap in 10

    There is a reason they are called crApps ;)

    My issue has nothing to do with 2step verification.
    First of all I can't even start to add the Gmail account if I select "Google" from the list, I get 0x8007042b as an error message:

    dcee6f89-c846-4158-9e9a-009b51e04aae.jpg

    I added as an IMAP account with an application-specific password, but If I receive an email and read it still does not sync with the server automatically and shows in the browser as an unread email. When I press the sync it works. My sync setting is set to "when items arrive" just like it was with 8/8.1
    These features worked fine with the 8.1 mail app, actually I was abble to add an account even with the 2-step verification enabled.
    The new mail app has so much potential, it's a shame bugs like these make it unusable.

    App that came since Windows 8 is still in their infancy? Or is Microsoft very busy working on ways to track us and get our data

    I haven't tried it with multiple alias accounts, but a quick search indicates that, unlike the Win 8.1 mail app, selecting the
    sending account in the composition window isn't possible at the moment in Win 10. Of course, choosing the sending account or identity is possible with a client like Thunderbird, which works fine in 10.
