Default Windows 10 Mail + Gmail = no bueno

There is starting to be a few articles on the problem, but nothing official from Microsoft. It looks like a recent update to the Windows 10 Mail program (not Outlook) has broken something with Gmail accounts. Messages sent from Win 10 Mail seem to disappear from the Sent folder, and can't really be found anywhere. I have had some luck finding most of them in the Spam folder on

This problem has been driving me nuts for weeks, I have a Gmail account for my business and have been struggling to ensure that my correspondence with clients is actually being sent. Figured I would give the heads up for anyone else who might be seeing weird behavior.

Why not just use the Gmail web interface? I find it works best that way anyways. Google uses some of its own protocols they've invented for things like tags (instead of folders) that don't sync with most desktop clients properly.

If you do want a desktop client, I'd suggest looking at Mozilla Thunderbird. It is far better than Windows 10 Mail.

Yeah I switched to the web client a long time ago and abandoned any email desktop app, it's easier.
Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position.
