Windows 10 Mail app notifications are not working on your PC? This tutorial will show you how to fix them once and for all.

Windows 10 comes with a lightweight Mail app, which is designed to provide you direct access to your email account(s), without having to go through a web browser. The Mail app hosts a notification setting that affords you the opportunity to see incoming emails as they troop in. This way, you get to see an email (as a notification pop-up) the moment it enters, without having to open the Mail app.

However, there have been cases of the Mail app notifications not working, in which case, users don’t get notified of incoming emails. To retrieve/access received emails, in this case, you’d have to go through the stress of opening the Mail app.

In any case, we have come up with a set of solutions to resolve the issue.

I have had this problem before but uninstalling and reinstalling the mail app fixed it but since creators update it doesn’t fix it.
