  • Thank you Mr. David for your reply. let me follow these steps I hope your suggestion will help to solve this issue. Last day I have contacted email support number then a tech guy picked up my call, he told me your email is perfectly working fine, the main issue is with your Windows 10 mail app. 

    And really email is working fine in another browser and I am able to send and receive emails via a web browser but when I am trying to open my email in the mail app then I am getting this issue.
