Microsoft rolls out an update for Mail and Calendar on Windows 10
Microsoft has rolled out an update for Mail and Calendar on Windows 10, and according to reports from a number of readers we're looking at some awesome fixes. There's also a changelog attached to this release, so at least we have some idea as to what to expect after installing the update.
While it appears to be quite the minor update, we'll take anything when it comes to addressing crashes and whatnot. Here's what the full changelog reveals on the Windows Store:
- Added an option to disable grouping messages by conversation
- Saving more Mail and Calendar settings across app updates
- Fixed top crashes and other bugs
You can download the update by hitting the store link below. Hit us up if you notice anything new in this version.

I used the previous build of W10M on my Lumia 820 - and thought it was horrible (design aesthetic as well as performance).
1. The mail app is a REAL mail app, not like on WP8.1 where I could only attach pictures. This alone makes the beta worthwhile IMHO.
2. Decoupling apps from the core OS has made rapid updates to key apps possible - notice how fast Photos and Outlook mail have grown over a relatively short period. Even after RTM updates would keep coming - I'm ready to bet that the Photos and Mail app would probably be the best on any mobile platform within the next year. Same applies to Office mobile and apps such as Groove etc.
3. Groove music is way better than xbox music on WP8.1 IMHO
4. The settings menu is super organized, it even comes with a search box. On WP8.1, this was a struggle :-)
5. Overall look and feel is coming together rather nicely. Not that WP8.1 wasn't good, but WM10 seems like an evolved, more mature version to me
6. Universal apps are the future!
There are other little things here and there, but overall I think WM10 will turn out beautifully, especially on current gen hardware designed specifically for it. Good times! :-)
I'll perhaps leave it a couple more builds before trying again.
As I mentioned earlier, it is really quite good - definitely not yet RTM quality but good enough for me, and I'm using a comparatively weak 640. The new (updated) mail app for me is one of the key factors, as well as Groove music. I was always stressed with the WP8.1 mail app not being able to attach any type of file and Xbox music was just not it. Factor is some universal apps already working and this is pure win!

It can't be both. Either it's a big update, or it's a small one.
- carddav Meh.
But: no app update history for app store apps.
How can I know if the app has been updated?
