    Mail, Calendar, Contacts and Messaging App Problem.


    After last update all 4 apps from this package stopped working. I click on the tile, splash screen appears, and at the moment the loading animation should show itself, app returns to metro UI. It's still in background but when I try to restore it cycle begins again (splash screen -> metro). I've tried reinstalling app, clearing cache, even changing drivers. What can be the problem?

    Hello Veristeron,

    Make sure that the apps are completely closed, then check each item in the tutorial below while testing to see if the apps work after each.
