Re: Windows mail with NVDA usable?


I don't know what problem you had.  Thunderbird has a good utility for automatically finding information needed to create accounts if you furnish usernames and passwords. 

I don't know how many people  have the problem of messages being left to pile up on servers, but its something people who use the program should be aware of and check when they first start using it.

Since I have the problem, others should check when they first start using the program to see if they do.  I can't generalize from my experience and I may have written as though I was.  But what I meant to say is that since I have this behavior, people should check.

What problems are you having?  If you are referring to the Mail app, for use with Windows 10 and 11, it is usable, but I think it is a bad idea to use it and I would strongly recommend Thunderbird instead.

I tried using it with GMail and, though deleting messages in the app means they no longer show in the app, they are still left on the server.  Over time, you would have an enormous number of messages left in GMail, I believe still in the inbox.  Wherever they are, they are just taking up space.

Since I only tried the program with GMail, I don't know what might happen with other servers but I wouldn't want to take the chance.

If you still want to try the app, let us know what problems you are having and we can discuss them.  For example, f9 is the command to download messages.

Hi all.

I have tried Windows mail with NVDA and it seems to me, that it is not usable.

Is it really not usable or is that a microsoft app thing. Means, do i have to download it from a different source to get an accessible version?
