Windows 10 includes a new Mail app which is simplistic and allows you to send and receive e-mail from multiple accounts. The app supports both Light and Dark modes for its user interface. Its Dark mode is greatly improved starting with Windows 10 version 1903, allows applying the dark or light theme for an individual mail dialog.
Windows 10 comes with a Universal app, "Mail". The app is intended to provide basic email functionality to Windows 10 users. It supports multiple accounts, comes with preset settings to quickly add mail accounts from popular services, and includes all the essential functionality to read, send and receive emails.
