Windows 10 comes with many changes and various settings. E-mail notifications for the Mail application were disabled by default for a strange reason during my installation. You can see a notification in the Notification and Action Center, but you may not receive notification for each new email. However, you can customize and configure email and other notifications based on your preferences and receive notification for each email you receive in your inbox. You can also set email notifications and action alerts for a specific email account or for multiple accounts.
