The Mail and Calendar application is probably more used by casual users than Outlook 2016, and this because it is easy to start and use because there are no bells and whistles. If you only want to retrieve and send emails, the Outlook experience is not necessary.

There may come a time when you need to print an important email, and since the mail and calendar application can print, it would make sense to use it instead of starting Outlook 2016.

OK, so you started the mail application, and to your surprise, when you try to print, you get an error saying:

Nothing has been sent for printing.

Windows 10 Mail and Calendar application does not print

1] Check for updates

Sometimes a complex problem just needs a simple update to fix it, and this may be the case here. You see, if other applications or services are able to send print data to your printer, then the mail and calendar application is defective.

To check for an update, launch Microsoft Store, search Mail and Calendar, and click the Update button, if available.

2] Reinstalling the mail and calendar application

Uninstalling the mail and calendar application is not an easy task. Microsoft has not made it easy for users to remove some of its core applications from Windows 10, and this is a problem because not everyone has an advantage for them.

To delete the application, press Win + S, type Windows Powershell, right-click the application when it appears and select Run as administrator. If Windows Powershell is running, type the following and press Enter.

Get-AppxPackage *Windowscommunicationsapps* | Remove-AppxPackage

This should remove the mail and calendar application from your Windows 10 computer.

The last step is to install the email and calendar application from the Microsoft Store.

3] Update printer driver

If the above solutions do not solve your problem, we recommend that you update the printer driver.

Press Windows + S, type Device Manager, start it from the search page, then search for printer devices. Expand it, locate your printer, right click and select Update Driver software. Return to the email application and try printing a document again.

4] Reset mail and calendar application

Open Windows 10 settings > Applications > Applications and features > Locate mail and calendar application > Advanced settings > Reset.

5] Using third-party applications or Outlook on the web

Nothing works? No problem at all. You can use a third-party email application, connect your Outlook account and use all available print functions. Or visit, login with your account information and print via your web browser.
