    I've noticed that having the Windows 10 mail app running on my surface pro3 nearly always results in the laptop running hot and causing the fan to kick in at its maximum speed.

    If I close the app then things return to normal after about 30 seconds.

    Looking through the TaskManager the culprit seems to be the SVCHOST process that is running in the background consuming about 10% of the CPU.

    Has anyone else noticed similar behaviour and if so have you managed to do anything to resolve it ?

    Is your mail configured IMAP. How many accounts?

    The G-Mail account would also normally be IMAP. IMAP accounts spend a lot of time checking to see what needs to be sent and received, (syncing), the more that there is, the more time it spends and the more difficult it is. Without deleting some of the mail or moving it to an off-line file you may need to deal with it as it is.

    The old uninstall and reinstall seems to have sorted the overheat. Thanks for your help Leeshor
