    I recently had my hard drive replaced and the tech installed Win10 on my old trusty Win8.1. As I was entering my email accounts and PWs all went well until the machine checked for mail. All my accounts, except one. were OK, one would not display the email. I went to check the settings and it wouldn't let me enter the PWs to allow Win10 to open and retrieve mail. It just says "Focused."

    You are correct ploder. It's not strictly for Windows 10, but for Outlook (and I guess now Mail). The Focus option is to combine all the same subject emails to one line for convenience, so you wouldn't have to go through the whole inbox to find all the related emails.
