Windows 8 / 8.1 mail client stopped working

I have run Windows 8 on my Intel PC since it came out.  I did take the Windows 8.1 upgrade.  I have experienced issues with some folders not syncing over the last six months or so, but now the native Mail app stopped working entirely.  

I can invoke the app but no new mail loads.  I can press the Sync button, no joy.  I can start a New Email, compose and send, but it never arrives.

Mail comes in fine for the same Windows account on my laptop.  Issue is only on my desktop PC.

You can uninstall and, after a reboot, reinstall the Mail App...that should fix the problem.

Uninstalling the Mail app does not lose any information, the information is not stored inside the app - it's stored on the server.

The problem just took care of itself.  I did nothing and it started working.

I never got to this point, the problem took care of itself.
