Many of us prefer using mail apps on our Windows 10 PC instead of logging through web. While it’s pretty handy to use the apps, you may come across this error code – 0x8000000b when you are try to send an email. So, when you press the Send button, your email tries to connect to the email server automatically for the server settings, but then the error pops up.
This error mainly arises due to syncing problem. Whether you prefer using a Gmail app or Yahoo Mail app, you will have to set them up first in the Window 10 email app. And, then during the configuration, you may come across this error code – 0x8000000b.
