Hi guys, I upgraded to windows 10 recently and loving it, but the mail app is crap compared to W8.1 
It doesn't show that I have new mail on the tile.
And I have having to click accounts to go to my other email accounts. 
I'm also not getting notifications even though it's turned on.
Any recommendations for a new mail app?

Now I'm a super fly!

Personally, I've been using Pegasus since god-knows when. Not that anyone but the ISP sends email to that address any more - everything goes to gmail, and that gets read with a browser.

If you can still get it to work, windows live mail is a relatively light-weight free email program that does what you want and also has a unified 'new mail' view that collects from every mail account.

Found it easier to use that - mostly for the last feature - than retrain my parents.

I have got Windows Live Mail to work in Windows 10 though it is not listed as compatible.
