After upgrading to Windows 10 you may get an error sending Email via SMTP either from the inbuilt app or outlook.
In the case of outlook the test connection button works but real emails fail.
It does not affect all ISPs, for me smtp.blueyonder.co.uk failed but smtp.virginmedia.com was OK.
The solution is :-
Right click start button
Select Command Prompt (Administrator)
Type sfc /scannow and let it complete
Reboot your PC
If you have problems with a build of windows
technical insider preview you can easily go back to the previous build.
But having done this, how to you re-apply the new build once you have sorted the problem and you are ready to try the new one again. The version you have regressed from will not reappear in “update & security”.
You can rebuild from scratch from an ISO or course, but what if you want to keep any old style apps and settings.
The answer is :-
Look at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\Applicability\RecoveredFrom in there is a dword value of the version you have regressed from, simply delete or rename it reboot and off you go.

After 35 years working for Wigan Council I am now striking out on my own.
At Wigan I was the chief technical ‘guru’ across most of the ICT field whilst leading a team that achieved great things on a tiny budget.
Me with Dave Pearce .
Me with Sonya and a ‘my little pony’.
Me with Alison Hughes, here she is saying nice things about me whilst quoting SCI-FI and Frederick the Great.
