    The problem is that if you uninstall chrome some of the other apps stop working (twitter etc); any idea when the this is to be fixed?
    Yes agree, Twitter and Scribble.....so far stop working but I need mail more than those.

    Wow, if our best course of action is to ask Google to update something in one of its core apps, we have a real problem.

    This is something HTC needs to fix and fix it soon!

    It’s Chrome and Android System Webview. HTC Mail is not the culprit. Rollback Chrome.

    Sorry. Redux.

    Disabling Chrome and installing Chrome Canary fixed it on my HTC 10. Unfortunately the phone itself is still rebooting, just not when I reply to emails. Between HTC and Google I'm wondering who screwed up this otherwise great phone.

    I had the same problem with my HTC 9. I found that if I UNINSTALL Chrome,(i can't really uninstall it but i go to the previous version) the problem goes away.

    The only problem is, because Chrome & Goggle are both part of HTC, the Chrome App automatically "updates" every night, so every morning, I have to go in and uninstall/ go to the earlier version and then my email works fine again.

    It's annoying but until Goggle/Chrome/HTC comes out with a FIX, that all I can do.

    Hope this helps.

    There have been some recent updates to Chrome and Android System Webview -- has anyone tried re-updating and seeing if the problem persists?

    Henrik - Thank you!! I would have factory reset the whole phone and eventually got back to this point and would have lost my mind. F U Google

    FYI this also seems to have resolved the Google Play Store crashing, and the fingerprint sensor on my HTC U11 refusing to unlock the phone.

    From glancing at the web today, HTC updated the Mail app on 28 March and fixed the issue with Chrome.

    Minor problem, I go to Google Play to update the HTC Mail app and it is not showing under My Apps! Going to Google Play (web), the HTC Mail update shows up and is showing "This app is incompatible with your device."

    My device is the HTC One M9, model HTC6535lvw (Verizon model). WTF????

    Same here, also with the same model of HTC M9, also Verizon.

    For a brief, shining moment this morning my husband's HTC Mail worked alongside Chrome but then the phone received another Chrome update and HTC Mail began crashing again while trying to write a new email message.

    So we're back to the workaround and hoping (again) for a quick fix.

    I had a long chat with HTC yesterday. They have elevated the issue to their Special Projects Team, who will be contacting me next week.

    In the meantime, I downloaded the HTC Mail app update (28 March) to my phone directly (Download HTC Mail 10.70.1031252 apk - APK.CO). Executing the download (and ignoring all the warnings about non-compatibility) installed the latest update (10.70.1031252). I've updated Chrome (also turning back on auto-updating) and everything is working fine.

    So long HTC. Playing around with the HTC Mail APK for the new version, it reveals that with this update, HTC has specified that the minimum PlatformBuildVersionName = 8.0.0.

    Unless you have somehow been able to upgrade your phone to OREO (8.0), auto updating of the Mail App will never occur.

    My forcing the install has worked without any issues so far, but the future looks dim!

    Good news. HTC pushed through a Mail update earlier today that fixed the problem on our M9s. So thanks for contacting them. Sounds like it did the trick.
