Two important updates for Outlook Mail and Wi-Fi released for Windows 10 build 10130

Two important updates have been released for users already on Windows 10 build 10130, both affect Outlook Mail and Wi-Fi. There's an alternative update for those still on an earlier build, that fixes the Outlook Mail sync issue before upgrading to 10130.

Gabe Aul made the announcement via Twitter following various reports of issues with Outlook Mail not syncing. And the descriptions for those updates - which do not require a reboot - are below.

Summary
