pop3 Email account not shown after quick setup

    Win 10 Mail (getting past blue Accounts set up screen)


    Pop3 Email account set up but not seen.....How do I get past the big blue Accounts screen to use email that I set up?

    I did a quick set up on a pop3 mail account in WIN 10. It is nowhere to be seen and only the blue colored Accounts screen is visible. I can set up more email accounts but can't use them. ?? If I try to set up the email account again (quick or manually) I get "account already exists". I'm stuck at the main blue colored set up screen. Since the email app won't actually load I can not get to the account settings to modify or delete the mail account to start over with a new setup. Anybody seen this before? How do I get past the big blue Accounts screen to use email that I set up? Thanks.

    I'm having the same issue. I input my information in the "Advanced Setup" as Pop3, and it accepted it. After clicking "Sign In", it said I was done. Then took me back to the blue Accounts screen. When I tried setting it up again, it gave me the "Account already exists" message and puts me back at the blue Accounts screen. It won't let me click the "Ready to go" button.


    I fixed it. You need to go into:

    All Settings
    Go to Privacy (Location, camera)
    Location: Location ON, Mail and Calendar ON
    Contacts: Mail and Calendar ON
    Calendar: Mail and Calendar ON
    Email: Mail and Calendar ON

    Doing this enabled me to get past the blue Accounts screen and access my mail. HOORAY!
