Windows 10: No account shown in mail add an account

    No account shown in mail add an account


    I'm using W10 mail (everything is up to date) and when I try to add a mail account I see the "choose an account" window but it's empty. I currently have no mail account that has been added.

    I tried to uninstall mail, reinstall it with Microsoft store but this changed nothing. Choose an account windows is still empty. Where's the problem ? What can I do ?

    Thanks J Guy

    I don't use Windows Mail but a question could be "Are you logging into the computer using a Local Account or Microsoft Account?".

    You may have found something .... The defective account (not able to choose mail account) is a Microsoft one. My other user account is a Local one and windows Mail is perfectly working. No being able to add mail account in Microsoft account is quite strange.

    If I go through settings, account, Mail accounts and apps (my system is french and my translation may not be the english wordings), windows is searching and nothing happens even after 15 minutes. So it looks like something is missing somewhere.

    Thanks J Guy

    Yes, a corrupted profile can cause problems.
