Windows 10: Unable to add any accounts in Mail and Calendar Apps

    Unable to add any accounts in Mail and Calendar Apps


    I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on a Sony VAIO laptop. I'm working through some issues but the one that is really annoying me is the inability to add any accounts to the Mail and Calendar apps. I have tried adding my Microsoft account as well as Exchange and other types of accounts. No matter what I do, I get the "Something went wrong" error message. Is anyone else having this problem, and is there a solution? Thanks.

    Hi StrayKatt,
    Like you I've just upgraded from Win 7.
    I currently use Outlook 2013 and sync with Gmail so I thought I'd have a look at the built in Win 10 apps. I'm unable to add an account from any of the apps (Mail, Calendar or People) or from Settings.
    I click on + Add An Account and absolutely nothing happens.
    I have no idea what's going on so, like you, I'd appreciate some advice.

    I went into the Settings for the Email program or icon on my Surface Pro 3 and deleted my Exchange Account. I then re-installed the account from scratch and all my emails and calendar items starting coming in to the newly reinstalled account.
