    Cannot add any accounts to Mail, Calendar or People apps


    When I try to add an account to the Mail, Calendar or People apps I get a "Something went wrong" error, code 0x80070422.

    I have run sfc /scannow, DISM /cleanup-image etc, tried stopping and starting the credential manager and setting it to start automatically, but no luck.

    I came across a fix for the TP that involved using powershell to remove the package and then reinstall it from the store, but when I run this it appears to complete correctly but the apps remain installed. I also tried removing them as per this and then reinstalling them, but the problem remains.

    Has anyone got any idea what's going on here? I really, really don't want to refresh as I've spent several days getting this set up!

    Apps - Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    That was part of the reinstalling command I mentioned, and unfortunately didn't fix the problem.

    Well, apparently the fix was to enable OneDrive (I has previously disabled it by doing this), disable synchronizing with an internet time server in the Date and Time settings (Why?!) then add the account. Now it all works.

    Don't you just love being a beta tester on a supposedly "finished" product like Windows 10?

    Your workaround steps ended my 4 hours of misery trying to get this "wonderful" mail app working on a friends PC...
    It's concerning that months down the track from your post and I am seeing this on a fully updated machine.

    THANK YOU. I have been searching for a solution. Just reversed that fix you mentioned and it's fixed now.
