    Hello drugo,

    It sounds like you selected to switch to a Microsoft account by mistake while setting up the Mail app.

    You can use the tutorial below to switch back to a local account.

    That is it. It's asking you for the password of your Microsoft account which will be the same password used for your email account.

    You'll have to reset your Microsoft password then online at Microsoft using OPTION THREE. When your PC is connected to the internet, it'll sync the new password to it.
