    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.

    yes
    and i don't remember because i used PWgen to generate ,25 charatecters
    is there a way to bypass the login password like with w7 and w8?
    but i don't remember any switch in the w10 mail

    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.
