No Mail icon in Control Panel

I’m trying to make a change to my mail profile and I was advised to go to Control Panel-> Mail. However, when I go to Control Panel, there is no Mail icon.

The exact location depends on your version of Windows and your layout settings of Control Panel.

If your Control Panel is in the classic layout, you should see the Mail applet directly in the list of icons.
For a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, the icon would be listed in the “View 32-bit Control Panel Items” section.

If your Control Panel is in category view you can find the Mail applet in;

  • Windows XP: User Accounts
  • Windows Vista: User Accounts
  • Windows Vista 64-bit: Additional Options-> View 32-bit Control Panel Items
  • Windows 7: User Accounts and Family Safety

For Windows Vista and previous, if you have Outlook pinned to the top of your Start Menu there is a much shorter way to reach it;
Start-> right click on the Outlook icon-> Properties

In Windows 7 and Windows Vista (32-bit only), there is also a quick way of finding it by typing “Mail” in the search box in the right top corner of Control Panel.
