This is for Windows Vista, 7 and 2008 Server where the Control Panel layout was redesigned.

This is one think I barelly need but when I do I need a awfull lot of time to figure out.
The last time I needed this was because I had a misconficured Exchange account on Outlook 2007 and the application just wouldn’t start.

If, for this or other reason, you need to access your mail account setting from the Control Panel just follow these simple but hidden steps.

1. Open Control Panel (duh!)

  1. Change the "View By" setting to Large Icons 
    • This Action will reveal hidden icons on the Control Panel.
  2. One of them is the one you want: Mail (32-bit).
