Once Windows 10 Mail has opened, choose the ‘Settings’ icon (the cog) from the menu located at the bottom of the app.


Choose ‘Manage Accounts’

Then simple choose ‘Manage Accounts’ from the settings menu that appears on the right hand side of the screen.


Choose ‘Add account’

You will be presented with some new form fields to fill in.

Firstly, enter your full e-mail address in the field labelled ‘Account name’. (such as joe@succeed.net)
