Thank youCan you press the windows key + X and click on control panelThen type in Mail and click on it when it appears.Then click on show profile.Then click on Add profile and enter in your email details.Once done and complete, set this profile as your default profile via the dropdown box on that page.Once done, try to open outlook and tell me if it then opens. I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please. Else let me know the results please.
