How to Find the Mail Icon

If you need to troubleshoot a problem with Microsoft Outlook, the Mail icon in the control panel can be a big help. The Mail icon gives you direct access to many different Outlook settings, which in turn can allow you to determine the exact source of issues ranging from the non-delivery of mail to your inability to find a particular folder.

Sometimes, however, you will open the control panel on your computer, only to find no Mail icon at all. The exact location of, and procedure for finding, the Mail icon depends on the operating system you use. To find the Mail icon on your computer, just follow these steps.
" Click the Start button and choose Control Panel from the menu
" Click the Classic View option in Windows XP if you do not see the Mail icon
" Double-click the User Accounts section if you prefer to use the standard view
" Double-click the User Accounts section if you are using the Windows Vista operating system
" Click View 32-bit Control Panel Items if you are using the Windows Vista 64-bit operating system
" Double-click User Accounts and Family Safety if you are using the Windows 7 operating system
" Click the Search box in Windows 7 and type Mail if you prefer to find the icon that way

Once you have located the Mail icon on the control panel, simply double-click to open it. Once the Mail icon is open, you can scroll through the tabs and settings to troubleshoot Microsoft Outlook and other popular email programs.
