    Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app


    Are you sure now you are not mixing the password and the PIN? I checked my previous post and the information told in it is both accurate and valid.

    To put it very short: if you sign in to windows using an MS account Email1@OutlookOrHotmailOrLive.com, and you want to add Email2@OutlookOrHotmailOrLive.com to the Mail app, the PIN asked is the PIN (not the password) for the Email1@OutlookOrHotmailOrLive.com, your current Windows sign-in account.

    Below a live example with screenshots.

    By default a Windows user account has no PIN. It needs to be set up, either when installing Windows or later on if skipped when installing. When set, the PIN for the Windows 10 sign-in is four or more digits long, as the user prefers. In your case if it auto enters after 4 digits, you have a 4 digit PIN. I use a 5 digit PIN, in my case when I add a new Microsoft email account to mail app it auto enters after the 5th digit.

    Here's how it works:

    My Windows sign-in MS account L: @abcdefgh.com is already automatically added to Mail app, later on I have added a second MS account. Now adding a new account L: larry.laffer@abcdefgh.com, I enter this new account's credentials normally:

    When added, the account tells Attention Required. Clicking the account I get the option Fix account selecting it:

    The next dialog is a bit confusing. It asks me to verify that the L: larry.laffer@abcdefgh.com is mine by asking the current Windows 10 sign-in accounts PIN, that of L: @abcdefgh.com

    I enter my Windows sign-in 5 digit PIN for the user account L: @abcdefgh.com, the account I am currently using to sign in to Windows, and now the L: larry.laffer@abcdefgh.com will finally be added to the mail app.

    If you are not sure which PIN you have set up, if you have forgot it, go to your account settings and change it. Notice that if you have forgotten the PIN, you need first to remove it, then set a new one. Changing the PIN will first ask the old PIN which of course if you have forgotten it you cannot enter.

    Pin to Start Email Account from Mail app in Windows 10

    Asks for PIN when adding a different hotmail account to the mail app


    Thank you very much for taking the time for such a detailed reply. I had been going through that exact process. The hang up was when it asked for a PIN (I confirmed it was indeed asking for a pin). I attempted to enter my main MS PIN. This PIN was 7 digits. The box where I entered the number would automatically enter when I put in 4 characters, so as a result, I could never fill in my complete PIN. I went ahead and reset my PIN to a 4 digit one. This seems to have worked, although for some reason, that messed up the certificate in all of my gmail accounts. I am good with computers, but I have never had this much difficulty with a simple email set up... But, thank you very much for your help.

    Bryan

    Windows 10 Mail app deleted all my e-mail accounts


    The Windows Mail App (The e-mail client that comes with Windows 10) is where I had all my e-mail accounts setup so I just had one place to check them. All of the e-mail accounts that I had added to the client are now gone. When I open the app instead of seeing a list of my e-mail accounts I see the app as it was when I first started to use it.

    My e-mail accounts should be listed in the left hand column under Accounts.
