You cannot add a Microsoft Exchange account to this profile while Outlook is running. Exit Outlook and use the Mail icon in the Control Panel to add a Microsoft Exchange Account.

Hi,

You can search for the mlcfg32.cpl file and can run it directly to create profile as it is in control panel.

search for the file in this directory also
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12 or
C:\PROGRAm Files\COMMON Files\System\MSMAPI\1033\mlcfg32.cpl
if it is there please follow these below steps

Make sure that the following Control Panel file exists and that it works as expected:
C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\System\MSMAPI\1033\mlcfg32.cpl
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\MMCPL
Make sure that the mlcfg32.cpl registry entry exists. Additionally, make sure that its value is set as follows:
Drive:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\System\MSMAPI\1033\mlcfg32.cpl
If the mlcfg32.cpl registry entry does not exist, you must create it. To do this, follow these steps:
Right-click the MMCPL registry subkey, point to New, and then click String Value.
Type mlcfg32.cpl as the name of the registry entry.
Double-click the mlcfg32.cpl registry entry, type Drive:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\System\MSMAPI\1033\mlcfg32.cpl in the Value Data box, and then click OK.
Exit Registry Editor, and then open Control Panel. The Mail icon is displayed as expected.
