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.
