I have one user on a computer that the mail icon will not start in the control panel.  It doesn't have an icon just a blank place holder for its icon.  Any good ideas?

What happens if you type  “mail”  (without the quotes)  in the search box in the right top corner of Control Panel?

Did you ever configure it for the user?
Can you try creating the user's profile:

a) Hold Windows key + R.
 b) Type the following command in the Open box: "Outlook /profiles", and press Enter.
 c) Click on New and follow the on screen instructions to configure the email account.
 d) Click on Options after configuring the email account to set the new profile as default profile.

I did.  This is a office365 configuration and even though I have the correct password it always comes back looking for login and password when it gets to the point of login to server.  I was trying to get into the profiles and remove them all.

Thanks

Try this:
Check that the version of Outlook that you're using meets Office 365 requirements
 Run Office 365 Desktop Setup
 Log in to the portal of Office 365 with the user's account.
 Run office desktop setup and wait until the set up finishes.
 Configure account to check whether the issue still exists.
 
 Make sure the Always prompt for logon credentials box is unchecked:
 a) Open Outlook. Click File > Account Settings > Account Settings.
 b) Click the E-mail tab, click the Exchange Online mailbox, click Change…
c) Click More Settings… Click the Security tab, make sure the Always prompt for logon credentials box is unchecked.
Step 4. Delete the personal credentials.
 If you are running Windows 7, please also remove the user’s stored credentials in Windows Credential Manager. To do this, follow these steps:
 a) Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Credential Manager.
 b) Locate the set of credentials that is used to connect to Exchange. The credentials should be shown as MS.Outlook:username@domain.com.
 c) Expand the set of Generic Credentials, and then select Remove from Vault.
 d) Then re-open your Outlook and check if the issue still exists.

I think I got it:
When you enter the control panel.

Click on view settings at the top right corner and click on small icons.
Now you should be able to see your 32-bit apps including the "Mail (32-bit) Icon" you are looking for. :)
