"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Run a repair of the installation?

What happens when you run outlook?

When you update the OS against the internet not internal WSUS does it show any missing updates?
Sounds like something is not up to date here.

Is this an OEM build of Windows? uninstall all of the unneeded hp , dell lenovo etc software.

I am installing missing updates now and will reboot.

Outlook does run and I can add the profile in a different way but why does that icon not show ?

I don't know about the image I don't install windows etc on their computers just troubleshooting this issue.

I believe they have their own images and install them on the new PCs.

Do you thinka  format would fix the issue?

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

try start -> run -> outlook

if this fails try start -> run -> outlook /safe

If that fails install all missing updates, then run a repair of the installation from add remove programs.

I cannot find Outlook profiles under here

For Outlook 2016: “HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Office/16.0/Outlook/Profiles/profile-name”.  

In regedit

Mail icon does not appear under Control Panel

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run   dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Restart and test. It is best now to make Outlook 2016 email profiles with the Mail Icon in Control Panel.

Please try Option 2 - Completely uninstall Office 2016 with the Easy fix tool from below link to uninstall Office completely:

If you are running Outlook 2016 64 bit, you will not see the mail account in control panel and there is nothing wrong with it.

There is no need to repair at all

JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
If the above is true, see if there is a 32-bit section in Control Panel, and if so, the Mail Icon may be in there.

Jackie ManIT ManagerCommented:
Agreed.

Alternatively, you can try the following.

Start > Run > C:\Windows\SysWOW64\control.exe mlcfg32.cpl
