All my e-mail accounts disappeared from windows 10 mail. When I try to add them again, I get message "e-mail account exist". Yet, my e-mail is empty. I had 4 e-mail accounts defined, I can't see any of them!

Thank you for you response, to answer your questions:
1) I did not make any changes to the computer
2) I had outlook, Gmail, Yahoo and iCloud mails defined in my mail accounts. However, I tried adding an exchange server account and I could as my company exchange mail server policies had too many restrictions.
I know this is old but I just had this problem. I had several accounts in my mail app for windows 10 and all just disappeared for some reason. I did some checking and into the Settings/ Manage Accounts/ Add Account. Then I check on the Account type I wanted
to add and all my other accounts were there so I had to add each one and it set it up automatically. Pain in the butt, but it worked.
I can really, for the love of all of Bills billions, not comprehend how Microsoft isn't able to develop a stable mailcliënt.
So often accounts disappear, or even once a total random account was set as 'main' account for win10. Such a mess. Sure, you will delete this but I am so disappointed and annoyed. While I should be working am I looking to recover three mailacccounts that
just disappear from windows 10 mail with no reason. Not the first time, fourth time since I used this mailcliënt.
Do you understand that people don't need this when they need their computer and email for work?
At least windows live mail was - semi- ok and had the opportunity to spam spamming domains manually.
Speaking of, you really have no idea what is priority to people and what not do you?
Don't let software choose when you are not able to develop a competent type of software that has to do the choosing: give people the tools.
I wish you -and thus the whole world who has to put up with this- the best for 2018.
