Not able to find IMAP account on Windows 8

Original Title: Add imap acounts, 6 of them, to Windows 8

 

I'm setting up a new pc with Windows 8, I have one imap account functions properly.  I've scene the small window account once while setting up the primary account.  It  is currently no place to be found, at least by me!

 

How about the control panel; where they hide that little un-important little devil?

Hi Lyle,

I would like to gather some information in context of this issue:
1) What exactly are you referring to when you say “I've scene the small window account once while setting up the primary account”? Did you add the IMAP account to Mail app while setting up Windows 8 initially?
2) Are you using Microsoft account to login to the computer?
 
If you have already added the account to Mail app and you are looking for the IMAP account, you can follow the steps and check:
a) Type "mail" on the Start screen and Click on Mail to open Mail app.
b) Press Windows and C key together and click on Settings.
c) Click on Accounts.
d) Check if you are able to find the required account.

You can refer to the link to sign up with a Microsoft account while setting up Windows 8:
