Note: If your server is Exchange 2013 the server name will get underlined and will resolve into a name that looks like 20250514-db52-4776-b627-0edf7599bbe4@YourDomainName.com. Such a conversion is expected behaviour for Exchange 2013 mailboxes.
- Go to Start > Control Panel > Mail.
If you cannot locate the Mail icon within your Windows Control Panel, try the following steps:
- To the left of the Windows Control Panel, but in the same window, select Classic View.
- If Mail still does not appear as an individual icon, look for it under Show 32-bit Control Panel Items.
