    Unable to log into Outlook/Hotmail email a/c

    Have new laptop OS win8.1

    Am able to start using password ??? but cannot access mail. Each time I try with the mail app I get a full screen just showing the mail envelope.

    When trying to add a/c I am informed that already exists obviously!

    My desktop with Win7-64 hasn't any problems.

    Assistance appreciated.

    Further: I am able to open/log in to my email a/c - [Removed by Admin] - so my wife's laptop must me set up for email.

    I have checked her laptop and she definitely has an Outlook a/c. Why is she unable to access this?
