Something odd has just happened with my mail.
I previously had both the hotmail account and an MS Exchange work email account loaded onto the Win8 CP mail.
Now the exchange account has disappeared, and there is no longer a button anywhere to allow me to add the account back in.

Anyone have any suggestions?

are u using the metro app? if that's the case;

in your Metro Mail App, open up the charms bar (win key+C) and go to settings or accounts, from there you can add new or delete...
Im not on my Win8 right now to post screenies, but I think u get the point.

Metro Mail lost email accounts, right click does not work to re-add!

Same thing happened here a day after an update (March 26th). This navigation is FRUSTRATING.. its supposed to make things easier, not learn a new language. Get real.

The option to add email accounts are still there.
1. Go to app called "Mail" first.
2. Go to the right most corner of your screen there you will find "Settings".
3. Click "Settings"
4. Click on "Accounts"
5. Click on "Add an account"

Here you have the option to add a Hotmail (or Live), Google, or Microsoft Exchange account.

Here you have the option to add a Hotmail (or Live), Google, or Microsoft Exchange account.
Actually you have to right click there and no need to move cursor.

Then via bottom options, click Accounts, then click Add new account in left navigation pane and add another account. Hope this helps.. :)
