Open Mail Control Panel window via Command Line

As email continues to be a fundamental communication tool for businesses and individuals alike, being able to effectively manage your email settings is essential. The mail control panel allows you to configure various aspects of your email account, such as adding or removing email accounts, changing passwords, and setting up automatic replies.

We’ve encountered many goofy situations where you need to launch the Mail control panel window from a command prompt. Maybe some previous IT dude thought it would be a good security measure to hide that from control panel so your users wouldn’t mess with it. Maybe somehow the user deleted it. Maybe an office update/install went very wrong. Maybe your computer is all kinds of jacked up and/or infected and you can’t get to control panel.

Regardless, we’ve got you covered here. This command works on all versions of Windows that you are likely to ever use.

Open Command Prompt and run the following command:

control mlcfg32.cpl

That should do it. If it doesn’t, I would recommend a full wipe of the computer because something is very wrong.
