When I try to...

When I try to open my email I am getting a message "This App can't open. There is a problem with mail. Contact your system administrator about repairing or reinstalling it."

Technician's Assistant: How's your internet connection? Are you checking your email from a browser or a mail client (e.g. Outlook)?

The internet connection seems to be fine.....I think I am checking it from Outlook.

Technician's Assistant: Are there any antivirus or firewall settings that could block you from receiving mail?

I have been getting pop-up messages from Malwarebytes (is that it?) about upgrading, but my email was working fine then just stopped.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

No, just how to get access to my email back

Why would I pay for something you did not deliver? There is nothing right about that. I am pleased to pay for a product or service that is delivered which is not the case here.

> This App can't open. There is a problem with mail. Contact your system administrator about repairing or reinstalling it.

Can you please provide a screenshot showing the above message and more? Thanks.

This seems to be en expensive learning experience for me. I was charged for zero help. I intend to look elsewhere
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

It is a paid service and it is a more helpful service, but you need to let us clear know what is happening at your side. This is the key for a best solution. Can you now provide a screenshot? Thanks.
