If I uninstall/reinstall Office 2013, will I lose my email accounts?

I mean the email account settings (username, password, etc)? Or will I have to add all email accounts again after re installation of Office 2013? Thanks

You would have to Re-add them again. Its a safety Feature.

Thanks, I suspected so. No way to backup/restore or export/import them?

Im doubt there is a way to do it.

But it would be easier to just type them in again.

UPDATE: This is very strange, I uninstalled Office 2013, then reinstalled Office 2013 back, was ready to manually add all of my email accounts again, but no need, all email accounts were preserved, no need to even input my passwords. Really strange, but welcome!
