    Hi Eduardo,

    I presume by "keeps flashing" you mean on the bottom right in notifications? If yes please follow the steps below:

    1. Press ⊞ Win+I (i) on your keyboard to open settings alternatively open settings through Start menu
    2. If not in windows settings home page, press Home on top left of window.
    3. Select Accounts
    4. You will be able to locate the email in two locations:
      • Email & accounts
      • Access work or School
    5. Select account and click Remove (if its a Microsoft account) or Disconnect/manage (if its a Workplace or school account)
    The above steps will remove the account you're receiving notifications for.
