    Deleting a "work or school" email account


    I acquired a "work or school" email account to correspond remotely with a business that I was working with. This account was within that business's network. That relationship is no longer active and I want to delete that secondary email account from my PC. I can't figure out how to do it. I want to be sure I am not deleting my primary email account. Can you help please?

    :)

    Fix "Work or School account problem" after deleting an e-mail account.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate the efforts taken by you in resolving the issue. I understand that you are receiving an error related to your email account. I’ll certainly assist you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • When you say “I deleted the e-mail account” do you mean deleting the Microsoft account or deleting the account from your computer?
    • Are you using a Microsoft account to login to the computer?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned below and see if that helps:



    1. Press Windows logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Accounts, and select
      Access work or school
      from the left pane.
    3. Now, click on the email account and select
      Disconnect
      .
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions.


    If this doesn’t work, you may want to try converting the account to a local account and see if that helps. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Accounts and select
      Your info
      from the left pane.
    3. Click on Sign in with a local account instead.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.


    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

  3. Unable to delete a school email account

    My wife graduated from school from where she got rights to use Office programs on our home computer. Some of these programs created an account that is named after her school email.

    After graduation Office didn't work anymore so I removed it from the apps. But the email account stayed and causes a pop up window after starting the laptop saying "some account have problems etc".

    Now if I try to delete the account first control panel guides me to manage that account -> which then redirects it to the schools sign in page. As she isn't a student she doesn't have rights to the schools system anymore.

    So how how do you delete the account?

    email account hacked. please help

    Don't think you can if they were deleted from your email account and are not in your trash folder. Try contacting Yahoo, explain what happened, and see what they can do or suggest you do.
