    Double accounts in Mail app, can't remove


    I had to do a system restore, and when I opened the Microsoft Mail account, my accounts from before were showing up even though they were no longer connected via the Email & accounts tab in Windows Accounts Settings. I have readded the accounts, but there is no way to remove the residual accounts, so now they are each showing up twice. When I click on the ones I need to delete, nothing happens, because they are leftovers and not actually connected. I have tried both resetting the app and uninstalling then reinstalling it. I have tried logging out of all sessions on Yahoo and iCloud, but they persist. It's driving me crazy. How can I get rid of them?

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Double accounts in Mail app, can't remove :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    Removing email account added to Mail app settings

    Hi Robert,

    Removing or deleting an email account from the Mail app is possible via the Settings in the Mail app. You can do this by following these steps:

    • Click the Gear icon in the lower left corner of the Mail app.
    • Choose Manage Accounts, then choose the account you want to remove.
    • Choose Delete Account.

    NOTE: The Delete account option removes the account from the Mail and Calendar apps, but does not affect the account itself. For example, if you remove an Outlook.com account from the Mail and Calendar apps, you can still access that account
    using another email client or on the web.

    Let us know if you have other concerns about the Mail app.

    Double accounts in Mail app, can't remove

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del
