    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.

    Mail and People apps show list of old accounts, how to remove them?


    HI,

    So one time I decided to use windows 10 manager mail and people backup tool and then when mail app started to act unresponsive I imported them back and since then I can't remove add/delete any old email accounts.. Where is this thing stored or how can I remove them?

    Remove an account - Windows Help

    and this
    People app help - Windows Help

    Windows 10 Help Forums
    doesn't help since I cant access the accounts inside the app.. Enabling onedrive or this command didn't do anything either.

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    All I see is this e.g. People app

    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
