    Unable to Change settings or Delete Account in Windows Mail


    So, I noticed a calendar event was missing from my calendar. I thought I would try turning off the Calendar sync and turn it back to see if that would fix it.


    First problem: "Change mailbox sync settings" are grey'd and can't do anything there, see below screenshot.

    So I thought I would try deleting the account, but then I got this error:

    Something went wrong. We're sorry, but we weren't able to do that. Error code: 0x800706d9. See below screenshot

    Hi

    This is what you need to do:

    • Right click on the windows start menu and select the control panel
    • Select the user accounts and the then make changes to my account in PC settings
    • Change the Microsoft user account to Local user account
    • Then go to the mail app and you will see the delete option.
    • Last, change your Local user account to Microsoft user account if you want to.

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10


    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.


    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
