    How do I delete the original Outlook account in Mail & Calendar?

    Okay, when I set up my computer (W10 Pro preinstall / Surface Pro 4) Windows put in my private address which is also my Microsoft user account - "myname@lastname.org" - as an Outlook account. It happens to be hosed in a Google Apps for Organizations account, so it runs best when the settings are for gmail. I added my personal gmail account, this apps account, and my business account to Mail.

    Now I need to delete that fake outlook account, but the option to delete the account doesn't exist. It's just an annoyance in Mail as I can hide it by turning the sync off, but it's causing problems in Calendar because it always inserts itself as the default account and, unless I manually change the account every time, my calendar events get hidden and lost to the void that this account is.

    Is there any way to delete that original account?

    Switch to a local account, it allows you then to remove the MS account from the Mail & Calendar and People apps. See tutorial: Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
