Windows 10: Remove a account Mail

    Remove a account Mail


    I have been looking in tutorials and other posts and do not have a solution to this problem.

    In Mail I have two accounts. One is my personal MSN account and the other is a Exchange account with my former employer. Obviously the former employer has deactivated my account.

    I want to remove the Exchange account. It currently is giving "attention required" I looked at the post to remove an account. When I go to settings under this mail account I only have two (links)options:
    1 Fix account
    2 Change settings
    Neither of these are active. I do not have a option to delete the account.

    Any ideas???

    You need to login to your own admin account first.

    Have you used this tutorial ? https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/6...a.html#option2

    Use Option Two.

    P.S. I don't know if the method works on an Exchange account.

    Tried option Two. I do not get a option to delete. Dead end here.

    I am going to uninstall Mail then reinstall it if no one else has a comment.

    Thanks for the advice.
