    No delete option in settings for mail accounts

    I followed the tutorial and in account settings there is no option to delete the mail account. There is sync settings then account settings but below that no delete options. Please explain how to add the delete option or provide support with regard to deleting the account

    What email program are we talking about ?

    If you are asking how to delete an account from the built-in Mail app, here is how................

    Open mail > left side, at the bottom, click the Gear icon ( that is the Settings icon ) > right side, click Manage Accounts > click the account you want to delete > see screenshot below..........

    As davidhk pointed out, there is an option to delete your account. However, you must select or click on the account first, before the Delete Account is available.
