    Can't Delete Connected Account in Outlook.com

    Ever so often I check Outlook.com to see if it has improved.

    Well I found it hasn't.
    I created an account and it automatically set it as imap and I wanted it pop3.

    Now I can't delete the account to try again.
    Tells me there was a problem and if the continues contract support.

    I'm using Edge and I cleaned browser history and rebooted.
    Btw, this happens on my pc and my tablet and internet explorer.

    Hi James.

    If you want to delete your Outlook.com account I believe they call it closing. Not sure this is what you want to do as it sounds like you may have added another account to you outlook.com account that you want to be POP3.


    I am unaware of how to set up an Outlook.com as POP but under options => accounts => pop3 you can access your Outlook.com account through as a "Pop" client. They give you settings for your client when you allow POP access.
