    Mail Question - Adding and Removing Email Addresses


    Hello,

    If I were to add a email address to the Mail app on Windows 10 Creators Update, would I be able to remove it from the Mail app and not permanently delete the email address? I don't want to accidentally delete my Google email address from existence. Does just removing the email from the Mail app, just remove it from the Mail app or deletes the email for good?

    Removing the account from the Mail app will not affect the account on Google or MS Outlook servers.
    Its like deleting a bookmark on a browser.
    Now if you delete or move an individual e-mail, when it syncs with the host it will update the server.
