    Thanks Brink! App Reset worked, at least good enough. I now get "Attention required" and "fix" allows me to change the login email address on the account and now can get this working again.
    That's great news.

    Thanks Kari. This was never a local account and I am sure windows would never do that without asking. I am logged into a O365 AzureAD domain account. I am signed in as xxx@sss.com (domain & local admin rights) and the account I am trying to delete is yyy@sss.com. The account to delete has been removed from AzureAD. My assumption is there is some dependency on the old user's account on the local machine I can not find. Any thoughts?
    OK, tested this and cannot reproduce your issue.

    Booted up a Windows 10 version 1607 PC which only has one user account, an O365 / Azure AD account. Mail app was not set up, no accounts in it.

    Added a Microsoft email account to Mail app, account remained a normal Azure AD account, did not switch to Microsoft account or change the sign in options in any way. Removing the Microsoft email account from mail app required only a few mouse clicks.

    I don't know what happened to you, your Windows, but I've now tested this three times and Windows works as expected.

    Main thing is you got it resolved
