    turn off the Import of email


    During Win8 setup, the only option it gives you for email is...@outlook.com. Once you use it, it asks if there are any other email accts. you would like to import. It worked good. Now I no longer want to import emails from the site. For the life of me I cannot find a way to turn off the Import. Help Please, Thanks in advance, Roy

    Hi Roy,

    I'm not sure I understand your problem completely, but you can delete additional e-mail accounts associated with your Microsoft account here.

    If this is not what you want, please explain your problem clearly with the help of screenshots / photos.

    Open the Mail App. Then, In the Charms bar open settings and accounts. Click the mail account you wish to delete. Scroll right down to the bottom and you will see the option to remove the account.
