How to Remove an Account from Mail App in Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1

information   Information
Using the Mail app, which comes with Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1, is an easy way to let you have all your email—from Outlook.com, Exchange, Gmail (Google), Yahoo!, AOL, and other accounts—in one single app. This way there's no need to go to different websites or apps for your email.

If you don't want to see email from an added account in the Mail app anymore, you can remove the account.

This tutorial will show you how to remove an email account from your modern Mail app in Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1.

Note   Note
Removing an account from your Mail app only removes it from the Mail app and doesn’t delete the original account or messages. You will still be able to get to them through a browser or another mail app.

You will not be able to remove an Outlook.com account that is for the same Microsoft account that you use to sign in to Windows with.



Here's How:

1. While on your Start screen, open the Mail app.

2. While the Mail app is open, open the Charms bar, and click/tap on Settings.

3. In Settings, click/tap on Accounts. (see screenshot below)

4. In Accounts, click/tap on the account (ex: Cableone) that you want to remove. (see screenshot below)

5. Scroll down to the bottom of the account's (ex: Cableone) pane, and click/tap on Remove account. (see screenshot below)

6. Click/tap on either All my synced PCs or This PC for which PC(s) you want to remove this account from the Mail app on. (see screenshot below)

NOTE: This would be if you sync your settings on more than one PC that you sign in to with the same Microsoft account.

That's it,
