Remove email address from Apple Mail

Note: When you delete an email account from Mail, the messages are removed from the account and are no longer available on your Mac. If you had set the email address with IMAP, you can still read these messages via webmail. So, they are not gone. After the reset, Apple Mail will synchronize and retrieve the emails from the server.

• Select Mail in the program on the Mac Mail> “Preferences”, then click “Accounts”.

• Select the account you want to delete and click the button with the minus sign (-) at the bottom of the screen.

Below is an example of what the screen might look like, with the note that in this example it was decided to delete an Outlook e-mail address.
