For people using multiple email accounts, it is advisable to merge or connect accounts in one for easy access. Connecting all accounts will enable the user to check all their emails by using one account. However, there will come a time that you might want to remove an account which you think should not be connected with your other accounts. Deleting an email account is easy as you are just deleting the connection and not the account itself.
Before disconnecting your email account, it is recommend signing in to your original email provider and making sure copies of your emails are there. If they are there after you remove your account you can delete all of your emails from Hotmail and you’ll still have a copy of them at your email provider. If they aren’t there, after you remove the account, you might want to store your email in a folder in Hotmail instead of deleting them.
Provided below are the steps to delete an account:
On the email, navigation bar select SETTINGS to choose OPTIONS.
In the left pane, click MAIL to open the options and choose ACCOUNTS to go to CONNECTED ACCOUNTS.
Select the account you want to delete or remove then click REMOVE.
Click YES to confirm
After removing the account, you may want to delete the messages from that account. Please note that the emails will not be deleted once you remove the account. It is an option for you to keep or delete the messages from the deleted account.
