I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Unable to delete an email account

When you close your Microsoft account, you delete your account information, including your ID and password, your registered information, and your contacts. After you delete an account, you can't use that Microsoft account anymore to sign in to Microsoft products and services.
To close your account
Go to the Microsoft account overview webpage, and then sign in with your Microsoft account. Click Close account. Verify that the correct Microsoft account appears, type your password, and then click Next.Click deactivate your Hotmail account.Click Close account.
Be sure you are the admin.

To close only your or Hotmail account

Your or Hotmail account will become inactive if you don't sign in for more than 270 days or within the first 10 days after signing up for your account. After an account becomes inactive, all messages, folders, and contacts are deleted, and incoming messages are sent back to the sender as undeliverable. If you want to close your account right away:

Visit the close account webpage. Follow the instructions, and then click Close account to close your account.

I inadvertently deleted my email account from outlook, and now I am unable to re-add it. I actually have both outlook 2010 and 2016 installed, but up until I deleted my email I was able to use both. Now I can't use either of them under my main email address.
I have a pop3 account with stml, from comcast. I have tried numerous times to re-add it, both in the regular way and manually to no avail. I get the error message that my requested process failed. My account is still in the pst. data section, as well as on my computer.


A:Unable to re-add my email account to outlook

Only one version of Outlook will work on your computer. This always opts for the latest version, so you need to uninstall Outlook 2010 & only use Outlook 2016.

Your .pst files should work, but you may need to point Outlook 2016 where to find those files & this can be done through Files in Outlook & then through Account settings.

Unless you have a specific need to have 2 versions of Office on your computer, you might consider uninstalling office 2010 & only using Office 2016. Only having one version works best & has less problems.

I had an aol and a hotmail email account on Outlook. About two weeks ago the aol account stopped working in Outlook. When I would open the aol account there would be no update and in the bottom right of the Outlook screen, there was an indication that I wasn't connected. This would disappear as soon as I I opened the hotmail account, which was fully functional. My aol account in AOL works fine. The only problem is trying to use it in Outlook. My OS is Windows 7. I already tried deleting the aol account and then adding it as a new account, which goes through without a glitch. However, then the aol account does not appear as an option under the Mail heading in Outlook. If I go to Tools/Options/Mail Setup/Email Accounts in Outlook, the aol account appears there.

IMAP works differently than POP and IMAP on Outlook can be confusing (search Outlook help for IMAP for a decent explanation). Unless you have a specific need to use IMAP on Outlook, I would avoid it. Your best bet may be to simply create another Outlook profile and setup your wife's email w/ POP. You may have to forgo the automatic configuration and configure it manually. Contact your mail provider for the correct POP settings. Instead of importing the PSTs you can just open them separately. Once the second profile is configured and working to your satisfaction, you can delete the first profile.

Hello there,
I recently sent my laptop off to be repaired under its warranty and when I got it back I found out that they had made a new admin account so that they could do some test. I now want to delete this admin account but find myself unable to, when I log onto my admin account and select the unwanted account it does not show me the delete account option, so I tried logging on to the account I want to get rid of and still I am not able to find the delete account option in the control panel.

A:Can Norton Delete An Email Account?

I've never heard of this before. Norton deleting an Email account.. It could be a complete coincidence that yahoo purged old names and yours got caught in it by an error. But that seems unlikely. Maybe try getting in contact with the main yahoo webmaster. Im sorry to hear about the loss though, for any matter, i wouldnt recommend NAV for protection anymore. Im sorry for the lack of links, but im at school right now. I would use Kaspersky anti virus, Panda Titanium, or AVG Free anti virus. Quite honestly, it should be common sense to email users what's a potential threat, and what's not. If you see something you dont know or know you dont need, dont download it, its as simple as that. This isnt directed at you, but sitll i know alot of people that accept unknown files from people they've never heard of before. Anyway, go with one of the 3 i talked about, and try getting in contact with the main yahoo webmaster. See what he says.

Okay, so the user name says it all...

My son changed a standard user account with parental controls to an administrator account by downloading a program off the internet. He went to Offline NT Password & Registry Editor and downloaded under the bootdisk submenu. Our attempts to correct the problem have failed.
We've tried deleting the account through Control Panel and command prompt.

We've tried making the account inactive through command prompt.

Even when we type in "net user *** " all we get is "The syntax of this command is: ..." like the account is inaccessible. You don't get the "user name could not be found" message that you would if you typed in an invalid user name but you don't get the account information that you normally would either.

We've tried system restore but the account is still set as administrator.

Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi folks, this is my first post. Nice site here, I had a look through it and there's some cracking threads with hints and tips!

Here is my problem.

When I turn my PC on, it comes to the screen where you choose which user to log on as. Now I only use one of these, the one called 'Stuarty'. The other one, called 'Delete me!' is never used, and it's the one I want rid of.

They are both admin accounts, but when i go to 'user accounts' in control panel, it will only let me delete the 'Stuarty' account. When I click the 'Delete me!' account, the option to 'delete account' isn't there.

Can anyone help me out please?

I keep having this issue with a local account that keeps recreating after a restart of my laptop running Windows 8.1. I discovered this after an unrelated issue on another family computer.
For some reason, a local user account called "War Games" keeps gets recreated after a reboot. It does not appear to administrative rights. I try to delete it through User Accounts as well as in Safe Mode to delete but no luck.
I have run multiple scans with Malwarebytes and ESET Smart Security 8 but unable to detect anything.
Is there another utility I can use to find out what may be happening?

A:Unable to delete user account in Windows 8.1

If war game is your administrative user account you wish to disable open the Elevated Command Prompt.  The easiest way to open this is to press the Windows key and the X key at the same time.  A menu will open, select Command Prompt (Admin).  This will open the command prompt.
copy and paste net user war games /active:no in the command prompt, then press Enter.

Hi There,

I have an email in my microsft outlook outbox which I now do not want to send because of the size, I have tried deleting it out and it will not let me, the computer slows down dramatically and a pop up about low virtual memory appears, is there a way to get rid of this manually?



A:Unable to delete email

First try this:
Type in outbox.pst
open it and delete the message from there.

If that doesn't work, try this (I am not sure this will work - I avoid using Outlook... ) ^_^
With Outlook closed, find the outbox.pst. Rename it to something like outbox.old. Start Outlook. I think Outlook will create a new outbox when you start it up again - if it does, you can delete the one you renamed. If it doesn't, well, I will investigate this more for you.

A:Delete an email account and notify & Switch my contacts to a diff acct

You can export your contacts from yahoo into a CSV format and import it into many other e-mail providers or even another yahoo account. You can also setup your current account as a forwarder to a new e-mail so you don't miss any e-mails in the other account. But as far as notifying everyone, I would create a contact group that includes all your contacts and just send one mass e-mail (and possibly a followup e-mail a few days later just in case).

Is there a way to make outlook delete mail in the sent folder with a imap account? I delete them and they stay, albeit with a strikethrough showing they are marked for deletion. But the only way to delete them so they are gone is go to my webmail page of the account and delete them there.

A:delete sent outlook mail imap account w/o doing it in webmail?

IMAP protocol's biggest advantage is also its biggest problem: the folders are and remain synchronized. You can move the sent messages to another folder to keep Sent folder empty, but in doing so both the Sent folders (local and server) will become and show empty.

Simple answer to your question: no, it's not possible. Check your provider if it is possible for you to use POP3 protocol, it would allow you deleting locally and keeping files on server and vice versa.

However, now when I open Outlook, it is asking to establish a new email account, as if I am a first time user. i can't access the existing email account, and all of the emails, folders etc. An archive.pst file still exists and by the size appears to contain all emails, folders etc.

Does anyone know how I can locate and reinstate the existing email account to access the existing emails etc.?

If this is not possible, can a new account be established and the existing emails, folders etc. in the archive .pst file imported?

I have a total of 4 different email accounts, 3 I have had for some time now. The fourth one is new, and I can not for the life of me get it to work. When I add it as a new email account, it get to the part where it want's to log on to server and send a test message, I get a pop up asking me to enter my user name and password for the following server, over and over again. I have not had these issues with my other accounts, and I know the password is correct because I use the same password for all of my accounts. I have tried to add this new account numerous times to no avail. I have double checked everything in both my outlook account as well as my online account.

Help please,

Hello. can anyone help.
I am trying to add a POP email account to Outlook 2010. I've established network connection but cannot retrieve the Outlook Test message. An error box comes & says unable to connect to the server. 550.5.7.1 message content. I have had this POP account on previous versions of Outlook 2010, & it was ok I am puzzled.
Many Thanks

A:Cannot add new email account in Outlook 2010

Without knowing more about your mail server name and such.
Have you tried to Ping your mail server? like from the run cmd prompt ping
I ping to verify that the server is on-line and responding.

You could double check all the options in outlook setup email accounts to make sure that
you have spelled everything correctly, that sometimes is the problem where mispelling will
mess you up.

also the more settings options will have to be looked at to make sure that the boxes are checked correctly.

These things can get tricky if you misspell, many mail servers want your complete email address for the logon userid..

Hi I was having a problem where outlook was not syncing my sent mail past last week.

so I deleted my email address account and wanted to start again and change settings from pop3 to imap

When I deleted the account I found I could not fully remove it from the side pane as it was set as the default email address.

I then decided to re add the same email address in the hopes that I could use the new one as default and delete the old one

Now I am still stuck with the same email address that I could not remove from before and I am having a new problem where the sent mail will not sync from today

I have uninstalled office and re installed it but the address is still saved somehow?

any help would be greatly appreciated

Try this. Open Control Panel, select the Mail (Microsoft Outlook 2010), when that opens select Email Accounts, that will then open your email accounts & you will see that you can remove accounts, reset the default account & set up a new email account, as you can than follow through from here to set up all the details for a new account.

All Outlook account details are stored in your Documents Library under Outlook Files & are stored in .pst format & can only be accessed from within Outlook & any changes can be done as I mentioned above.

I'm using Outlook 2003 and Windows xp professional. Ever since I was required to install Outlook Connector to connect Outlook with my hotmail account, I've had connecting issues. Most of the time I get them worked out, but this time I can't. I've tried reinstalling Outlook Connector and removing and then adding again my email account to Outlook. When I try to connect, there is a red X in the lower right window of Outlook and it says
Mail: error
Calendar: error
Contact: connected

The thing is, when I created a new hotmail account (and a gmail account for that matter) I was able to easily connect both of them to Outlook without problem- it is only this original email account that will not connect. Please help if you can!

I've seen some posts with similar issues here; however none of them seem to address my problem exactly.

Here is what happens.

When I change my default EM account under 'Tools, E-mail accounts' it accepts the changes. However, in reality it keeps the old default and always reverts back. The only way to set a new default EM account is to delete the old one.

However, as soon as I add the deleted account once again; immediately Outlook reverts back once again.
Anything to be done? Or do I have to delete the profile and start from scratch?

Thanks for your help !

I need to add an email account to Outlook 2002 for a user. When I try to do so I'm told I cannot do so from within Outlook and I must create the new account by accessing the "Mail" icon in control panel. The problem is there is no mail icon in the control panel. I'm not certain if this is a result of a security policy or if there's something else I'm missing. The OS is Win2K SP3, fully patched and up to date. I tried uninstalling Outlook and then reinstalling under the users profile but the issue persists. I would imagine there must be some way I can delete the current Outlook profile via the registry. If anyone can shed some light on how I might resolve this issue I'd be greatful. Thx.

Depending on what verison(s) of Outlook you're using, and what e-mail server you're trying to connect to, you may only need to have the correct userid and password and it might be easier just to create the account fresh.

This sounds interesting.

Are the e-mail accounts subaccounts of one ISP or each a different domain as in:
1) a Gmail account
2) your own ISP account
3) and maybe another free account like ?

You mention each account has its own unique name under Account Settings. Does this mean the accounts do not have their own unique name listed under the E-mail Account Header column?

Assuming they are pop3 accounts, I'm 99% sure you'll only have the option to use one sent items folder. You can create a sub-folder within "Sent Items" for "Account B" and save a copy there.
If you can use IMAP instead, I'm pretty sure you can specify a separate folder without it also being duplicated.

My problem is, the delete function GONE!

The mistakenly made user is Administrator.
When I logged in Administrator, a pop-up appeared saying that it is a temporary user account.

I really want to delete it, It's a nuisance every time I log-in and takes some space.

When using IMAP emails are not necessarily deleted, they are only marked for deletion until the server purges them.

A:Problems setting up Outlook 2010 to use the appropriate email account

Hello Mario,

Welcome to SevenForums.

Lets start with a few questions to eliminate the obvious. I assume you setup the signatures seperately for each account using this panel?

I found some additional information about signatures here: (browse down towards the bootom of the page)

One suggestion I read, was that the signature it picks to use is related to the folder that you currently have highlighted. I'm not entirely sure how that works, perhaps you could experiment with that?

Let us know how you get on.

I was curious if anybody knew this. I could not find it anywhere and had never heard of it. Is there a way to temporarily disable an email account? Like a pause button. So if I 'pause' a specific account (I have approx. 6 email accounts in my Outlook, mostly POP3 & Exchange), when I hit Send/Receive it will not be included, but if I 'unpause' it shall be included. Is there a feature like this?

If this is possible I'd like to implement this in a family members of mine computer. So it must be 'stupid proof' if it is.

Hello Kari,

If your password has more than 16 characters, then that may be the issue. Test it with no more than 16 to see if you are able to add it afterwards.

So I'm making the switch from one email client to

One problem: I had all of the mail from my previous email account forwarded to the one to which I'm switching, meaning I have over 50,000 emails (literally) that I need to delete.

When I try to delete them in bulk (right click: empty folder), it suddenly disconnects.

On, it just gives me an error message when I try to do the same thing.

The errors include: "Sorry, there seems to be a problem with right now"

And: "There was a problem with the service (a temporary network connectivity issue that has nothing to do with your computer). Please try again."

Is there an easier way to just remove every email in my inbox without all of these issues?

Thanks in advance,

In Outlook 2016 I want to delete emails in batches by searching for a keyword and then deleting all mail that is displayed by the search. How do I do that?

A:Delete email in batches in Outlook 2016.

Once you have searched for a particular term, click on one of the emails that comes up and press CTRL+A to select all the messages, then hit the delete button. That should hopefully work for you

Hi Guys is it possible to set up my Outlook 2010 to delete my email from the server once I have downloaded and read them ?

Many thanks


A:Delete Email from Server using Outlook 2010

Yes, you can delete email from the server using Outlook 2010.

Exactly how can depend on: What type of email account(s) you have such as IMAP, POP3, ...
Who the email provider(s) are such as Gmail, Hotmail, ...
How you want your email saved...
I'm assuming this is for Home email and you installed, configure, and control Outlook.

If this is for any Work email account(s) where Outlook is controlled by "Corp. policy / Email administrator" that can make a difference.

I am not able to delete any emails in my outlook express. It seems to me I read someplace that when this problem comes up that you go in and rename the existing delete file to something else and OE will create a new delete file when it opens, however, I do not remember the exact details. If there is anyone out there who has experienced this and knows the path to the delete file, I would appreciate the assistance. Thanks in advance.

I am unable to delete messages in my In Box (M/S Outlook). A message appears as:

Errors have been detected in the file C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local|Microsoft\Outlook.pst. Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose errors in the file. For more information about the Inbox repair tool, see Help.

But I am unable to work out who to do this. Any ideas?

A:How to change email account settings in outlook from IMAP to POP3?

Use Office Outlook on your desktop as your email app instead of windows 10 (formerly Hotmail) and select Office's Outlook as your default. The win 10 Mail app is for webmail and home user use. You might need it for your Microsoft webmail Account but use Office Outlook as your mail email program for POP mail. Office Outlook and are unrelated in spite of the recycled name.

When multiple accounts are added on Outlook 2010 and you create a new email, autocomplete in the 'to' field shows suggestions from every account. Is it possible to only show suggestions relevant to the account the email is being sent from.

For example, if I had my personal account and a customer services account, when I go to send an email from my personal account, every email address who has ever communicated with the customer services account shows which is quite risky.

Thanks, Louise

Have you looked in the help section of outlook. The only thing i can suggest at the moment, is click the contacts in outlook,and then the little arrow next my contacts, there you will find yor email accounts with suggested contacts and contacts, see what happens when you try that.

I'm hoping that someone can help me with changing the default internet email account in MS Outlook 2000 Corporate/Workgroup. In the regular Outlook 2000, there is a button in the service box for set as default. However, this does not exist in my program. I am running two internet email accounts, and I would like the second one that I installed to be the default for sending messages. I know there must be a way to do this, but I just can't remember/ figure it out. Thanks!

I have recently changed my ISP to BT from Eclipse. Previously Outlook 2010 was configured to allow emails to be downloaded from the Eclipse servers and to enable me to send emails using Outlook 2010 using my Eclipse email address. I also have Outlook configured using IMAP to enable me to download emails from Gmail. I can no longer send emails using my eclipse email account.

Can someone help me to reconfigure Outlook so that I can send and receive emails using the Gmail servers from Outlook 2010 as my primary email source.

I wish to carry on using Outlook 2010 as I have many saved email folders in the account.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.



A:How do I change my email account to Gmail from Eclipse in Outlook 2010

In "accounts" you simply need to change the default account for sending to the gmail account. Sorry if that's a bit vague but I haven't used outlook for ages (and don't have it).

Funny thing, but when you choose a default account outlook is supposed to use that one as the default send account. So you compose a new mail and it should use that account as the from address. But it doesn't always work. Yes, i know u can CHOOSE any account by clicking on the "from" button and picking one from the drop down menu. But i don't want to have to keep doing that. I finally got it to work with a reg hack i found when googling the issue. Now when i compose new mail it uses account #1.

However, if someone sends me a email to my account #2, when i reply it uses account #2 to send from. Is there any way i can make outlook use account #1 for all email i send whether they are new emails or replies no matter what account hey were sent to?
