I'm new to mac. I bought a macbook from a previous owner. I want to use the mac os x mail that is installed, but it is still set-up for the previous owner with their username, pass, etc. I do not have the password. How do I delete the old account so I can set-up my own?

Open up Mail - Preferences - Accounts tab

highlight the account - click the - button at the bottom

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
