    OS Mtn Lion - Mail App - Delete Account?
    Hello All - new users to OS Mtn Lion - I'm on a r-MBP for 6 wks; wife on an iMac for less than a month (also Mtn Lion).

    I'm using the Mail App w/o a problem, but signed her into the Mail App on the iMac which she disliked and wanted to return to using her Yahoo account web-based on Safari - I tried to delete her account on Mail but it keeps coming back - am I missing something simple or is this just a feature of this app that is elusive? Thanks - Dave

    Should just be a case of opening Mail, Preferences, Accounts. select the mail account and hit the - (minus) at the bottom of the window to delete the account
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Thanks mrplow - thought that I could just 'shut off' the features, but I just deleted the account which should work as you state - Dave
