    WLM: Can't delete an account

    I hope by not changing threads this will work. I have an old email account that I'm trying to delete. When I right-click on the account the delete option is not highlighted. What can I do to delete this account?

    Nope, that didn't do it. The "delete" button is NOT highlighted, therefore doesn't work.

    It's not a delete button. It's a Remove account menu item.

    Three steps:
    1. Right-click your Account
    2. Select "Remove account"
    3. Click "Yes" to confirm
