    Delete closed account

    I sold a small business and dropped the service provider who was providing me with email addresses. Now, every time I open Outlook, I see a screenlet asking me to log into the email account which no longer exists.

    It appears that I have to log into the account in order to delete it from Outlook. Is there a way around this, or is it easier to just delete the Outlook program and reinstall it? Will that get rid of the account, or is this buried in the registry somewhere?

    Use the Mail applet in Control Panel to delete the account.

    Should be something in Outlook's Accounts where one can delete an account and create a new one.
