I have an IMAP mail account in the Apple Mail client that I want to delete. I first goto the Accounts preferences pane in Mail. When I click the minus icon to delete the account, I get a message about having to do it in Internet Accounts.

However, when I goto Internet Accounts, the email account isn't listed. I see all of my mail accounts except for this particular one.

How can I delete this mail account?

  • ok, so what kind of mail is it (from whom)? your Yosemite says it is in Internet Accounts ? – Ruskes Mar 6 '15 at 16:15
  • A custom domain with Windows Live email (now through Outlook.com). It's not an actual @outlook.com email, rather using that service with a custom domain. – John Chapman Mar 6 '15 at 16:17
  • It is listed on the Accounts pane of the Mail settings, but not in Internet Accounts. Very weird. Also, I do have other accounts with the same type of service (custom domain from Outlook) that show up fine. – John Chapman Mar 6 '15 at 16:18
  • How did you install it in first place ? – Ruskes Mar 6 '15 at 16:35
  • Does it show the "Enable this Account" checked in Mail accounts? You must had set it up manually. – Ruskes Mar 6 '15 at 16:58
