Thunderbird - Removing an account

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This document will show you how to remove an account from your Thunderbird client in Windows/Mac.

  1. Launch Thunderbird.

  2. In the Mail Account Setup window, highlight the account you would like to delete and right-click on the account:

  3. Click on Settings

  4. In the Account Settings dialog box which opens, click on the account you want to remove then click on Account Actions at the bottom of the left-hand portion of the screen, and then click on Remove Account:

  5. Click on OK to confirm the deletion of your account.

  6. You will be returned to the Account Settings dialog box. Deletion is complete.

  7. To the top
