How to delete an account in Mail.app
by centurion48 / October 3, 2011 4:08 PM PDT

With Mail.app as the active application, go the menu Mail -> Preferences and select the Accounts icon. Select (highlight) the account you wish to delete and mouse-click on the '-' sign at the foot of the list of accounts (next to the '+" sign).
The mail account should be deleted.
