can't remove old emails from android tablet
« on: September 20, 2017, 06:04:36 PM »
Problems with trying to delete old emails from my tablet which I run
from my w-10 computer.I guess this is supposed to work.
Open settings,find accounts,tap google then choose accounts to remove.
In top right tap more.
I can't find more where the remove account is.
Also I got a question will the things I do in the tablet effect my w-10
computer and goof it up?
It is an android tablet

I'm not certain I understand the steps you are following.  Are you working from the Windows 10 computer or the Android tablet? 

What version of Windows 10 are you on (Go to Settings > System > About)?  What version is your Android tablet?

If you are you using the Windows 10 computer, what are you using to access mail -- the mail app, Office, or something else?

Thank you.  In that case, we need to wait for someone who uses Android to see if they can help.

Corrine I think its a sync problem. First i think they have to un-sync email accounts from tablet first then the accounts can be deleted.

While its synced to the windows 10 computer they wont delete

Good suggestion, Paddy.  @johnson55, try un-syncing the old email accounts from the tablet as Paddy suggested.

Problems with trying to delete old emails...

I got 2 old email programs I want to remove

Are you trying to delete an email "account" - that is, an email "address" you no longer use?

Or are you trying delete old email "messages" that were sent to you that you no longer need?

Or are you trying to uninstall old email "programs" you used to use to read and send your email with?
