Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

I can't get into Facebook as I've. Lost my phone with my code and lost my old email address I know my login username and password


Anyone you previously emailed should have your old email address unless they deleted correspondence from you. Make a new email account, email them requesting the old address. You were one of their contacts, possibly.

I would like to change my email address


Open a new email account with the address you want. Go to the old and check weather you can delete the account. I think Gmail allows. Back up all your incoming & sent mails to your computer before deleting the account.

You will need your passwords to change any settings. I doubt they can help either as the account is setup on your old email address. Why not re start your old email address and email the company for a new password.

How do I delete my email address from an old computer


Use CCleaner first. If you no longer want your account on the old PC, go to Control Panel, System, Advanced, on the User Profiles, click settings and delete your account there. All files under that account will be deleted.

Hello,

I believe you need to delete the Deleted Items.dbx file because it is most likely corrupted that's why you're having problems when deleting something on your OE.

To delete the DBX, do the following.

You need to have Hidden files and Folders showing.
At the top of any folder(My Documents for example) click Tools>Folder Options>View tab.
Scroll down the list and place a check next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then click Apply and OK.

In OE click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder.
On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard.
Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard.
Click Cancel on all boxes and close OE.

Click on Start>Run.
Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK.
The Store Folder containing all the DBX files should open.
In the Store folder, delete the Deleted Items.dbx and close the Store folder.
Open OE and see if you can now delete messages

Hope this works for you!

How do i combine all my yahoo accounts to just one. over time i have created numerous yahoo accounts.and i just want to combine all my yahoo accounts to just one


You can import all the contacts from the various accounts into the one you choose to save. (See here.) Then you'll have all your contacts in one place. Then send an email to all the contacts from the various accounts, telling them your master email address. Don't close the old accounts immediately, but set them up to forward incoming emails to your new account for a month or so until everyone gets the new address and is up to speed. You might get some stragglers that weren't on your contact list but you wish to remain in contact with. You can also forward any emails or files you wish to preserve from the old accounts to the master account. Then delete them from the old account. Clean up the old accounts by deleting unwanted emails and files, en masse if neccessary. (Learn how to select and delete multiple emails at once using the shift and ctrl keys if you don't already know how to do so.)
Finally, when you're sure you no longer need the old email accounts, simply close the account as described in this article. and refer also to this article. As long as you maintain the master account, you'll still have access to email, but once you close an account, it can no longer forward email to you. It is permanently closed. So take it gradually if you're uncertain, just to be cautious.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I want to delete the boxbe waiting list and everything to do with boxbe from my computer


Since you didn't much details about your email, I am unable to give you the specific answer. Actually, boxbe services for a specific email can be disabled from the Boxbe Dashboard (only when you are logged in to Boxbe). On the Dashboard menus, you'll see the a "disable" link beside your email address/es. Simply click the "Disable" link to disable boxbe for that specific email address. But if you with to pemanently delete your boxbe account, login to your boxbe account, click "Account Info" (of click HERE once you are logged in), there you'll find an option to close your account. Once this is done, you'll never receive or have any features of boxbe. If you wish to delete all the mails fro boxbe, search for boxbe in the "search mail" box (this might be different for different email services), select all and then Delete them.

Note: There are several reports about boxbe being unable to deactivate/close.


Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck..

Thanks for using FixYa.
