Deleting info on an email

I have not been able to find out how to delete addresses and other information within the email before I send/forward it to someone else. I used to do it on my computer at work, but this one at home won't let me do it the same way. At work I would click on forward. Then I would highlight the info I wanted to delete and press the delete button. I can't do that here. I have gone into just about everything I can and even right clicked on buttons, but I can't find a solution. Please help.

    How to keep a check on Email Spam?

    Step 1: Set up "filters" in your Gmail account to automatically delete junk mail from specific senders. While spammers tend to change their email addresses frequently, you will sometimes get repeated spam messages from the same sender. Go into your "Settings," click "Filters," and set up a filter that automatically deletes all incoming emails from the sender.

    Step 2: If you are getting junk mail from the same company, but the return address keeps changing, create a filter to delete the emails by detecting certain words. For example, maybe the company is called Global Moneymaking Enterprises. Create a filter that catches all emails that contain those three words and set it to delete them automatically.

    Step 3: Rather than deleting junk emails that make it into your Gmail inbox, select them and click the "Report Spam" button. This will move the message into your spam folder, but it will also give Google information to help it improve its spam filter.

    Step 4: Set up a special Gmail address that you use for making purchases, signing up for newsletters, and doing other activities that require you to give out your email address. Sometimes companies will opt you into promotional offers or sell your email address to spammers. Block this mail from coming to your main Gmail account by protecting that address and only giving out your special account address.

    Step 5: If you notice a lot of junk emails in your spam folder that contain certain words, set up a filter to screen out emails with those words. Terms such as Viagra are common, but spammers often change them around to defeat spam filters, However, many of these changes are used frequently. For example, many spammers use the same Vi@gara misspelling. When you notice this, block those terms and you won't even get their messages in your Gmail spam folder.

    How to delete an email address

    Which email account? and adress yours or someone on you email list.
    Email addresses: we have one for work, we have one for friends.
    We have one for shopping, and sometimes we have one for the dubious Internet deals into which we get sucked.
    Sometimes we get spammed so heavily we have to abandon one and get another.
    Sometimes our main address isn't professional enough, so we create a new one.
    Sometimes we just want to sign up with another service.
    Next thing you know, you have more addresses than you can keep track of. It's time to start deleting the ones we don't need.

    Access your Internet email provider in which you have the email account you wish to delete.
    Type your username, password and then click on the "Sign In" button.
    Locate your options button.
    With Yahoo and Gmail accounts, it is usually located on the upper right hand side of the page. Click on the dropdown menu and find the "Mail Options" button and click on it.

    Click on "Accounts," which should appear on your left top side; this depends on your email provider.
    Make sure you do not confuse the "Account" button with the account information option.

    Click on "Delete Account" and this should take care of getting rid of your email account.
    Remove a Hotmail Email Address
    A popular free email service offered by Microsoft is Hotmail. Setting up a Hotmail account is simple; so is closing one.
    If your account has been hacked or your email box is inundated with spam, closing the account is an easy remedy.
    Before closing your email address, alert friends, family members and associates of your plans. You may want to forward them a replacement email address, if you have one, to stay connected.

    Go to the MSN homepage.
    Click on the tab in the upper left corner labeled "Hotmail."
    Log into your account by typing in your username, password and hitting the "Enter" key.

    Click on the "Help" key located at the upper right of the page.
    It will appear as a blue question mark.

    Select "Table of Contents" from the sidebar on the left.
    Click on "Setup a Windows Live Hotmail Account."
    Scroll down to "Close Your Account."
    It will be located at the bottom of the list.

    Click on the link that says "Close Account."
    Remove an Email Address From Outlook
    Microsoft Outlook is a task manager application that is a part of the Microsoft Office software package.
    The application allows users to send and receive emails, create tasks, take meeting notes and store calendar events.
    Users can add multiple email accounts by creating different Outlook profiles.
    The process is simple to remove an email address at any time and it can also be performed the same way for both the 2003 and 2007 versions of Outlook.

    Minimize Microsoft Outlook if you have it open.
    Click on the "Start" button on your computer and then click on the "Control Panel" option.
    Click on the "User Accounts" option and then click on the "Mail" option.
    The "Mail Setup" dialog box will then appear.

    Click on the "Show Profiles" button.
    The "Profiles" window will then appear and show all of the different email address you have set up with Outlook.

    Click on the email address you want to remove.
    Hold down the "CTRL" key on your keyboard and select multiple email address if you want to remove more than one.

    Click on the "Remove" button.
    Close out of the dialog box and the email address will be deleted from your Outlook account.

    How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file

    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 have out look express for my emails, my problem has just happened.. i can receive emails but i can send them out , but my problem is i cannot delete my emails even if i carried them to another folder to...


    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 delete a yahoo Email account?

    If you want to close your Yahoo! account, you can follow the steps on the Account Termination page.
    You will be asked to sign in or to verify the password for the account you want to delete.
    Note: Before deleting your account, please read the instructions on the Account Termination page carefully, as important information about your account is included. You can then confirm the deletion of your account.
    • Please complete the deletion process only if you are certain you want to remove your entire Yahoo! account and any features you have personalized within the account. After you delete your Yahoo! account, you can't reactivate it, although you can always sign up for a new account.
    • When you close your account, you lose access to your Yahoo! ID, Yahoo! Mail, and profile names. We will delete your account data and settings across the Yahoo! network. This means you will lose all of your content in:

      Yahoo! Mail

      Yahoo! Address Book


      My Yahoo!

      Yahoo! Groups

      Finance Portfolio

      Any other area of Yahoo! that can only be accessed with your Yahoo! ID and password
    • Deleting your Yahoo! account does not alter or delete your Yahoo! People Search listing. You must edit or delete this separately.
    • If you are subscribed to any premium services, we recommend that you cancel them before you delete your account. There is no guarantee that deleting your Yahoo! account will immediately cancel the billing for any premium services you are subscribed to. To cancel your current subscriptions, visit Yahoo! Billing Information for your account, click My Services, and then click the Cancel link for each subscription.

    Do you have IMAP on your email server? IMAP is a duplicate of what you have in your email program, if your not deleting the messages on the server but only on your email program then your server space will be full and it will give people that send you email that message.
