[SOLVED] How to delete a mail account in Thunderbird?


Hello

I set up a mail account in Tbird 3.1.8 - only to find it was incorrect (IMAP rather than POP).

I have set up the new account correctly, but there does not seem to be any way to delete the old account. I have renamed it to avoid confudion; but I really need to delete it.

Any ideas?

Thanks - it worked perfectly.

I thought that I needed to use "Delete Account", which I seemed to remember in earlier versions was in the File drop down.

Because I am on a small netbook the bottom of the screen was not visible.

Thanks again (I will mark the initial post [SOLVED])
