Outlook is one of the major email applications used for business purposes, in that we can create a number of profiles to maintain different email accounts in a single host system. Each Outlook profile could consist of email account information including a specific user's settings. Suppose you have created three or more profiles of different user email accounts.
After some days, you may feel uncomfortable having two or more profiles in your Outlook because you cannot switch between profiles when Outlook is running. Due to this, you may decide to delete profiles, but if you do not know how to do it then follow the below-mentioned instructions to remove your Outlook profile and delete the account successfully.
How to Remove or Delete Outlook 2016 Profile?
Launch the Outlook application.
Click on the File option > Followed by Account Settings > Manage Profiles.
Select an Outlook email account or profile, then click on the Remove button.
These steps are more or less the same for all versions of Outlook including 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, and 2003 as well. This will permanently remove your account.
At times, resetting the Outlook mail profile can be extremely useful when the user encounters many Outlook-related problems, including sluggish email sending and receiving, mail profile corruption, global address book (GAL) problems, calendar sync problems, etc., can occasionally be resolved by resetting the mail profile.
How To Reset Outlook Mail Profile?
The Mail Profile is located under LocalAppData%MicrosoftOutlook.
Click on the Start option and hit the Run button.
