If you don’t like how your email works or want to switch to a different email service, you might want to think about deleting your Outlook account. In this post, we’ll talk about how to delete your Outlook account and how to get your deleted emails back and save them.
Throw away your email address.
Remove your email address from your Outlook account? You might want to do this for more than one reason. But before you do that, you should think about it.
How to Delete My Outlook Account
First, you should know that removing an Outlook email address won’t make your account inactive. It just gets rid of your files and contacts on the computer. Microsoft apps and services will still use the old email address, though. If you want to keep your email account open, you’ll need to make a new address and set it as your main.
After setting up your new email address, you can use the web or another email app to get to it. You can also take away old email rights and send the information to a different place.
Outlook is a common email program, but it can be hard to use. This is especially true if you want to close your email account. You’ll need to make sure you’re deleting the right one. Most of the big email companies have step-by-step guides online.
During a chat, you should ignore all emails.
Using the “Ignore Conversation” tool in Outlook can help you stop unwanted email loops and speed up “email triage” sessions. You can also stop people from responding to certain parts of your chats with this function.
This tool is present in Outlook for Windows, but not in Outlook 2011 for Mac. To ignore all emails in a chat, select the emails you want to ignore and then press the Ignore button on the top bar. By hitting the Shift key, you can also choose more than one email.
You can also move a chat by clicking the Move button after choosing the message you want to move. This puts the chat thread in the Deleted Items folder. It’s important to know that new posts in this thread won’t be immediately moved. If you delete this conversation, however, all of the notes in the thread will also be removed.
You can also stop ignoring the conversation by hitting the button that says “Stop Ignoring Conversation.” This will make Outlook stop ignoring messages in the thread in the future.
Put your emails in a different online account.
Whether you are removing Outlook, moving your computer, or updating, you should have a backup of your emails. You can load your email from a PST file into any Outlook account. You can also save your emails to a different online account, though.
It’s easy to save your emails to a different online account. You can send a single email or load a PST file into a different account. You can also use password lock to protect the information in Outlook. But if your PST files are private, you may need to take harder steps.
Exchange computers will instantly save your email if you have an IMAP account. If you don’t have an IMAP account, find a mail service you can trust and use their backup services. If you don’t know much about your mail provider’s backup services, you might want to call them and ask.
You can also send names to a CSV file from Outlook. This lets Excel look for them. You can also use software that lets you take a screenshot of your screen to save a copy of your emails.
Retrieve lost emails
You can use Outlook’s search feature to look for lost emails. If you find one or more emails, you can bring them back with the Recover Selected Items tool. You can also try a tool like Recoverit, which can get back all sorts of info.
If you deleted an email more than a year ago, you might not be able to get it back. But you can easily get back emails you deleted in the last 30 days by using the Recovery tool.
Outlook gives you a lot of ways to recover lost emails. For Outlook Web, you can use a web interface or the Outlook desktop tool to get your emails back. There are also tools that can help you get back PST files that you have lost. It’s easy to use the Recovery tool, and it works well most of the time.
To get back emails you removed in Outlook, you must first look in the Removed Items box. If you can’t find the emails you want to rescue, you can move them to the Inbox, Junk Email, or Other Folders. You can also ask the person who sent the email to send it again.
