How to Delete Email Accounts from the Mail Application on iPhone and iPad

When you add your Google account to your iPhone or iPad in the Settings application, you add your Gmail account to the Mail application. If you prefer to use a third-party email client, you can delete the email account from the Mail application on your iPhone or iPad.

Using the Settings application, you can sign out of any email account (including Gmail, Outlook, and iCloud), while continuing to use that account to synchronize notes, contacts, and so on.

To do this, open the “Settings” application on your iPhone or iPad and open the “Password & Account” section.
Here, you will see all the accounts that you are signed in to. Tap on the account to see good details.


Next, tap the switch next to the “Mail” option to disable email synchronization. You will see that certain email inboxes will disappear from the Mail application.


You can return to the “Password & Account” section and follow the same process to delete email accounts from other services.

The process for disconnecting e-mail accounts from the Mail application works for all third-party accounts. If you want to delete an iCloud email account, the steps are a little different.

Open the “Settings” application and tap on your Apple profile found at the top of the menu.


Here, tap the “iCloud” option.

Now, scroll down and tap the switch next to the “Mail” option.


Your iCloud email has now been deactivated and will no longer appear in the Apple Mail application.

To confirm, you can open the “Mail” application again. Instead of looking at your regular e-mail inbox, you’ll see a welcome screen asking you to log in to your account.


If you don’t like using the Mail application, we will recommend the Gmail application. And if you want something with additional features and better compatibility and resolution, try the Spark application.

Continue to use the Mail application for one of your accounts? Try configuring Mail settings for a better experience.
