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.

Step 1

Minimize Microsoft Outlook if you have it open. Click on the "Start" button on your computer and then click on the "Control Panel" option.

Step 2

Click on the "User Accounts" option and then click on the "Mail" option. The "Mail Setup" dialog box will then appear.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

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