No delete account button on new spam account I

Views: 474 Replies: 4
hi all. I mistakenly downloaded something from a weather site and it installed a new mail account on my I pad. Now I get spam emails to that account. When I looked at the account to delete it, there is no delete account button. I shut off what I could under mail settings but I want to get rid of the account. It is listed as

I downloaded it from a site that would send me daily weather updates, but along with that I get tons of spam. I am worried it might have installed spyware that might compromise personal info. Any help please? Thanks.

Well first of all iPads are almost completely immune to spyware viruses ect. The best way to delete a mail account is to go to settings>mail, contacts, calendars And at the top of the list should be all the accounts you currently use. to delete one simply tap on it then tap "sign out" at the botto of the page.

There is a good chance a profile was installed. Go to Settings App> General> Profiles and delete the one associated with this account. You should then be able to go to mail settings and delete the account.

Your welcome.

Just a word of advice for future reference. NEVER accept a profile install unless you are absolutely certain of the source, and absolutely need it.
