Hi,

Here are instructions to delete an email address associated with your domain:

Warning: Deleting a mailbox/email account permanently deletes the mailbox and all of its contents and mailing lists. Once deleted, it can't be recovered. Consider backing up emails before deleting a mailbox. Read this post to find out how to back up emails.


  1. Click Email on the left.




  2. Click Manage my email account.




  3. If you have more than one domain in your account, confirm the current domain is the one you want. If not, click switch to another domain.




  4. Click on the trash can to the right of the mailbox name to delete that mailbox.



  5. Click delete to confirm your request.



Hope that helps!
