    IMAP account cannot delete - Outlook 03 crashes

    Hi together, I have the following problem:

    I want a non-functioning IMAP account in Outlook 2003, delete it. Outlook crashes, but in every action, with the IMAP account in question has to do, even when accessed through dialogue Tools / Email Accounts / Remove.
    Accordingly, I cannot file the data on the context, in order to delete it afterwards.

    Have someone an idea, as I still account from Outlook remove it? Would be very grateful for the help.

    Trying times, Outlook with the Internet to start off.

    Further attempt would be to start Outlook without having to retrieve mail (I'm not sure that this also applies for IMAP accounts). Just under Start / Run the following:

    "C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office? \ Outlook.exe" / nopollmail

    Important: The quotes must also be written and your path to Outlook must agree, if necessary adapt. The question marks relate to the folder where Outlook.exe lies.

    If this does not help, you can still enter to Outlook with a new one. Pst file to start:

    "C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office? \ Outlook.exe" / cleanpst

    OK, the first does not work, anyway Account will be retrieved.

    Thank you first for the quick reply!

    The e-mail retrieving my opinion, is not the problem. Because when Outlook starts, everything is still in the green zone. Then I break the transmission manually and everything is clean. Until I, as I said, something myself with the IMAP account, instead wants.

    I do not understand. What is the effect of this action? Then everything (including settings, etc.) and virtually duplicated under his new name? When it is, then not even the IMAP account copied?

    Everything at the beginning, is much simpler:

    Start / Control Panel / mail - and then delete the account - finished.

    Cheers

    ...and nearly 4 years later the tip is still helping people (me!).
    After attempting to link a new AOL account to Outlook (03) I could not get in to Outlook without it freezing on me. I did it twice in the past year but for some reason now it doesn't want to let me...oh well.
    Thank you!
