Thank you for quick reply. I wish to delete the accounts from Windows Live Mail but still have access to the emails from these accounts
Email technician: jinsmn, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 5 months ago

Before deleting a mailbox in Windows Live Mail, first move the downloaded messages into another folder. That way the messages will still be in your Mail program after you delete the mailbox. Another option is to leave the account where it is and exclude it from Syncing. Right-click on the account name in the folder pane and select Properties. On the General tab, deselect Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing.

Regards

Jins
