What is an e-mail profile? E-mail profiles are what Outlook uses to remember which e-mail accounts you use and where the data for each account is stored. Each profile provides Outlook with the following information:
- What account information to use This information includes the user name, display name, e-mail server name, and Internet service provider (ISP) account password.
- Where the e-mail data is delivered and stored In Outlook, data is delivered and stored either on the e-mail server or a in .pst file on your computer. This data includes rules, messages, contacts, calendars, notes, tasks, journals, Search Folders, and other settings.
Outlook e-mail profiles are stored in the Windows registry. When Outlook starts, it retrieves the profile information from the registry.
Up till now, there still no formal process of signing out of outlook. But you can follow these steps to remove your profile on outlook.
- Right-click start-up menu on your PC - Click control panel (Which displays all control panel items) - Click on “Mail” - Select “Show Profile” - Highlight the account and press “Remove”
