I entered an IMAP email into my Outlook (it is not the only email account I have). I then realized, I did not want it in my account so I went to Tools/Account Settings/Email Tab and deleted the file. I rebooted the computer and then re-opened outlook. It is still showing up in the left hand side of my accounts. Outlook is taking significantly longer to boot, and when I try to delete the Data File in Tools/Account Settings, it tells me that the data file is associated with an email account and to remove it on the Email tab, but there is no email account for it listed on the email tab.
I also opened the files where my psts are held and deleted the account there, but each time it opens outlook, it recreates that account.
Any thoughts on how to delete the email account once and for all?
