To Delete Email Account in DirectAdmin

3. A list of your current email accounts shows up. Select the email account you want to delete and click the Delete button.

4. The DELETE ACCOUNT window will pop up asking for your confirmation. Click on DELETE.

Note: The Clean Forwarders option will make DirectAdmin scan your forwarder values(not the forwarder names) and remove the deleted emails. This way, any emails sent to the existing forwarders will not cause bounces.

A success message will flash and, the email account will get deleted.
