If you use a Mac computer, you may be familiar with the Mail application. This is the built-in email client that comes with every Mac and features a user-friendly interface and powerful features for managing your emails. However, when you are done using the Mail application, it is important to log out of your account for security reasons.
Logging out of Mac Mail is easy
Logging out of an inactive email account on your Mac is easier than ever with the native Mail app that comes pre-installed on macOS. From there, select the email account you want to sign out from on the left side of the window. Uncheck the “Enable This Account” box so it is unchecked, then click “Sign Out” in the lower right corner of your screen. Your account will be signed out and you can now securely log into another email or deactivate your Mac entirely if you choose.
When signing out of an email account it is important to make sure that all data associated with that account is removed as well – this includes any emails, attachments, contacts, and other sensitive information. It can be done by deleting them manually or using a secure data erasure tool such as Apple FileVault for additional security. Keeping your accounts secure should always be a priority and signing out is one way to ensure no one else has access to your personal data.
Remove Mail on Mac?
Removing a mail account from your Mac is an easy task. You just have to have the Mail app open and then click on the Mail option from the upper left of your screen. In the dropdown menu, select Accounts and you’ll find all the accounts associated with your Mac. Once you’ve identified the account that needs to be deleted, simply clicking on the minus icon located in the lower corner of the main window will delete it quickly. A prompt will appear confirming if you really want to delete this account and once you hit OK, it will be gone.
This process applies not only to Gmail account but any other type of email you might have set up on your Mac as well. If there are multiple accounts that are no longer needed or used by you, then deleting them may be a good idea because having too many will make accessing mail difficult or slow down internet speed occasionally. Furthermore, if any of those unnecessary accounts gets compromised, deleting them can help prevent hackers from taking control over personal information stored with them. All in all, removing email accounts from Mac should always be considered if they are no longer necessary for one’s daily activities.
