I have been trying to delete my old email account in Outlook 2010 and then creating a new account from the beginning. I understand I will lose my emails and contacts in Outlook but have already saved a back-up. I just can't figure out how to delete the entire account and start fresh with a new one. They are both msn (hotmail) accounts. Please help!! I have a moderate understanding of computer use but can follow directions well :)

'Control Panel|Mail|Show Profiles', select the profile(s) you see there and click "Delete". This erases all accounts. Next, on the same screen, click "Add" to create a new profile. Next, select the new profile and click the "Properties" button to add E-mail Accounts. Note that none of this will have any effect oh your old email messages and contacts, they will still be safe and sound in your old Data file(s), which you can re-use if you care to.

Reconnect your old Outlook data file Hal
