Remove Your CUMC Email from Outlook on Windows

If your CUMC email account no longer connects in Outlook on Windows, the settings it uses may be outdated or corrupt. Make sure Outlook has the latest Office updates, and try removing the account and following current instructions to set it up again can resolve any issues.

IMPORTANT: Some personalized settings in Outlook, such as email signatures, rules, calendar or message views, etc., or connection to archived/locally saved messages and folders, may reset to a default after removing the profile. In general, anything you can view when logged in to your CUMC email account in Web Outlook will remain, however we recommend requesting assistance from your Certified IT Group before attempting to remove the profile.
  1. Open the Mail settings on your computer: click the Start icon in the bottom left corner of your computer screen, then type Control Panel in the search bar or select it from the menu that appears. In the Control Panel select the User Accounts link, then the Mail icon.
