    We should be able to get back to this point after deleting that account if...

     

    On Mail...

     

    First Quit Mail, then I'd backup these two Mail folders, by right clicking on them in the Finder, then choose Archive/Compress.

     

    Users/YourUserName/Library/Mail

     

    Users/YourUserName/Library/Mail Downloads

     

    (Could be a different folder here if you chose such in Mail Prefs)

     

    Right click on that Mail folder, choose archive, you'll get everything in the folder, and the folder itself in a file called Mail.zip, move it to a safe place, same for the Mail Downloads folder... only the plist is separate.

     

    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist

     

    Make a copy of this file then trash the original.
