How can I remove an email address from my account?

How can I remove an email address from my account?

Important points:
  1. If the email address you want to delete is a primary email address (  denotes primary email address), you cannot delete it straight away. You have to add another email address first and make it as the primary address, after which you can delete the required email address.
  2. If the email address you want to delete is hosted in Zoho, (i.e., an @zoho or @zohomail address), then you cannot delete that email address from your account.
To delete an email address from your account:
  1. Go to (or) open the profile panel from your app, then click My Account.
  2. Click Profile in the left panel, then click Email Address.
  3. Click next to the recovery email address you want to remove. You cannot delete primary email address. Refer to the note at the top.
  4. Click Confirm.
